    Default A Bleeding Cool Challenge - The DC Gatefold Covers



    Internally they were called "Holy Shit!" covers. In an interview, Bobbie Chase referred to them as "What The F" covers. The solicitations for April called them "gatefold covers". In April, all the DC new 52 comics will have a surprise, secret, cover reveal, giving away something happening in that month's comic. Indeed it was such a surprise that sometimes not even the writer knew when they were writing the comic.

    But that does give us the opportunity to come up with our own ideas.

    Consider this a Bleeding Cool Challenge! Create your own second half of the gatefold cover to any of the comics solicited in April. It can be satirical, it can be straight, but it must be surprising.

    Artistic talent is not necessary, the idea is always more important than anything. Just give it a go... and then send it in. We'll run them all on Monday - at least those that don't break guidlines over obscenity and/or nudity.

    And you can guarantee that everyone at DC will see them...

    I don't get Rich's drawing. Dan DiDio is threatening to... not use Nightwing for more than a year?!?

    It was Didio i think that wanted to kill off Nightwing in the first place (I think) this is just his opportunity to finish what he started.

    Yeah, but he didn't want to kill Steph off. I don't get this.

    I'm lousy at drawing, and I don't have a scanner.

    Thumbs up

    Rich are you just assuming that we're all artists? Because there is artistry needed here -- even if you said there isn't.

    Is Rich going to pay artists for their work, or are they expected to give it up for free?
    Think of the click-benny's!
