    Default Cover contest 5/22-29: Lo there shall come a Game of Bang / some kind of ending.

    Yes, the month of May heralds the finish of many US TV shows. We've seen both Big Bang Theory and Game of Thrones bow out this last week and in recognition of these conclusions, this week's contest will feature endings or conclusions. Whether it's a last issue, the end of a storyline or the death of a character, it's cool.

    The Chaykin fanboy in me demands I recognize the final issue of American Flagg.



    And, as always, 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!

    The somewhat fourth-wall breaking message delivered in their last issue and appearance under the name, is both powerful and tragic, knowing the real world situation behind it.

    LOL Edit: changed a few times.

    Hmm… we had something similar not so long ago…

    So lets do something different: the last comics cover that HG Peter drew.

    "Go Down Swinging", the final battle between Spidey and the Goblin (at least for now anyway) and writer Dan Slott's swan song on Amazing Spider-Man!

    Since here in the U.S. it's Memorial Day this weekend, and June 6th of this year marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day, I think I'll go with something connected to the death of WWII characters from DC comics:

    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!
