What if you were different? 

So I hear you like comic books.

I mean, you're at this blog, right? So you have some predilection for them and some familiarity. Maybe you entered the GREAT LOSERS GIVEAWAY, and maybe you won a prize. Or maybe you didn't. And you're wondering... hey, man, those prizes were pretty good. Are you ever going to have another contest like that again?

Well, yes. Yes we are.




In conjunction with Shane Bailey, Kevin Melrose, Rick Geerling, Johnny Bacardi, AiT/PlanetLar, and Digital Webbing, there's a BRAND NEW CONTEST, focusing on the much-acclaimed and hard-to-find 12-part mini-series Demo. The prize list is absolutely staggering.

GRAND PRIZE: One copy each of the TPBs CHANNEL ZERO, PUBLIC DOMAIN, CHANNEL ZERO: JENNIE ONE, the two COURIER volumes, a CHANNEL ZERO t-shirt, issues #1-5 of DEMO, two pages of original art from PLANET OF THE CAPES, a six-issue subscription to DIGITAL WEBBING PRESENTS, and four back issues of DIGITAL WEBBING PRESENTS

SECOND PRIZE: One copy each of the TPBs CHANNEL ZERO, PUBLIC DOMAIN, CHANNEL ZERO: JENNIE ONE, the two COURIER volumes, a CHANNEL ZERO t-shirt, issues #1-5 of DEMO, and four back issues of DIGITAL WEBBING PRESENTS

THIRD PRIZE: CHANNEL ZERO: JENNIE ONE, issues #1-5 of DEMO, and four back issues of DIGITAL WEBBING PRESENTS

FOURTH PRIZE: Issues #1-5 of DEMO, and four back issues of DIGITAL WEBBING PRESENTS

FIFTH PRIZE: An issue of SCURVY DOGS, and four back issues of DIGITAL WEBBING PRESENTS

(Want to know more about a lot of these pieces of art? Then check out an interview with the artist of many of them, Becky Cloonan, over at Thought Balloons. Then take a look at the interview with DEMO writer Brian Wood, and DEMO publishers Larry Young and Mimi Rosenheim of AiT/PlanetLar.)

Wow.

Whadya gotta do to win all that swag? Easy. Just march yourself over here and tell us about having a superpower. That's right, pick one superpower, tell us why you want it, and what you'd do with it. You can be typical... I guess... and say stuff like invisibility and flight, but if you go the typical route you'd better really wow us with your reasons. We want weird, original, wild, CRAZY shit ("Skin made entirely of Nerf, so I can go bungee jumping without the bungee!") that sets you apart from the rest of the entrants.

Two rules:

1) The focus of this contest is to hook NEW readers into DEMO. We'd prefer you not already be a fan.

2) Contest ends THIS WEDNESDAY, May 12th. Get your entry in, and SPREAD THE WORD!

Well, what're you waiting for? ENTER HERE!

(Special thanks and consideration to Larry Young at AiT/PlanetLar and Digital Webbing for donating the prizes, and to Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan for their time. Give them some love, people.)
