Many thanks everyone and sorry for the delay in getting a new contest up...
For this next cover contest I thought I'd go with the theme of Sea Monsters. It seems like a nice broad topic with lots of classic covers to choose from. As for definition of sea monster lets count as valid any fantastical creature of the sea. Obviously krakens are in, but so are giant octopuses and the like. Let's leave out actual sea creatures, even if it be say a killer shark. The idea here is to present the truly fantastic.
I'll copy here the tried and true rules that hoary tradition as laid out for us:
-Post one, and only one, classic cover that fits the theme of the contest.
-Cover must be from a published comic book or collected volume published before Jan 1 2004 (this is a classics comic forum and we voted 10 years as the unofficial standard for being a classic).
-Covers must be posted before voting begins.
-Voting runs from 12 AM PST Tuesday until 12 AM Wednesday PST.
-Vote by posting the name of the poster whose cover best fits the theme or that you simply like the most.
Put the name in bold.
-The winner of the contest is the entrant with the most votes after the voting period ends.
The winner chooses the theme for the next week's contest.
-If you don't think the cover fits the theme, don't vote for it, don't post disparaging remarks about it. If a cover is more recent that the Classic time frame, kindly point it out and the poster can choose an alternate before voting begins.
