CSTowle just for picking MY era's Guardians.
I love this just for Bob Larkin's complete fanboy nerdery.
marvelmaniac6169. I'd completely forgotten about that one. Stan even put a caption at the end of the story saying basically, kids, this was a try-out, do you want Captain America back or not?
Dell Four-Color was probably the most successful audition book anyone ever published. I think it even beat DC's SHOWCASE for the number of successful launches.
It's true. However, I've seen several that totally fit the theme that I would never have considered. I'd honestly forgotten how many regular series in comics had issues that were essentially 'back...
I'm afraid someone already used that one.
Trying to come up with something new, it occurred to me that in itself might make for an interesting contest.

Lot of DC this time out, I think.
DubipR, just because there's been a Robert E. Howard theme lately in the home library this week. Synchronicity.
Might be a little on the nose....
I'm politically much closer to Denny O'Neil than Chuck Dixon, but I'm not looking for Dixon to run for office. I want him to write cool stories and he does. For macho tough-guy stuff and crime...
Abbey Road. Well, used to be, anyway.
