    Default Cover Contest May 1 to May 7: I think I got on the wrong Train.

    Trains and/or passengers in peril.

    Inspired by my daily train ride to and from work. Let's see some trains you would not want to be a passenger on, trains being mangled or derailed, or wild train rides of any kind.



    THE RULES:
    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!

    By the way, do subway trains and/or monorails count for the purposes of this theme?

    Sure, anything that normally runs on rails/train tracks.

    «Speaking generally, it is because of the desire of the tragic poets for the marvellous that so varied and inconsistent an account of Medea has been given out» (Diodorus Siculus, The Library of History [4.56.1])

    These are the times that try men's souls
    In the course of our nation's history the people of Boston have rallied bravely whenever the rights of men have been threatened
    Today a new crisis has arisen
    The Metropolitan Transit Authority, better known as the M.T.A.
    Is attempting to levy a burdensome tax on the population in the form of a subway fare increase
    Citizens, hear me out, this could happen to you!

    (although looking it up Miyazawa's Night on the Galactic Railroad pretty well predates them.)
