    Default Cover Contest, 1/30 to 2/5: I'm Losing My Mind

    Okay, here we go. Thanks all. Let's see what you can do with....

    I'm Losing My Mind


    This week we are going with characters that are losing it. Breakdowns, meltdowns, freakouts, as long as they are NOT NORMAL for the character. (Like, say, for the Joker or Ambush Bug being crazy is normal; for the Punisher or Lobo, having a fit of rage is normal. So those wouldn't count.)



    Boilerplate:

    1) Post One (& ONLY ONE) Cover that fits the theme of this Week's Contest!
    2) Cover must be from a Published Comic Book or Collected Volume!
    3) Covers must be Posted before Voting Begins!
    4) Voting Begins 12 AM Tuesday and Runs Until 12 AM Wednesday PST (3 AM EST)!
    5) Vote by Posting the name in BOLD of the Poster whose cover best fits the theme or that you simply like the most! A vote need not be in bold, but it does make it easier to Count-The-Votes!
    6) The Winner of the Contest is the Entry with the MOST Votes after the Voting-Period!
    7) It's Okay to Discuss the Covers but if you Think Someone's Entry Doesn't Fit the Theme or Violates the Rules, you Don't need to Argue it in the thread, Simply Don't Vote for It!
    8) Plus: Occasionally Voting will Result in a Tie! The Person Who Started the Thread will do the Counting that Week will Usually call for a TIE-Breaking --Vote from Someone who has Not Yet Voted!
    9) AFTER the Tie-Breaker Vote, Voting Ends and the Winner is Declared by The One Who Started the Thread (or assigned surrogate) and Thus will do the Counting.
    10) Have fun!

    Sometimes, you just lose yourself and give up

    My entry this week could have worked well for a previous contest, but I'm not telling you which one.

    TRUTH, JUSTICE, HOPE
    That is, the heritage of the Kryptonian Warrior: Kal-El, son of Jor-El

    If a "normal" character's going crazy is an example of "losing it", then does it count if Jack Napier goes the other way?

    Of course, Dr. Faustus is involved in this . . .

    Dali, via Steranko



    And the original art

    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    "I should describe my known nature as tripartite, my interests consisting of three parallel and disassociated groups; a) love of the strange and the fantastic, b) love of abstract truth and scientific logic, c) love of the ancient and the permanent. Sundry combinations of these strains will probably account for my...odd tastes, and eccentricities."

    I'm okay with it, seismic. There's one other Joker cover out there I thought we might see yet. But the idea is to have fun, I don't want to rules-lawyer things.
