read/RANT Banner Contest (free comics)

readrantFirst – and the grand prize – will go to whoever creates a winning banner!  PLUS prize details and future (lame) competitions coming up!

Details inside…

So this is the first competition.  Why?  Well as much as I like the current banner at the top of the page with Hal and Ollie, its been around for quite some time and I just think its time for a change.  Plus, this is the only real skill based competition I could think up sadly.  How you enter:

  1. Make a 750 x 140 (or very close) banner
  2. Must include read/RANT in it and contain nothing illegal or obscene
  3. All submissions must be e-mailed to by July 10th (three weeks from today)
  4. Please include your name – or internet nickname – with the submission, as well as e-mail address you wish to have us contact you at.
  5. All work submitted implies you have rights to freely use the submitted image and that you are granting unlimited free usage rights to read/RANT (ie: don’t try to bill us afterwards or anything)
  6. NEW!  You may submit up to 3 pieces!

What does the grand prize consist of?  Your choice of the free set of comics!  Or, depending on how many issues a set has, TWO!  Possible prizes may include some of the following

  • Avengers Vs. X-Men and many AvX tie-ins
  • Ultimate Comics United We Stand/Divided We Fall Spider-Man and Ultimates issues
  • Ultimate X-Men 14 to current
  • Wolverine and the X-Men 15 to current
  • All New X-Men 1 to current
  • AND MORE!  (note: full list not yet disclosed for various reasons)

Each week after this until the Banner Contest is over will contain a simple random comment winner.  Look for the specific contest post each following Wednesday and make a comment.  Further details will be available in said upcoming post, though please make sure your wordpress account contains your valid e-mail address.  Prizes won’t be rewarded until AFTER the grand prize winner has been selected and their prize chosen.  I am not responsible for any code that does not work.  Prizes and contests subject to change.


About xxadverbxx

I'm a fan of comics. I use to love DC, but events pretty much starting with the New 52 had pushed me off of them for years. Lately though titles like Gotham Academy and We Are Robin have brought me back to them. I'm much more still a Marvel fan though at this moment who I moved to since New 52 slowly kept pushing me away from DC. Often a fan of X-Men titles while I've really been loving Spider-Gwen series. Film wise I'm upset at DC though I really really want them to do good. At least their TV series are mostly enjoyable (though Arrow has dipped in quality), while I'm a huge fan of the Marvel films. Also, I still really hate Dan Didio and still view him as at least most of what has been going wrong with DC comic wise lately.

  1. And I have too many digital comic codes that I know what to do with. If you want any, hit me up. After all with the low traffic here lately and my lack of contest ideas, well it won’t hurt 😛

  2. Yeah, well readership has really been down lately, and offering out free comics has barely helped. Not sure how well it’ll hold up at this moment with just two bloggers.

  3. Haha, yeah, Starfire. Our two posts on her being not a bimbo/being over sexualized are third and fourth place for most hits. After the Teen Titans #1 rant and one of the Top Ten Comic Artist posts.

    My poor Raven nude sadly doesn’t bring in as much hits as I thought it would. Poor Raven.

  4. My intro to both characters was the Teen Titans cartoon. Starfire in it was nice, though seeing her in the comics was kinda a large wow. Seeing how they changed her in the New 52 was an even bigger WOW. As for Raven, I liked her as well in TT, and more than Starfire. Probably for in high school when it first came out for me, I was more the quiet bookworm. Comics again though, not a big fan. Mainly, for like you, it seemed about half of TT v.3 centered around that same Raven story. That and they kept pairing her with Beast Boy who is really creepy in the comics and was what, early/mid 20s being creepy towards the teenage heroes (especially Cassie) and Raven (who he ends up dating despite her having been dead for some years and coming back to life in a 16 year old body).
