    Default Cover Contest April 22 - April 28 - Passing Fads!

    This week's theme is:

    Passing Fads!

    Covers that feature things so dated, and quickly outdated, that you can guess their publication date within a year and maybe within a month just by looking at the art. Like Jughead's new haircut!



    Rules & Conditions (read this before posting):

    Post one (and only one) cover that fits the theme of this week's contest.
    Cover must be from a published comic book or collected volume.
    Covers must be posted before voting begins.
    Voting begins 12 AM Tuesday and runs until 12 AM Wednesday PDT.
    Vote by posting the name in bold of the poster whose cover best fits the theme or that you simply like the most.
    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, you don't need to argue it in the thread. Simply don't vote for it. This is a no whining, no complaining, no drama zone.

    How about a fad from days of comics past? The (n)ever popular...Platinum Edition!

    Hope is not lost today. It is found.

    I still think it's a fine costume, but, yeah, dated before it even came out.

    Was the dark of the moon on the sixth of June
    In a Kenworth pullin' logs
    Cab-over Pete with a reefer on
    And a Jimmy haulin' hogs
    We is headin' for bear on I-one-oh
    'Bout a mile outta Shaky Town
    I says, "Pig Pen, this here's the Rubber Duck.
    "And I'm about to put the hammer down.


    For a brief time in the mid to late 70s, comics tried to cash in on the C.B. radio craze (kids, ask your parents). Only in that brief period would you ever get a cover like this:
