Weekly Cover Contest Week 97 - Shadowy Figures6810

Collector Helric1 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 (one book) 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 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.
- Don't vote early.

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.

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

Not a great "shadow" cover but it is the first one that I thought of....for longest time I thought my copy just had a smudge or stain before I realized it was a shadow cast over the fallen heroes.

I actually put a rule in stating that you can use the Shadow character but only if the art includes a shadow. So unless I'm not seeing it, this cover wouldn't count.
