I checked the Topics list and here's something we haven't done before: boxers! The fighting kind, with those big gloves (not boxers the dog breed). It can be human boxers, funny animal animal boxers, robot boxers, ghost boxers, etc.; as long as there's clearly at least one boxer (or some boxing paraphernalia) on the cover.
I'll get the predictable one out of the way and post this cover (what a surprise, huh?! ). I'm looking forward to seeing some very interesting, unusual, and imaginative covers!
The Cover Contest Constitution: - 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 12 October 2011. - Please include also the title and the issue number of the comic in case some posters cannot see your image. - Covers must be posted before voting begins. - Voting takes place on Tuesday, 19 October 2021, beginning at 12:01am PST and ending at 11:59am 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 of your choice 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; please don't post disparaging remarks about it. - If a cover is more recent than the classic time frame, kindly point it out to the poster, who may then choose an alternate before voting begins. - Have fun!
Farrar, I'm pretty sure your example cover would have been damn near everybody's go-to cover. I'm also surprised that this theme hasn't been done before, given how frequently boxers and boxing-related imagery appears on comic-book covers. Anyway...
