-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.
All rights reserved. Void where prohibited. Contest comes with no warranty express or implied. Management does not condemn or condone the contents of any cover.
Gosh, I haven't played the cover game since...I don't know when. Definitely a good two or three years I would think, but probably more. Anyway, I think I'll give it a shot again.
The way I always used to play this game was that I was only allowed to post a comic cover from my own collection (whether I own that particular issue as a single floppy or as part of a TPB). This a) keeps it challenging and b) helps me to familiarise myself with the covers in my collection. So, somewhat predictably, I'm in with a cover from Marvel's Star Wars comic, featuring not just a robot, but a whole darn world full of 'em!
