Here's an idea for a cover. The Welcome Back Kotter Sweathogs(DC TV Comic) meet The Future Foundation Class (Marvel).

@Carycomic: Close...but no cigar.

Which raises the question; with air pollution laws being what they are, do they even still offer cigars, as prizes, for ringing the high bell at carnivals?
