    Default Cover Contest 11/6-11/12/19 A Salute to Service

    Yes it happened again, I won and select the topic for a week with a US national holiday, this time Veteran's Day (formerly Armistice Day). So in keeping with the occasion, I will tailor the theme to the holiday again...

    So this week's topic is A Salute to Service: choose a cover that depicts members of the armed forces. No space wars, super-heroes at war, etc. but rather rank and file members of the armed forces who serve their country (officers are acceptable as well).


    For my choice, I am selecting Sam Glanzman's A Sailor's Story GN...






    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!

    Comic fans get the comics their buying habits deserve.

    Well, how'd you do, Private William McBride?
    Do you mind if I sit here down by your graveside?
    I'll rest here awhile in the warm summer sun,
    I've been walking all day, Lord, and I'm nearly done.
    And I see by your gravestone you were only 19
    When you joined the glorious fallen in 1916--
    Well, I hope you died quick and I hope you died clean,
    Or, Willie McBride, was it slow and obscene?

    One of the most iconic images of all-time:

    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!
