LOL!

I accidentally voted on this, forgetting this was the weekly contest.

I stand by my decision.


I've got a handful of these creatures the gimmick was the only reason I bought the dern things.

Is the White Poly-bag ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #500 as rare as the
Black SUPERMAN #75?

Here’s my overtime, tie breaker submission.




Bloodstrike #1 by Rob Liefeld, had “blood spatters” on the cover. The red ink reacted to body heat. The idea was that readers could rub the “blood” with their fingers and it would “disappear”, kinda like those thermochome shirts from the 90’s.

There WAS a scratch and sniff entered in the contest and it surprised me that this one never showed up. This is Harley Quinn Annual #1 with "Rub and smell". One of the scents was quite controversial at the time. I chose to go with a tamer version for the forum.




And personally, I don't think there is a bigger gimmick cover than the homage cover. But I decided to save what sanity I have left by not going through 3,000 ASM 300 "homage" covers to choose an example. Purely my opinion.

In keeping with the Death of Superman theme, I present to you, the die cut Reign of the Supermen covers.

For my tie-breaker, I am going sideways. As a bonus, this issue also hypes the free Lakeside Tattooz insert.

Missed this comp so won't post pic but the holo disc on my Web of spiderman #125 still dazzles everyone I show it to.( just showed it to my wife while I was reminiscing about gimmick covers)

The 3d standing up and squatting down scarlet Spider is admittedly still pretty cool

We are all tied up with several entries in the lead with two votes apiece.

Bringing up the rear with zero votes is DrChaos.

It looks like both @martymann and I have 5 votes each. I won just a few weeks ago and, honestly, I have no idea what to pick!!! So, I'll concede to Marty so that we can have a new contest!!!

@Jesse_O @Savage_Spawn- Thanks to both of you! I appreciate the
opportunity to select a topic and I truly appreciate your offer to
post my choice for me.
How about covers showing PARACHUTES?

Marty
