-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 Jan 1 2004 (this is a classics comic forum and we voted 10 years as the unofficial standard for being a classic).
-Covers must be posted before voting begins.
-Voting runs from 12 AM PST Tuesday until 12 AM Wednesday PST.
-Vote by posting the name of the poster whose cover best fits the theme or that you simply like the most. Put the name 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, don't post disparaging remarks about it. If a cover is more recent that the Classic time frame, kindly point it out and the poster can choose an alternate before voting begins.
People don't want the Truth. They want only information that supports what they think they already know. -Vess from Invisible Kingdom
I see a comics culture that preserves and appreciates its past, but doesn't wallow in witless nostalgia. -Scott McCloud
Humans beings always do the most intelligent thing…after they’ve tried every stupid alternative and none of them have worked -Buckminster Fuller

The Outsiders! I'm biased because it was Jim Aparo's way in to the attention-grabbing team book craze of the 80's, and I get a kick out of seeing his co-creations from this book showing up on TV (Arrow, The Brave & the Bold), getting their own comics (Katana), being proposed as tv series (Looker), but beyond this simple level of affection, I really dig this ensemble, with the motherly bond Katana had to Halo, the Tony-Isabella-approved Black Lightning so well-characterized, longtime fave Metamorpho (one of my favorite designs that I forgot last Classic Comics Christmas!), the hiply-uncool Geo-Force, and even the inexplicable Looker. The post-Aparo incarnations did nothing for me, but man, do I love this particular line-up!
