There are still covers being posted before the deadline.


(1) There are instances when we lose track of what thread we are viewing, see a great cover, and instinctively slam a like. And soon realize,.."oh crap", this is the WCC! It happens, and has happened to me on numerous occasions.

(2) There are rules; and they are there for a reason. To be read, understood, and abided. If there are any questions, just ask.

@southerncross and @Pre_Coder - I could understand an occasional mistake early vote. But what do you do when they vote for more than three covers?

One of the early voters seemed like someone new who didn't read what the thread was about. The other early voting was presumably the standard oopsy voting. I assume early votes are ignored regardless of reason.

If I could, I would. I swear. DrWatson private msg quote post Address this user
I don't think they have been discounted in the past. How would you know? You would have to eliminate all their votes and who follows that?

@DrWatson I don't know who's awake at midnight(ish) on a Thursday to count votes and take screenshots, but someone typically is. With the fussin' that happens around the contest I assume someone cares enough to pay attention Wednesday morning and make adjustments.

Negative space is a tough concept that I don't 100% understand myself, but in case it helps: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Negative_space . In an art book I went through, there was a negative space exercise where you draw the space around something as opposed to the thing itself. Dunno if that's helpful.

Basically, Negative Space refers to the part of the image that is not the subject. Every image has negative space but the contest is specifically about pieces that use the negative space as a integral part of the piece. You will see a lot of characters defined by a lack of rendering as opposed to being the subject rendered, often using minimal details to define a solid background color into a shape your mind can “fill in the blanks” and recognize as a character



Look at the image below and what the artist has actually drawn. It is not actually a whole lot but it does define the (negative) space that is not drawn so you can still understand that you are looking at a hallway or an arcade

@HeinzDad Does mine qualify as negative space? I feel like it's kind of borderline but if it does qualify it may be one of the earliest examples. You're Big Baller Boss for the week so let me know.

Here's the thing... Art is how you interpret it. Does it work for you? If it does then the answer is yes. Also, on likely my only cover contest do you think I'm going to bust fellas balls?

Huh, I thought that was the point of winning. I better rethink that in case I actually win one day.

That's a great cover. Does a nice job of capturing ones imagination. I like the color scheme also.

@EbayMafia Happy to see your post for this week...didn't think
about it but my scan is very poor. I think this might be a truly
underrated comic.

@martymann It's not very well known but it's certainly expensive enough. The last Flash Comic book before he was revived in the Silver Age. I don't own a copy but I saw one at a show last year and loved it.

Where are we on the subject of art on blank covers?

I believe it's negative space, if I had a artist draw a negative space cover on a blank issue I would have submitted it.
