That's a great cover. Does a nice job of capturing ones imagination. I like the color scheme also.

@EbayMafia Happy to see your post for this week...didn't think
about it but my scan is very poor. I think this might be a truly
underrated comic.

@martymann It's not very well known but it's certainly expensive enough. The last Flash Comic book before he was revived in the Silver Age. I don't own a copy but I saw one at a show last year and loved it.

Where are we on the subject of art on blank covers?

I believe it's negative space, if I had a artist draw a negative space cover on a blank issue I would have submitted it.

I think it's iffy, but I would say the more the merrier. And it's technically probably a better example than some other entries.

Have I told you about the time I dropped off 3,000 comics at SDCC? Scifinator private msg quote post Address this user
This was the other entry from my pc that I was going to post but thought the negative was too subtle.

I then realized that black background is the Batman and wish I had votes left to give.

I can't just pick one!!!!!!
Bowing out this week, as I would take the Marvel 2-in-1 annual and Avengers annual that make one story.
Starlin goodness and such a great read!

Yeah, I'm struggling. I'm thinking X-men 138 as it does a great recap of the X-men adventures from issue 1 to issue 137. But it would be a pretty melancholy book to read over and over again.

Seems like your sister would get along real well with the Salem's Seven.

@Reelgee we did a thread a while back where everyone listed their personal top five comics. Probably long archived by now but you should still be able to bring it up if you search “your personal top 5”.

I think I've got the votes. Never been in this position before (or even close), do I get to declare myself the winner and start a new contest?

The WCC has no official chairperson, so the winner is most certainly privileged to announce themself. Pretty much anybody who wants to take the time, and do the math (if necessary) may announce the winner.

@EbayMafia and congratulations!
