Okay, I've seen a few of these recently and thought to myself "Hey! I'll do one of those." (Thank you @rikr2, @deadite and @bruxae for the idea)

You are to vote for your favourite cover between the two, these covers will be from any era, any publisher and featuring any character.

You're only allowed one vote, each round will last 10 votes.

EDITS:

  1. In the event of a tie there will be 1 final vote to decide the winner.
  2. Due to the popularity of this topic voting has now been extended to 20 votes per round.

So here it is, the first round:

Round 1.

The Flash #123 - Flash of Two Worlds!

VS

The Amazing Spider-Man #129 - The Punisher Strikes Twice

Ooh, tough call. I guess I'll go with the Spidey cover - simply because I think the overall layout is better. The Flash one is definitely iconic, but doesn't catch my eye as much. And juvenile as it is, both Flashes yelling 'I'm coming!' has a certain funniness to it XD

Hm, both look amazingly exciting (30 years ago), but I have to go with Green Lantern co-starring Green Arrow.

#29 Edited by Shark_Repellent_Bat_Spray (745 posts) - - Show Bio

3-2! Surfer is the lead.

@themanintheshoe: They're still quite awesome after all these years! Buscema was incredible and Adams still is.

#30 Posted by TheManInTheShoe (3878 posts) - - Show Bio

@shark_repellent_bat_spray: It's not like I mean their no good, I'm just saying with the technology we have today the artist make even better covers, but these are still awesome!

#31 Posted by Shark_Repellent_Bat_Spray (745 posts) - - Show Bio

@themanintheshoe: Amazing as modern comic art is, I prefer these classic covers and artists, there is a special charm and elegance about them.

However, this continuing tournament will of course include art from all eras! I'm picking 2 from the modern age next.
