    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!

    Poker Night at Ben's! In this climate of social distancing, who doesn’t miss large get togethers with friends to chill, play cards and have fun with each other?

    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!

    Ordinary and normal ain't always what it's cracked up to be.

    If you were walking through the park and saw two people you didn't know sitting on a park bench feeding the pigeons it would seem perfectly normal. About as much as it can be seeing that one of them has skin that looks like stone.

    It's the scene that matters, some leeway has to be given to those within it considering that we are dealing with Comic Book characters.

    I'm going to suggest an additional criteria. Think of it in terms of your own life, in terms of something that you might see, or experience, or enjoy doing, or just anything that is normal, common, ordinary. Think in terms of life after COVID.

    For example, the cover I posted evoked the image of walking through a park and seeing other people also enjoying the park on a nice day. No masks or social distancing.
