I got a response in my junk thread to one of my books from comicdonna that got me thinking. What are the top 10 GA comic covers (that you own)? I know, a near impossible task. Kind of like picking your favorite child. But when you think about your collection. What 10 come to mind right away? Here are mine. (This could change in 5 minutes) but here is my stab. What are yours?

 

This one was easy. Love the colors, the mood and the fact the figure is so prominant:

This one just pops to mind very quickly as well. It would have had my dime fast!

This one is just so full of action and after all, I am Robot Man...

By, far, my favorite MAD cover. MAD has a special place to me because this is what inspired me to go down this dark road.

My favorite Friction House book for sure. Love the colors, the situation and the anticipation of what is about to happen.

Nedor is almost impossible and I could change this one easily 10 times. Schomburg is one of my favorite artists. But this one pops up first in my mind. Again, color, mood and antipication of what is to come...

My favorite MLJ. This cover just sums up World War II so well.

Same reason as above. I just love how pissed Superman is!

Nuff said!

Got this as a kid in a used book store. Had to buy it (the devil made me do it). And is probably my favorite L. B. Cole cover (if you can even pick one)

I love when these top 3, 5, 10, requests pop up! :) Its always fun to see everybody's pride and joys.

 

I'll start with this one. I admit that the grade has something to do with my fondness for this book but its one of my wife's favorites as well so it just barely edges out the second book I'll post. I can't see this cover without feeling happy; its just a clean lined, simple layout book that makes me smile.

The next one, of course, is:
