COLLECTOR DarthLego private msg quote post Address this user
A theme will be chosen each week, participants must find a comic book cover that fits the theme.

- One entry per person.
- Must be a real comic book in circulation.
- Magazine size books are also okay.

Each week we will vote on who had the best cover.

- Friday begins the new contest.

Week 24 - Master of Evil/The Villain




A Villain (also known as the "antagonist", "baddie", "bad guy", "heavy" or "black hat" ) is an "evil" character in a story, whether a historical narrative or, especially, a work of fiction.

The Villain usually is the antagonist (though can be the protagonist), the character who tends to have a negative effect on other characters. A female villain is occasionally called a villainess. Random House Unabridged Dictionary defines villain as "a cruelly malicious person who is involved in or devoted to wickedness or crime; scoundrel; or a character in a play, novel, or the like, who constitutes an important evil agency in the plot".




The Week 24 theme is dedicated to my favorite big baddie, Darth Vader. To honor the Dark Lord of the Sith you shall hereby go forth and submit your best comic covers featuring one of your favorite villians.

@DertyComix Oh snap, so that's the book that inspired Tyler Kirkham's Venom #3 cover.

I remember seeing that commission - it's truly amazing. How do you display such a thing? It certainly deserves a frame.

Yeah, I don't think the series made big waves. I've been meaning to get it, and when I saw that picture (I was looking for a Red Skull on a Cap comic) I had to post it!! I also went directly to eBay and ordered the set - 5 comics. All the cover artwork for the series is pretty awesome in my mind.

It's slabbed so until CBCS makes a double-wide holder I only get to see half of it at a time

It's great that you have the single image, then - is it high-res enough to make a nice print of it maybe?

Yes! And I've decided to just embrace my crack addiction with my cover contest covers lately, and get high immediately

Extra thanks to @DarthLego for the great theme this week, I'm going to enjoy owning this one 👍🏻

Edit: yep this guy was motivated to negotiate. Gotta love the best offer feature
