    Default Cover Contest, 2/6 to 8/6/2021: Circles Within Circles!

    Press Play:




    A common design trope in comic book covers are Circles within Circles.
    They are used to depict various themes such as hypnosis, psychedelics or time-travel. They can even just be headshots of different characters.
    So, delve into those long boxes and see what strange, trippy examples you can find.
    As always, feel free to stretch the concept as far as you like, just have fun!





    And now for some Rules from our sponsors:

    1) Post One (& ONLY ONE) Cover that fits the theme of this Week's Contest!
    2) You NOT talk about Fight Club!
    3) Covers must be Posted before Voting Begins!
    4) Voting Begins 12 AM Tuesday PST 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!

    Round like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
    Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel
    Like a snowball down a mountain, or a carnival balloon
    Like a carousel that's turning running rings around the moon
    Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face
    And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space
    Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind!

    For me, concentric circles mean time travel… A vintage cover by Gillon:

    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!
