Weekly Cover Contest #334 - They call me Mellow YELLOW!19019

TRA LA LA esaravo private msg quote post Address this user
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!!! However... DO NOT VOTE EARLY!!! (Read on!)

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.
- Voting begins Wednesday at 12 noon EST which is the cutoff for submissions.
- Voting ends Thursday at 11:59 PM EST.
- Please vote through the built-in "three check marks" system described above.
- 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**

This week's contest is - They call me Mellow YELLOW!

It's pretty difficult to come up with a NEW theme after over SIX YEARS of contests, but looking at the responses to voting for last week's contest, I thought about a line from a Frank Zappa song that mentions yellow snow. So for this week, show a cover with a nice bright YELLOW background, or a cover that is mostly yellow in composition. Yes, this is another song reference, but if you remember this one, you must be as old as I am! There is no shortage of appropriate covers, so EVERYONE that reads this should post a cover.
