Original Art Giveaway!

In my recent post, I’ve shared with you that Steve Bryant’s Athena Voltaire Compendium, a 224-page, $19.99 hardcover from Dark Horse / Pulp Sequentials, is available for pre-order during the month of August. I have seen this available for as low as 50% off by one of the online retailers, even when this book should be a must-buy even at the ridiculously-low cover price of $20!
Since the success of this book hinges so much on the preorders, I thought up of a little crazy competition that anyone can participate by preordering the book. The Prize is an original Athena Voltaire 11″x17″ art that I’d drawn back in 2010:
I’ll pay for the shipping of this to the winner’s address in Continental US.

How will the the Winner be determined? By most copies of Athena Voltaire Compendium pre-ordered by ONE individual! I did mention that this was a crazy idea, right?

To qualify, I need you to post on Twitter or Facebook or Google+ tagged with #AVCompendiumGiveAway, a snapshot of the proof (invoice or receipt) that shows the qty & your name. From now until midnight of 9/5, you can “up the ante” as many times as you want. If we have multiple entries at the highest count, I’ll do a random draw for the ultimate winner. The winner will be announced on Monday, 9/8 and the original art will be shipped to the winner after he/she sends in a photo confirmation of the books in possession. To make it fair, this contest is open only to individuals that purchased the books for personal use (it’ll make a great gift to family & friends!), not solely for resale. Please make sure you remove any personal info on the proof photos, and if you’d rather not post it online but still want to participate in the contest, please email me directly at junbobkim (at) gmail.com.

Also, because there’s already a person that has purchased 5 copies of the book, so technically, you need to have pre-ordered at least 5 copies to be in the running.

Good luck!!!

WINNER! Uncanny X-Men #114 Give-Away Contest

Well, I’m thrilled to share that my entry to xerox-kitty’s Uncanny X-Men #114 Give-Away Contest at Comic VineColossus X-Men Evolution Cover – was voted the winner! Here is her announcement:

Not only was the contest fun to participate, the community at Comic Vine seems to be very warm, welcoming. If you haven’t done so, I recommend checking out all the comic-related interests that Comic Vine has to offer.

P.S. – Below was the initial contest announcement by xerox-kitty:

CBI3 Round 3 Submission

Robert Kirkman’s Invincible script! With Ryan Ottley as the judge! I did enjoy how loose Kirkman’s script was. Here is what thread on Comic Book Resources forum with my submissions. You can follow up on some reactions and critics from the other Play-at-Homers.

CBI3 Round 1 Submission

Well, the 1st set of script was from Aspen… and it was a 3 pager of Fathom in action. Well, I was really depressed after not getting nominated… I almost didn’t participate in the “Play at Home” contest. At the last minute with regained hope, I drew up 3 pages of what I could. Here is what thread on Comic Book Resources forum with my submissions. You can follow up on some reactions and critics from the other Play-at-Homers.

Why did I do this to myself?

Oh, well… I guess I should have known. With over 190+ entries, I was NOT one of the ten (nor top 12 or so) selected to participate on CBI3. Kinda depressed… thought I really had some real chance this year. Gosh, this sucks… kinda sucks the will out of wanting to continue drawing. :( I guess I should have listened to Kevin Grevioux’s advice to just stay away from the contest. Shucks!

Comic Book Idol 3?

Well, the first one I missed the cutoff for nominations. The second, I was never considered for the nomination. I’m almost torn whether I need to try it again for the third contest much like the comic artist contest version of the TV’s American Idol. However, the free trip to New York Comic Con and a chance to get to meet some editors and pros alike was worth the effort, I’d figure… Here goes nothing.
