    Default Cover Contest July 22-28 - SLAP HAPPY

    Been reading some older (1950s) detective stories lately and there's a lot of this in them, which is why it bubbled up to the top as a theme idea.

    SLAP HAPPY, or YOU CAD!

    Which is to say, an angry woman letting a man have it across the chops. Or a man and a woman. Or a man and a man. Or a woman and a woman. Or a bunny and a dog. Or, you know, whoever. But mid-conversation, NOT a superhero fight scene.



    THE RULES:
    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 PST.
    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.
    Most importantly please remember that we're here to have fun. Enjoy!

    Perhaps even more classic. But terribly offensive. Sorry for that - different times...

    I suspect there will be lots of offensive ones this time out. The culture shock is one of the reasons I thought it might be fun.

    if it helps, some of the covers thus far helpfully offer a "slap" sound effect

    I searched through hundreds of covers, and could only find the next best thing.

    I think I'm out this week. I can't find anything to my liking.
