    Default Cover Contest Nov 13 - Nov 19, 2019: Show Me The Lute!

    I'm going to re-cycle a cover that I posted in a contest earlier this year:



    I really like it not just on account of Hal Foster's artwork (stunning, as always) but for the musical instrument shown in the center foreground. Foster's draftsmanship allows us to see the details, including those strings that are not attached to the fret board but that run above it, where they resonate in overtones to the plucked strings. Your assignment this week, then, is to pick a cover showing someone who is playing an acoustic stringed instrument, i.e., not an electric guitar. (To make it easier, let's allow covers in which someone else is playing an electric guitar, so long as someone is playing an actual acoustic guitar or other stringed instrument.) And as usual, here are:

    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!

    I was in Disneyland the other day and was missing the Country Bear Jamboree. So here's a little tribute:

    Every day is a gift, not a given right.
