COLLECTOR DarthLego private msg quote post Address this user
A theme will be chosen each week, so 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.
- The book does not have to be in your collection.
- Variants and sketch covers 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 "Thumbs Up" system. One vote per person.

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

- In the event of a tie, the deciding factor will be if your photo was of a book in a CBCS slab. If both books are not in a CBCS slab then there will be a sudden death tie breaker overtime submission by both contestants.

Anybody can google a photo or book. I think the book should have to be in your collection.

Sounds good in theory, in reality JWKyle's Longbox would win every week.

I actually agree - I've only ever submitted books that I have in my collection. I don't however generally pull the book out and scan it, I google and find a decent image of the cover.

That said, this is all about cool covers I think, making it a rule that it has to be in your collection *and* be a picture/scan of your actual book would take away from the easy fun, with no real value in return on the additional asspain factor... just my perspective anyway

Adding additional rules in the contest has been shown to confuse people and lower the amount of entries. Nevertheless if you want to make it a book out of your collection, we all post in a CBCS forum, why not go the extra step and say it has to be a CBCS slabbed book too? I'm sure you can see that would really limit the amount of entries unless the themes were really vague and that would cause people to loose interest.

I agree with the following thoughts...

I have to agree, not limiting to books in peoples' collections increases the number of entrants and the submission pool. A large part of the fun with these is the amount of participation and the variety that that brings

I think adding any other permanent rules than there currently are would be a hindrance. I'm amazed we have kept the contest going uninterrupted for 39 straight weeks. There is of course still the ability of each winner to set whatever additional stipulations they want on their particular theme, but as @Towmater said, more often than not it has just served to confuse people.

P.S. We still haven't solved the early voting problem.
