    I don't think we've done this one, and I thought it might be fun. This week's contest --

    DRIVE!


    Anything featuring a character behind the wheel of a motor vehicle. So sailboats, hang gliders, skateboards, surfboards, etc., are out. Gotta be something with an engine, and we have to see who's driving.



    Okay? Have at it.Enjoy.

    Boilerplate:

    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 and Runs Until 12 AM Wednesday 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!

    Plus:
    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!

    You can find a bunch of books I wrote stories for here. The weekly column is here.

    Driving that Kirby contraption.

    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Jidéhem (as JDM for Jean De Mesmaeker, a name well known by the happy readers of Gaston Lagaffe, which featured a caricature of his own father) was a collaborator of the great Franquin on Gaston and Spirou : his inker, and the one who used to draw the backgrounds. He created also one of the first female heroine of the Franco-Belgium comics : Sophie.


    He used to draw and write chronicles about cars in Le Journal de Spirou too, featuring the character Starter. Sophie made her debuts there. Here is the cover of a recent digest of his chronicles :



    But it can't be a valid entry for the contest. So here is one that fits the theme : the cover of Le Journal de Spirou n°1596 (14 nov 1968 - a weekly magazine).



    Sophie is in the car : it's an intelligent car named Zoé - and "she" is Sophie's friend of course.


    Jidéhem passed away last week, the 30th of April. He was 81 years old. RIP.

    So, I wanted to use the cover with Atom stuck on a spinning tire. Classic, typical Ray Palmer situation. But then I see...
