    Default Cover Contest June 12 to June 18: Cars!

    When I was a kid, I loved cars. I knew practically all the (at least American) makes and models, I loved Matchbox cars and, when they were introduced in 1967, Hot Wheels! (And does anybody else remember the old Tootsie Toy metal cars?)
    And perhaps my favorite cartoon show as a kid was . . . Wacky Races!

    So, for this week, I propose the simple idea of covers with cars!
    They can be realistic automobiles, or even something like talking cartoon jalopies.
    Two examples below (of issues I remember as a kid):


    a beautiful Alex Toth cover from 1970


    Boy, was this a dumb one!

    Now, the stuff that in some places would normally be included in small-print:
    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!

    Did I leave anything out?

    When I was a kid, I liked cars -- and dinosaurs too.

    I think this contest has already been decided, but I'll drive off into the deep end…

    The action on the cover flows into the first page of the story

    Dang my choices get chosen already! (Fantasticar and Spider-Mobile.) So instead here is everyone's favorite ghostbusting car.
