Rules are simple.

You select 26 books, one for each letter.

For example- A could be Action, or Amazing Fantasy or Avengers.

 

 

I will select the collection I think is best and the winner gets a $25 Restaurant.com certificate.

Get your selection in by Monday 6PM, West Coast time.

Somehow I think there won't be a lot of variables possible. So many of the letters have obvious choices!

Shad - do the books need to be in your personal collection or no?

I will select the collection I think is best...

 

In terms of what? I'm sure there's a guy out there who has a shark cover for every letter of the alphabet thinking, "naw... he won't like it!"

His thread, his choice, his rules, his prize.

 

I think that's fair.

 

Plus I think there's quite a few variables.

 

If a list doesn't have somewhere for say Spiderman, but has two appearances of Superman then there's a lot of room for manoeuvre.

 

Flash v Fantastc Four as well..?

 

Hmmmmmmmm
