The winners of Dr. No's Create Your Own DC New 52 Multiversity Cover Contest

Last month, Grant Morrison and DC Comics launched Multiversity, an exploration of the different Earths that make up the DC New 52 Multiverse. However, seven of those Earths were left open to future writers' creativity. With that in mind, we held a contest for our customers to use the Blank Cover Variant of Multiversity #1 to create their own DC New 52 Earth. The winner of the contest will receive a free copy of the remaining books in the Multiversity series. In addition, as a thank you to all of our amazing participants, the runner-ups will get a free copy of this week's Multiversity: The Society of Super-Heroes #1. And now on to our winner, The Eldritch League of America:

After the break, we had Charles, the talented artist of this cover, tell us a little about his inspiration:

The inspiration for the Eldritch League of America was, of course, the writings of horror author H.P. Lovecraft. What's interesting, from an idea standpoint, is that all three character names came to me at once as soon as I had the initial idea. Batman was a natural for a Nightgaunt. The DC Universe equivalent of Aquaman would have to be a Deep One. And the most powerful hero in the world, Superman, would wear the Elder Sign. As a life long fan of the DC Heroes and a long time admirer of Lovecraft, this mashup was a natural for me.

Of course, we had several other entries that were impressive and made our choice for the winner a difficult one. Here are the runner-ups:
The Society of Super Houses
The Pre-New 52 Hero-verse
The Society of TV Show Super-Heroes
The Justice Legos
