    Default COVER CONTEST November 23-29: Not Your Grandfather's Fairy Tale

    This year sees the release of not one, but two retellings of Carlo Collodi's classic tale Pinocchio. We have Disney's version directed by Robert Zemeckis, and Netflix's version by Guillermo del Toro. So with that in mind, this week's Cover Contest is about retellings of children's stories or fairy tales (the latter of which isn't always intended for children).



    Here are the usual RULES:
    1) Post One (& ONLY ONE) Cover that fits the theme of this Week's Contest!
    2) Covers 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 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!

    MRP stole my cover. By posting it hours before. I was tempted to bring out Rex the Wonder dog does Jungle book cover in retaliation, but I relented and decided on this one.

    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.
