::edit::

Removed the interview series covers, to de-clutter. Also my B&W Trilogy, Answer, Timmy, Tribe, and TGIF covers. Plenty of me to go around without all those B-sides.

Also removed the B-Side version of Spencer Bingham's Doubleheader XII cover [it was a quick photo'chop I made, should not distract from the original].


::note::

DARP covers created this year are not included in vote, to keep things from getting confusing. There have been some excellent efforts, but they will be honored another way.

Gawd, some of this art is just FANTASTIC. It really doesn't get the credit it deserves at these small sizes.

It was tough to reduce it to 5.

307 Unbelief by Oskar Kunik
305 Testimony Before an Emergency Session of The Naval Cephalopod Command by Bo Kaier
300 Bloodchild by Soren James
