    Default Cover Contest 2020/06/24 to 2020/06/30: All around the World

    Let's get the rules out of the way via a little copy-and-paste.

    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, Graphic Novel, 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)! (This is in US time)
    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!

    Since travelling has become a rare thing these days, I thought it might be a good theme for us to explore on the covers of our beloved comic books.

    Any cover showing a character far from their home turf.

    Here is my own entry:
    For, he reasons pointedly / That which must not, can not be. - Christian Morgenstern

    I believe Tara Reade.

    OK, this is NOT an entry, because it's not a comic book cover. What it is, is the cover art for a Finnish progressive rock concept album that was inspired by a comic book, namely Don Rosa's The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck. Rosa drew a special cover for the record album, and even though it's not an entry I want to post it anyway, because it so well fits the theme, and because... well, just look at it.

    I'm going to be contrary and push the envelope as this is a location (the bridge) I passed over today and shall pass under tomorrow. The alien dude (dudette?) is far from their home turf, though.



    and what the bridge used to look like before it was redone a few years ago.

    Honestly I can't even imagine this kind of a comic being done today.

    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.
