Weekly Cover Contest 101 - There is No Eye in Team7041

COLLECTOR drchaos 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.

For this week you must choose a cover featuring a team where at least one character on the team is missing an eye. The team can be anything, super heroes, villains, pirates, etc.

No individuals, its gotta be a team on the cover.

If there were a comic book featuring the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad it would be an example of what I am looking for:

I was actually going to go with Morlocks but despite all of the interior pages the only covers I saw with Callisto had her going one on one with Storm.

There have to be some cool pirate covers out there somewhere.

Well, we know who is going to win the "worst picture ever" award. And we know who is going to win the "whoops, didn't know what missing an eye meant" award.

Now, it is just deciding who gets the "Best Nick Team Cover" award.
