    Default CBR Cover Contest: Measure This! - Oct. 26th to Nov. 1

    With all the polls being published about the upcoming Presidential election, and with all the television weathermen making predictions for the coming winter, I thought this would be a good time to consider "metrology" - the art of measurement. So,

    MEASURE THIS!
    Covers showing measuring devices, such as rulers or yard sticks (meter sticks, for you non-USA'ers!), bathroom scales, thermometers, pressure gauges, etc. That includes a lot of types of devices, so there's a huge variety of covers to choose from.

    For example:




    COVER CONTEST CANON (aka THE RULES):

    * Post One (& 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 11/02 and Runs Until 12 AM Wednesday 11/03 PST (3 AM EST)!
    * 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!
    * The Winner of the Contest is the Entry 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!
    * Occasionally Voting will Result in a Tie! The Person Who Started the Thread and Thus will do the Counting that Week will Usually call for a TIE-Breaking Vote from Someone who has Not Yet Voted!
    * 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!

    A classic cover, certainly.

    I prefer the covers that made reference to Lotta's strength, rather than weight or eating.

    Very cool theme! Had a tough time thinking of a cover but found one that has more than a few different measuring devices...

    Get out your measuring cups and we'll play a new game
    Come to the front of the class and we'll measure your brain
    We'll give you a complex and we'll give it a name




    I figure there will be a lot of scales, so I thought I'd go with a ruler.
