Doug: On, then, to the 3rd round of voting in our quest to choose the best costume of the Bronze Age. Remember, it's the threads, not the character in them or storylines in which they were featured. We're all about sartorial splendor around here. My apologies for the seeming error in numbering on the 14th and 15th bracket spots; apparently an over-zealous reader/voter began casting before I could get everything proofread and in place. Once someone votes, the polls cannot be edited. Rest assured that in spite of my typographical boo-boo, the polls are listed in order.
Doug: So we may as well have something to talk about today (in addition to the brackets themselves -- some interesting match-ups in this round!), because that's what we do around here. How about this one? Can you name a favorite Bronze Age story or cover that featured one of the characters on the list? Not just any story or cover, but one that is especially memorable or significant to you as a link to your younger years. As an example, I'd offer up the cover to Champions #11, featuring a very cool Gil Kane offering of a quite large Bill Foster about to go splat after a pummeling from the Champs' flying car! That should get us going. And as always, thanks in advance for playing!
EDIT: Hey, all --
It just occurred to me that I set the end date wrong for this round. To stay on schedule, I'm going to cut this off early Tuesday evening -- the polls have been ending at 5:00 pm CT in the States. So I'll be filling out the brackets for the purpose of advancement around that time, and then posting the next round late Tuesday evening. Sorry for the confusion (which was all mine!).
