Classic Cover Contest: 17 May 2023 to 23 May 2023: Turning off the Fawcett
First, thank you all for participating in a favorite tradition here at CCF. And an extra thank you to those who voted for that stunning Alex Toth cover.
Now, on to this week's contest.
It was seventy years ago, in 1953, that the final iconic Fawcett titles made it to the stands. This week, in honor of the great Fawcett legacy, let’s post our favorite covers from any year published the company that was largely responsible for making the Golden Age so golden, the company that brought us characters like Spy Smasher, Bulletman, Captain Midnight, Nyoka, Ibis, a slew of great Western movie stars, and of course, Whiz Comics and the phenomenon that was Captain Marvel and his extended family.
Here's one to get us going:
Soldier Comics 8, March 1953
The Cover Contest Constitution:
Post one, and only one, classic cover that fits the theme of the contest.
- Cover must be from a published comic book or collected volume published before 23 May 2013. (not a difficult bit of compliance this week.)
- Please include the title and the issue number of the comic in bold (e.g. Soldier Comics 8, March 1953) in case some posters cannot see your image.
- Covers must be posted before voting begins.
- Voting takes place on Tuesday, 23 May 2023, beginning at 12:01 am PST and ending at 11:59 am PST.
- Vote by posting the name of the poster whose cover best fits the theme or that you simply like the most in bold.
- The winner of the contest is the entrant with the most votes after the voting period ends.
- The winner chooses the theme for the next week's contest.
- If you don't think the cover fits the theme, don't vote for it; please don't post disparaging remarks about it.
- If a cover is more recent than the classic time frame, kindly point it out to the poster, who may then choose an alternate before voting begins.
Have fun, everybody!
