    Default Cover Contest for 8-10 to 8-17 seems sketchy...

    Hi, all! Thank you so much for the votes! This week, I was thinking we could post favorite sketch covers (a.k.a. the blank covers of comics made for cons and such where artists draw directly on them).

    This one seems to be drawn and signed by the late, great performer of Big Bird and Oscar, Carroll Spinney.

    The rules for those who don't know.
    Post one (and only one) cover that fits the theme of this week's contest.
    Cover must be from a published comic book, collected volume or graphic novel.
    Covers must be posted before voting begins.
    Voting begins 12 AM Tuesday and runs until 12 AM Wednesday PST.
    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 tally votes.
    The winner of the contest is the entrant with the most votes after the voting period.
    It's okay to discuss the covers but if you think someone's entry doesn't fit the theme or violates the rules don't argue it in the thread - simply don't vote for it.
    Most importantly, remember that we're here to have fun. Enjoy!

    Sabrina as the Scarlet Witch done by Dan Parent. Had this done at Gem City Comic Con in 2014? I think.

    Not usually known for his art work, Jonathan Hickman did this sketch for me at C2E2 in 2015 . I'd met him there at there very first one and several times since then.

    A sudden move
    The stride of a cheetah
    The sound of a drum beater
    Woman to woman, breast to breast
    If you want the rest check the artist's sketch


    This one comes from my personal collection, and is by Marcelo Baez.

    There are an awful lot of these covers from this Cho…

    I thought this one by Ken Lashley was pretty cool.

    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!

    How about a nice, sexy duck? Sketchy!

    Maybe I should change my entry? The others look like they are done for selling on line, etc. Mine was done on the fly so to speak at the con.
