It is a commissioned painting of the Goblin Queen by Parrillo. I thought it was Parrillo and did a quick search. Here is the ComicArtFan page. In the comments, the owner states it was a commission.

Speaking of cool covers just came across this yesterday. Maybe it's just me but I think the coloring makes this a pretty striking cover?

@Peterc777, great cover! I love some of those Scalphunter covers esp. that Lincoln one! In fact I originally thought of posting a (different) Scalphunter cover myself, but I couldn't resist that Rex "tongue-in-cheek" cover by none other than the great Gil Kane.

Thank you, and yeah, I had two other Weird Westerns with Scalphunter that I was deciding between but decided to go with that one 'cause it seemed to be the "weirdest." That Rex cover is definitely getting at least one vote from me.

Not a cover but a splash page from SIMON and KIRBY'S "BOYS'
RANCH" #1.

I looked to see if Giants was a previously used theme but I didn't see that it was. There was one title Giant Sized but I assumed it was referring to the size of the comic like Annuals/King Size. Hopefully this is a unique theme to the contest.

What do you think is happening here? A conspiracy?


It's been a while since the 'c' word was shouted in the weekly cover thread[s], but you know you're at the heart of it- 'Fess up!

My opinion on this week’s theme - there needs to be two or more bad people beating up a good guy or girl - he or she is outnumbered. The bad guys/girls should also appear to be winning, or there is no beat down.

@esaravo Exactly how I interpreted the theme as well....theres a couple of entries where it's a one on one fight.

My 2 cents worth... I do now see where it says Two or more.. so it's to late for me and others to edit our one person beat downs.. I missed the "Two or more" but my thoughts were (and others I see) was a "Beat Down" is a beat down.. So with saying all of that.. It narrows the contest down to fewer correct picks.. Speaking for myself, I will defiantly be reading with more comprehension from now on..

here was my runner-up pick that would have also been wrong.. no hard feelings My Bad..

@Gotlift - Don’t worry about it, Tom. It’s all supposed to be for fun. Hope you are staying safe (and watch out for that next TS - Zeta).
Ed
PS - What book is your runner-up virgin cover pick from?

Uncanny X-Men #451 If my Memory serves me right I don't think it was actually published as a virgin
I think this came from a poster version

That was my interpretation. Either the hero/ character has been beaten already or the bad guys/gals have the upper hand 👍

I missed that part on my submission. I equated "beat down" to a fight....not necessarily that the good guy was losing. It's all there in the description I just didn't pick up on that....on my submission Shang Chi is delivering the beat down not receiving the beat down.

My submission (Warlock) is also the one doing the beat down. Although, considering the mountain of villains our hero is dealing with, he is looking a little BEAT (tired).
