Weekly Cover Contest - In Glorious WIDESCREEN!11652

COLLECTOR dielinfinite private msg quote post Address this user
New check mark votes for WEEKLY COVER CONTEST:
You vote three check marks for your FIRST favorite
Two check marks for the SECOND favorite
One check mark for the THIRD favorite.
You do not need to vote for three covers, but it is strongly encouraged!!! Let's have fun with this!!!


A new theme will be chosen each week, so participants must find a comic book that fits the theme

- One entry per person.
- Must be real comic books in circulation.
- Magazine size books are also okay.
- The book does not have to be in your collection.
- Variants 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 "three check marks" system.
- Don't vote early.
- The winner will be the cover with the most check marks.
- Vote three check marks for a favorite, two for the second favorite and one for the third favorite.

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

In the event of a tie, the deciding factor will be if the entry was of a book in a CBCS slab (only one book in the set needs to be graded; if multiple are cbcs graded then the highest grade applies). If both books are in a CBCS slab (or neither are) then the cover with the most three star votes wins. If they are still tied, then the one with the most 2 star votes wins. If the tie remains, then a sudden death contest will decide the winner. All tied contestants are to enter a new cover based upon the theme of that contest. At 9 pm EST, Friday, the cover with the most votes wins.

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

This week post covers whose art could not be contained on one standard cover; so post Wraparound covers, connecting covers, gatefolds, and horizontally oriented covers!

You can submit multiple books but only those with connected artwork. As far as the tiebreakers are concerned only one of the books need to be graded. If multiple are graded then the highest grade will be considered for tie-breaking

8 issues, 6 titles, 3 months, 1 great collage of multiple Spideys thru the years with his greatest original villains hanging out in the windows - my fav type of art, the more you look, the more you see. Fine work from Neil Adams.

It needs to be a comic. You can post a lithograph or poster to better show the connected art, but please post the actual comics alongside

@CatCovers looks like the spine is along the top, making it a horizontally oriented cover so it’s good
