    Default Cover Contest July 3-9: Where the Heart is

    This week's theme is HOME. Since a certain young wallcrawler is far from it this week, I thought we could share covers that feature some character's home. However you choose to interpret that-- home away from home, actual house, sliding into home, whatever.



    Now for those wacky, zany rules:

    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 most famous home in the Marvel Universe.



    And here is Kirby's diagram.

    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!

    The Ivy shelters orphans
    Deep in Robinson Park
    And now she cares for the Holly so
    And helps her with her larks

    «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])

    I wanted an outside shot, but I think this shot works better.

    I think restorative nostalgia is the number one issue with comic book fans.
    A fine distinction between two types of Nostalgia:

    Reflective Nostalgia allows us to savor our memories but accepts that they are in the past
    Restorative Nostalgia pushes back against the here and now, keeping us stuck trying to relive our glory days.

    Even wanderers should be allowed to feel at home on occasion.

    Combining my ideas for Poe's 'Fall of the House of Usher' and 'Tell-Tale Heart'... Home is where the heart is!

    I'm like... Reed's the smartest man on Earth... he has to know it's a carcinogen... Reed Richards is trying to give his brother-in-law cancer. It's canon.
