Rules: one cover from the “mainstream” (i.e. DC/Marvel) and one cover from the “indies” (i.e. anything NOT DC/Marvel).
I sort of broke the rules this week. But not really.
Let’s explain. This week I used Jeff Lemire’s gorgeous Trillium #1 from Vertigo for our mainstream corner on the technicality that it’s technically DC…this might have been okay, except for last week I did just the opposite, justifying that Vertigo counted as indie, so I could put up Nathan Fox’s Collider #1.
