COVER CONTEST WEEK 41: BAD WEATHER3087

COLLECTOR JLS_Comics private msg quote post Address this user
A theme will be chosen each week, so participants must find a comic book cover that fits the theme.

- One entry (one book) per person.
- Must be a real comic book in circulation.
- Magazine size books are also okay.
- The book does not have to be in your collection.
- Variants and sketch covers are acceptable.
- The previous winner is allowed to win in this contest.

Each week we will vote on who had the best cover.

- Friday begins the new contest.
- Wednesday at 12 noon EST is the cutoff which starts voting that will go through Thursday at 11:59 PM EST.
- Please vote through the built in "Thumbs Up" system. One vote per person.

The winner will choose the next theme and begin a new thread.

- In the event of a tie, the deciding factor will be if your photo was of a book in a CBCS slab. If both books are not in a CBCS slab then there will be a sudden death tie breaker overtime submission by both contestants.

- Repost these rules in your new thread to keep them easy to find and for new folks who want to play.

The weather here in south Florida this week has been HORRIBLE! I'm talking monsoon-level storms and major flooding all over the place. Kayaks, Water Moccasins, stranded people needing to be rescued from their flooded out vehicles and alligators swimming in the streets type of situations.

So this is week 41. The number 41 is the number forthe chemical element Niobium. Niobium is named after the Greek Goddess Niobe, a lady whose entire family and all her children were murdered. She is known for her endless rain of tears.

What a perfect week to display some covers showing superheroes in the rain, bad weather, lightning. There's a lot of amazing ones out there ... let's seem 'em!

I've always taken this cover to represent lightening... but it's Doctor Strange so really? It could be anything.

I had the same thought about posting a Conan cover! Those were always so dynamic & told a story with each cover alone. Nice! 👍🏼

Thanks for reminding my how much I love this cover. Because of you, I went to my LCS yesterday and picked up a NM copy for $5.
