Cover Contest Week 73: UPGRADES!5301

COLLECTOR JLS_Comics private msg quote post Address this user
A theme will be chosen each week, so participants must find a comic book cover that fits the theme.

- One entry (one book) per person.
- Must be a real comic book in circulation.
- Magazine size books are also okay.
- The book does not have to be in your collection.
- Variants acceptable.
- The previous winner is allowed to win in this contest.

Each week we will vote on who had the best cover.

- Friday begins the new contest.
- Wednesday at 12 noon EST is the cutoff which starts voting that will go through Thursday at 11:59 PM EST.
- Please vote through the built in "Thumbs Up" system.
- One vote per person.
- Don't vote early.

The winner will choose the next theme and begin a new thread.

- In the event of a tie, the deciding factor will be if your photo was of a book in a CBCS slab. If both books are not in a CBCS slab then there will be a sudden death tie breaker overtime submission by both contestants.

- Repost these rules in your new thread to keep them easy to find and for new folks who want to play.

Whether it's a product of the time or something necessitated by the story, there have been so many times when a character has had to upgrade their cache and their weaponry or dawn a new or re-designed costume. So show me your favorite cover feature a character's debut new suit or new weapons systems!

Some people might consider Steve Rogers switching to Nomad as a downgrade, but I enjoyed the storyline.

I know #252 and Secret Wars #8 are the "keys" but this artwork blows them away.

Millie the Model #93, November 1959. Story by Stan Lee, art and cover by Stan Goldberg. Overstreet has "Last Dan DeCarlo issue?" noted in their guide. While this isn't a new costume, I think this was right before they debuted a new look for the character. This cover is clearly inspired by Dan DeCarlo's work, who is famous for the Archie look.

Maybe a bit more of a change than just a new suit... but it's the first thing I thought of in my own collection
