Default CONTEST - Name that Comic!

haven't done one of my giveaway threads for quite a while so I think it's about time we do one

so here's the rules:

I will give a rather vague description of the cover art of a well known comic. By well known, I mean it will be a key issue that most anyone who is involved with comics would recognize.

You have to guess which comic it is.

First person to guess correctly will get a point.

First to 10 points wins!

Prize will be announced later.

You must have a minimum of 100 posts and 5 positive itrader to be eligible to play.

I'm at work so I may not post up another immediately after a guess is made so just keep checking back
