    Default COVER CONTEST 21 Dec to 28 Dec: The Old Magic

    This one evolved...!

    For a while I've thought if I ever won a CBR cover contest I'd post one of my favourite ever covers: JLA Primeval, and have the theme of 'Cave Art'.
    But since my 'week' has fallen on Christmas time I feel somewhat obliged to honour this.
    It's long been acknowledged by historians that our Dec 25th date for Jesus' birthday is likely to be out of whack (with March being more historically likely) and there's a popular theory that ancient Pagan festivals, such as Saturnalia, 'morphed' into what we now call Christmas (that's an over-simplification, but whaddayawant?). Throw in Santa Claus and his roots in ancient folklore and we begin to see that the Old Magic is still represented in one form or another.
    I figured I'd post the same JLA cover, but adapt the theme to suit: COVERS WITH THE 'OLD MAGIC' OR LEGENDS FROM TIMES GONE BY.... I also think that suits my entry with the mythos of the JLA in cave art form...



    THE CUT AND PASTED RULEBOOK:

    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 12/20 and Runs Until 12 AM Wednesday 12/1214 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!

    Hope you enjoy this theme! Looking forward to seeing where you go with it :-)

    I think this one by the King counts



    Since we are doing the lyrics thing, a little Fleetwood Mac.

    "!They say there's a place down in Mexico
    Where a man can fly over mountains and hills
    And he don't need an airplane or some kind of engine
    And he never will
    Now you know it's a meaningless question
    To ask if those stories are right
    'Cause what matters most if the feeling
    You get when you're hypnotized"

    Hercules, hero of song and story.
    Hercules, winner of ancient glory.
    Fighting for the right,
    Fighting with his might,
    With the strength of ten, ordinary men.
    Hercules, people are safe when near him.
    Hercules, only the evil fear him.
    Softness in his eyes,
    Iron in his thighs,
    Virtue in his heart,
    Fire in every part,
    Of the Mighty Hercules.


    A bat! That's it! It's an omen.. I'll shall become a bat!

    I was originally going to use a Thor cover with Odin on it because Santa Claus was modeled after him, but then I remembered this fun miniseries Morrison did earlier this year and thought it was perfect for this weeks contest.
