Okay, I've seen a few of these recently and thought to myself "Hey! I'll do one of those." (Thank you @rikr2, @deadite and @bruxae for the idea)

You are to vote for your favourite cover between the two, these covers will be from any era, any publisher and featuring any character.

You're only allowed one vote, each round will last 10 votes.

EDITS:

  1. In the event of a tie there will be 1 final vote to decide the winner.
  2. Due to the popularity of this topic voting has now been extended to 20 votes per round.

So here it is, the first round:

Round 1.

The Flash #123 - Flash of Two Worlds!

No Caption Provided

VS

The Amazing Spider-Man #129 - The Punisher Strikes Twice

No Caption Provided

Ooh, tough call. I guess I'll go with the Spidey cover - simply because I think the overall layout is better. The Flash one is definitely iconic, but doesn't catch my eye as much. And juvenile as it is, both Flashes yelling 'I'm coming!' has a certain funniness to it XD

3-3. I like the Flash cover better. But the Punisher cover is pretty good as well. Tough choice.

Hm, both look amazingly exciting (30 years ago), but I have to go with Green Lantern co-starring Green Arrow.

@themanintheshoe: Amazing as modern comic art is, I prefer these classic covers and artists, there is a special charm and elegance about them.

However, this continuing tournament will of course include art from all eras! I'm picking 2 from the modern age next.

@rikr2: Apologies, as mentioned in my first post the limit is 10 votes. However, if you want I don't mind waiting for a final vote in the event of a tie in the future?

0-2 to Wonder Woman!
