SPIDER-MANDATE: Lowe Talks Spidey & Friends on the Edge of "Secret Wars"
All the way until December 20th, I will be doings posts featuring seven memorable Marvel covers from the past 50 years (since Fantastic Four #1 came out, the beginning of the “Marvel Age”). I will be posting them in essentially random fashion. It does not matter if a cover shows up today or Day 15, they all have the same chance for your final vote. Once all 105 covers are posted, you all will pick the top 50 most memorable covers in the history of the “Marvel Age” and I’ll reveal your choices to you on December 22nd and 23rd.
E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for suggestions for covers that you think should be among the choices for the final vote. Remember, we’re talking “memorable” not necessarily “the best looking” covers. Think covers that get homaged a lot, covers that routinely pop up as part of histories of certain characters, etc.
Read on for the last seven covers!
Plus, someone complained that this cover wasn’t one of the Wild Card choices. I don’t think it would have made the top seven in the voting, but it probably should have been one of the 85 choices, so I’ll let it have a special entry into the voting (it is not like it will matter much in the long run, but hey, at least it has a theoretical shot now)….
