Classic Cover Contest: 15 June 2022 to 21 June 2022: My Beautiful Balloon
Thanks everyone for a great contest! Loved seeing those Giants. Special thanks to Edo, mrp, Dubip, and chaykin for the votes for that one-of-a-kind Charlie Armentano cover!
This week, let's make it a bit tricky: >Post a great cover that includes just one word balloon. Maybe it's called a speech balloon/speech bubble/dialogue balloon. Anyway, someone/a character is speaking words aloud. Not a thought bubble (or whatever you call it)... a spoken word balloon.
>So, only one word balloon AND that word balloon needs to contain more than 2 words (so, Avengers #16 is not eligible--sorry!).
The Cover Contest Constitution: -Post one, and only one, classic cover that fits the theme of the contest. -Cover must be from a published comic book or collected volume published before June 2012. -Please include the title and the issue number of the comic in case some posters cannot see your image. -Covers must be posted before voting begins. -Voting takes place on Tuesday, 21 June 2022, beginning at 12:01am PST and ending at 11:59am PST. -Vote by posting the name of the poster whose cover best fits the theme or that you simply like the most. -Put the name of your choice in bold. -The winner of the contest is the entrant with the most votes after the voting period ends. -The winner chooses the theme for the next week's contest.
Play nice: -If you don't think the cover fits the theme, don't vote for it; please don't post disparaging remarks about it. -If a cover is more recent than the classic time frame, kindly point it out to the poster, who may then choose an alternate before voting begins.
Good luck, everyone. I hope you enjoy the contest!
Here's my example--sure, there blurbs and the like, but there's only one speech balloon.
