Weekly Cover Contest - Pedal Power - Get on Your Bikes and Ride!13480

TRA LA LA esaravo private msg quote post Address this user
Do you know what time it is? It's time for a new contest topic!

The rules:
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.

The list of previous contests and winners can be found in a pinned thread on the top of the forum.

Please No Early Voting

Did you ever get a song stuck in your head? Well the theme for this week's cover contest is Pedal Power - Get on Your Bikes and Ride! So you can probably guess what Queen song I have been thinking about. Let's see covers with classic Schwinn and Columbia bicycles, 10-speeds, 3-speeds with banana seats, unicycles, tricycles, bicycles built for two, etc. You can even post covers with scooters if you want, but NO motorcycles - that was Week #58 (but I would love to see a bicycle with motorcycle-style handlebars).

It was worth looking up a cover just to read a couple articles about this one.

Looks like you can read them on the Phoenix city website https://www.phoenix.gov/streetssite/Pages/Graphic-Novels.aspx

@rgreenson - That doesn't appear to be PEDAL or FOOT-POWERED.
