    Default CBR Cover Contest 3/16-3/22: It's Raining, It's Pouring

    The snow is melting, the mercury is rising, the flowers are pushing up through the dirt...it's springtime! And with springtime comes a seemingly endless supply of rain, from torrential downpours to sun showers and everything in between.

    In honour of this wet weather, the topic of this week's Cover Contest is....It's Raining, It's Pouring!
    (Alternately: The Rain Rain Rain Came Down Down Down or (Metaphorical) Cats and Dogs)

    For example:




    Cover Contest Weekly Posted 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 don't think Ardian Syaf is appreciated enough. I like how this cover feels 3-D, like it is going to jump right out at you.

    I love those, Abe. The splash page (splash , rain see what I did there ) with Ben from the famed FF #51 issue was the first image that came to my head.

    OK... I know already that it's gonna be incredibly hard to choose at the end of the week...

    @Jeanvaljean : What is that crazy cover !?! Every week I realize even more that DC is in fact a surrealist company...

    @Iron Maiden : Doom 2099 !!! And I must add here that, of course, I only know the Deodato homage because you posted it on CBR not so long ago...

    Abe, wish that was a cover too, it would win IMO.

    Kirby surpassed himself in this issue. At least three splah pages are absolute masterpieces if we add the crossroad to infinity and the crazy machine built by Reed to enter into the Neg-Zone...
