There were so many covers to choose from this week. I originally chose this one:



But switched it to a more lively cover. Did I make the right choice?

@esaravo I personally prefer the original because it's different, but I also rarely win.

TRA LA LA esaravo private msg quote post Address this user
@xkonk - That’s why I first picked the original one, because I thought not many people would have seen it. Maybe I will switch back again. Too many choices (then there’s the Jimmy Olsen one).

I switched it back. Thanks, Alex!

Didnt post because my odd interpretations are … odd.

Ambush

Each of them can fairly say “Am bush!” AND they are being ambushed by some creatures in meteorites.

@esaravo LOL, of course you would know. I suspect that you are actually @sborock and the @esaravo moniker is your alter ego cover...

You can't go wrong with those two.

And @flanders submitted Astonishing 30 which was actually my first choice, but I went with Strange Worlds 2.

Although I would be more tickled to have the A30 in my collection.

- lol!

When I was ten years old, I got my first Overstreet Price Guide and wore it out staring at all those Golden Age book covers that I could only dream about then (and sadly, still now for most of them). Meanwhile, Steve probably had bought and sold a few copies of Action Comics #1 by the time he was 10, and has physically handled and graded nearly every Edgar Church/Mile High, Crippen D, Gaines, Savannah, Northland, etc. pedigree copies. Hell, he has graded all of the pedigrees you could name (except maybe the Promise Collection) and many of the highest graded copies of most known comics! As Garth and/or Wayne would say, I am not worthy to be mentioned in the same sentence as Mr. Borock.

And I know there are some way better Infinity Covers that have been done 👍

@southerncross I have 6 contest themes lined up and "infinity covers" was one of them.

Good call!

Friendly Ghost Casper #1 is a pretty good one if anybody is interested.




EDIT: Nevermind, I just noticed @brysb submitted that one.

Is Casper sporting a little bump under the covers?
