***this is a re-post as the original version of this thread - which is now lost in the forums forever.

Hi all,

I have always loved the community created lists that we have here on ComicVine, so I thought that I would take a shot at something pretty similar in concept.

When we all became comic book fans (however long ago that may be), the first thing that all of us will remember is the cover of the comic - I mean, it is the first thing we see even before reading any comic. So, I would like to get the ComicVine community to vote for which they think is the most iconic comic book cover of all time.

HOW THIS WILL WORK:

  • I would like to invite all members to sign up as nominators - please reply below.
  • I would like there to be 20 nominators
  • Each nominator will then nominate 5 covers each (along with (brief) reasons as to why that cover is considered iconic)
  • The nominators will then be allocated 5 votes each and vote for the most iconic choices
  • This list will be reduced to 32 (or 64) - and the covers will be arranged in a knock-out format
  • The entire community will then vote for each round, eliminating covers along the way
  • We will then be left with one MOST iconic comic book cover of all time

SPECIAL THANKS TO for all your advice - and suggesting that I should re-post after the original thread was somehow deleted.

I look forward to hosting such a process.

So please, sign up! The nomination process has already begun!

:)
