    Default Cover Contest, 1/13/21 to 1/19/21: Games People Play!

    It's time to have some fun with this week's contest:

    GAMES PEOPLE PLAY!

    In honor of legendary Jeopardy host Alex Trebek who passed away late last year, let’s make this contest about comic book characters playing games! They can be sports games, board games, card games, games of chance, playground games, computer games, being on game shows, you name it, they just have to be playing a game!



    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 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.

    Brave & Bold 49

    (I'm not sure what game they are playing, I've never seen a baseball game where someone slides into a base half way up the base line from foul territory before, but it looks like baseball. But who knows in a world where gorilla splay sports...)

    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!

    These are two spash pages I thought of, too bad they weren't covers.

    Fantasic Four #54 Wyatt Wingfoot at the plate.


    And this panel from X-Men Annual #7



    I apologize for the image I posted earlier from a piracy site.
