Cover Contest Week 76:Non-fictional Charact5486

Collector Helric1 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 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.

This cover has a plethora of real life celebrities. I can only identify a few.

I do see,... Jesus Christ, David Letterman, Michael Jackson, Popeye, Alfred E Newman, Jackson Brown, Elvis Presley, Mike Tyson, JFK, Jimi Hendrix, fat guy at the top with yellow cap (can't recall his name),..

Maybe you guys can help out here...
