For this contest it's your favorite first cover.
Now this can be the cover to your favorite first issue, OR the your favorite cover from a first issue.
It should be an issue #1, an exemption would be something from the early days of Marvel and DC when the first issue of a super hero was from a title already in existence.
So Astounding Showcase #27 the first issue for Captain SpeedyGuy would be good, as well as issue #1 of Captain SpeedyGuy's own comic.
But not just the first appearance of this or that character in someone else's book or first time someone did something. So Bulk-Thing #138, where Hell-Ferret first popped up doesn't count.
Or a call back to my win last week No "Omega Men" where a certain Czarnian first showed up.
So real first issues. Hope I made it clear for everyone.
For my Cover I am picking the one that got comic collecting started for me.
The legendary Barry Smith and Conan.
