Best of the Best Will Eisner Hall of Fame Sketch

toucan_hof_zpsf30d6faa.png

 

So who has the Best SS Sketch done by a member of the Will Eisner Hall of Fame around? Let’s find out.

 

:rulez:

 

1)The sketch must contain any sketch that was done by a member of the Will Eisner Hall of Fame.

Here are the current artists and writers in the Will Eisner Hall of Fame that may of had a sketch that was submitted and graded underneath the CGC SS program.

 

Alex Toth, Will Eisner, Robert Crumb, Steve Ditko, Frank Franzetta, Gil Kane, Charles M. Schulz, Neal Adams, Jean Giraud, Joe Kubert, Joe Simon, Murphy Anderson, Art Spiegelman, Dickk Sprang, Carmine Infantino, Alfonso Williamson, Dale Messick, Marie Severin, Sergio Aragones, John Buscema, Dan DeCarlo, John Romita Sr, Jack Davis, Will Elder, Al Feldstein, John Severin, Kazno Koike, Goseki Kojima, Jules Feiffer, Don Martin, Jerry Robinson, Albert Uderzo, Johnny Craig, Nick Cardy, Gene Colan, Romana Fradon, Jim Steranko, Stan Lee, Mike Esposito, Dickk Ayers, Arnold Drake, Len Wein, Barry Windsor-Smith, Russ Heath, Steve Gerber, Dickk Giordano, Michael Kaluta, Jaxon, Martin Nodell, Mort Drucker, Harvey Pekar, Roy Thomas, Marv Wolfman, Bill Blackbeard, Richard Corben, Katsuhiro Otomo, Gilbert Shelton, Al Jaffee, Trina Robbins, Spain Rodriguez, Joe Sinnott, Irwin Hasen, Sheldon Moldoff, Hayao Miyazaki, Alan Moore, Dennis O'Neil, and Bernie Wrightson

 

2) CGC SS Only. Any sketches currently en route to or presently at CGC for CGC SS are also acceptable.

3) If you know of a sketch that you think is the best nominate it. One nomination per owner. Owner with multiple sketches nominated must pick only one sketch to be voted on.

4) When nominating, please include artist name and owner's board name. Any sketch w/o all this info will not be eligible. Also having the CGC label visible does not negate this; as not all labels are readable. Recommend way to present the sketch is:

 

Owner: Joe Cool

Artist: Cooler Joe

 

Followed by photo.

 

5) Round 1: All nominated Sketches will be voted on in a Poll. Then the Top 2 will face off. The winner will be declared the Best of the Best Will Eisner Hall of Fame Sketch CGC SS Sketch!

6) Tie Breaks: In the event of a tie for the second spot in the Finals, a 48 hour sudden death round between the tied sketches will be implemented. In the event of a tie at the end of the finals, a 24 hour sudden death poll will be implemented.

7) Once a winner has been declared, the category will be placed into one of four groups. Each group will come up three times a year in which you can nominate any sketch in a category that falls into that group which nominations are open for. Nominations will be accepted until the 20th of each month at that time polls go up and voting begins. In the event of multiple challengers wanting to take on the champ, they will first compete against each other in a battle royal. The winner of the battle royal will then get a title shot at the existing champ. After voting ends the category is closed til the next time the group comes up in rotation.

8) What makes the best sketch is up to the voter: Best Art, Artists, Grade …

9) In Team categories only, collages/multibook murals composing are single overall sketch are now eligible to compete. This not being a team, NO Multi-Sketch books here.

10) Reigning champions can compete in any category for which they are eligible.

11) The winner decides the next category. Their cover will also represent the CGC Best of the Best as the Facebook Profile picture until the next category is complete.

a) A category can be something simple as Best of the Best %character% or %artist%; or something as complex as Best of the Best Blue Pants (character must be wearing blue pants lol ).

b) It can be as narrow or broad as the winner wants. Let your imagination run wild.

c) If it is so narrow that only one book can compete, the winner must pick a new category. If no new category can be picked, a new one will be selected based on a public poll.

12) Neither a person on CGC's probation list or Hall of Shame can nominate a sketch they own in CGC's Best of the Best competitions.

a) The most updated list of who is on the probation list and the Hall of Shame can be found on the last page of the link provided http://boards.collectors-society.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=1646534&fpart=1

13) If the owner of a comic that holds a CGC Best of the Best title for a category ends being voted into the CGC Hall of Shame after the book has already won. The book keeps the title and the artist can still use the title trophy in their byline, but the owner gets stripped of the ability to use the title in their byline and removed from mention on CGCSketch.com

 

 

 

The Winner gets Bragging Rights and will decide the next category!

 

Remember this is for fun and to showcase your art. So lets keep it that way and check the drama at the door.

 

All Challengers need to be in by the 1st of November for a Poll to be created soon to follow. I have extended this one to the first to allow anyone who got sketches done by a member of the Will Eisner Hall of Fame at NYCC to be able to get a picture up of the comic and proper amount of time to contact their handler to get a picture if necessary

Love what has been nominated so far and a great way to see legends work across the board.

The Neal Adams rock, we even get a writer in this Len Wein, Jerry Robinson, Joe Sinnott, Sergio Aragones, and the Ramona Fradon pieces great.

^^

Well this makes 3 wins in a row on new categories for me. I could pick the next category, but I am going to open the floor for nominations to the boards for the next category and run a poll the top two in votes move on to the final round to face off against each other and the one that wins in the end is the next category. I will explain the details in a new thread and rules for nominating a category.
