    Default COVER CONTEST July 31st - Aug 6th - Awesome Alliteration

    The cover must feature a character whose first and last names start with the same let of the alphabet. Now I know there aren’t many charcaters like that in comic books [cue laugh track here], but I’m sure you can come up with someone.
    On the chance there are two or more characters with alliterative initials on the cover, please identify who you are referring to. In my excellent example, I am using Peter Potamus and not So-so the monkey.
    Fun will be had be all.


    THE RULES:

    Post one (and only one) cover that fits the theme of this week's contest.
    Cover must be from a published comic book or collected volume.
    Covers must be posted before voting begins.
    It's ok to vote for the OP if you like their cover.
    Voting begins 12 AM Tuesday and runs until 12 AM Wednesday PST.
    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 tally votes.
    The winner of the contest is the entrant with the most votes after the voting period.
    It's okay to discuss the covers but if you think someone's entry doesn't fit the theme or violates the rules don't argue it in the thread - simply don't vote for it.
    Occasionally voting will result in a tie, in which case a tie breaking vote will be required from someone who has not yet voted.

    More importantly, remember that we're here to have fun. Enjoy!

    Pedantic poet here: do you follow strict a strict alphabetical view of alliteration, or the phonetic view where what matters is sound equivalance at stressed syllables, or go all-in on Old Norse poetry rules of alliteration?

    (I don't recommend the Old Norse poetry rules for alliteration. The rules for those were arcane and depended on no little knowledge of historical linguistics already in the 12th century.)

    Phonetics do not count. Current English language and the actual letters used would be the rule. I am ashamed to admit I thought about this.

    I would be willing to bend to the Norse rules IF AND ONLY IF it's a Walt Simonson cover.

    Matt Murdock posing as his twin brother Mike Murdock. Who is Dare Devil (OK, I know that's one word. )

    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!

    Clearly my alliterative character choice is the T-Rex whom I have named Farina F. Flooferfunster.

    ...prove me wrong.

    This cover makes me happy, so I am using it:



    Oh damn, which one! Um - lets go with Lana Lang, no Lois Lane, no!

    Ok its Baby Lois Lane with the block in the living room.
