Cover Contest Week 63: ‘634788

Witnessed cigs dielinfinite private msg quote post Address this user
An official victor hasn’t yet been called in last week’s contest so if someone more legitimate emerges to start their own, feel free to ignore this one.

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 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.
- Don't vote early.

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.

Only one vote in so far. Plenty of time left.

Hard to pick!!! At least it's all on the same page. I believe comic book crazies are allowed to vote, even if they didn't submit an entry???

At aged eight years old I really believed these stories.
"What, poor Robin is dead?" I must have thought, but I really do remember Superman being trapped under a red sun and thinking "how is he going to get home, are there not going to be any more Superman comics" (I always thought that this was an alien planet and have only just discovered that it was Earth in the future)?

I will never ever be an eight year old again with a child's wonder and innocence which is why I haven't bought any new comics for decades.

I cannot chose between these two wonderful comics. Can I split my vote and give them one half each?

I'm sorry I couldn't break the tie, I had to vote my conscience. That Magnus Robot Fighter is the best. I think I might start collecting Gold Key just for the covers.
