    Default Cover Contest June 1 to June 7: Comic Book Noir

    First let's set a little mood music from the classic noir film Laura (1944)





    This week's category is to choose covers that illustrate a Comic Book Noir style, exemplified by having a moody feel, conflicted heroes, femme fatales, urban locations, crime plots and an overall sense of fatalism.

    Having said that, however you want to interpret the concept is entirely up to you, as long as you have fun.





    Now for some 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!

    I actually wrote them a letter about this issue that was published in #22.

    I couldn't help but honor the passing of a great creator. And it just shouts "noir".

    Go blue, go big.

    Additionally, this was my 666th post. Black Kiss. Seems like a perfect combination.

    The problem with using the Marvel Noir comics is the covers kinda sucked.
