Titan Books & AICN Bring you A KICK-ASS: CREATING THE COMIC, MAKING THE MOVIE Contest!!

Merrick here...
...with an opportunity for you to snag one (1) of five (5) copies of KICK-ASS: CREATING THE COMIC, MAKING THE MOVIE from Titan Books. As with most books from Titan, this is a handsome publication rich with images and concisely presented information. It's filled with comic frames, storyboards, script fragments, and detailed insets about KICK-ASS' development in comic and film form. The books official description reads thusly:
The essential companion to the movie, based on the bestselling comic book by Mark Millar and artist John Romita Jr. When an average high school student sets out to become the self-styled superhero Kick-Ass, he soon finds himself in over his head after meeting 'the real deal' in the shape of pint-sized lethal weapon Hit Girl and her intimidating mentor, Big Daddy. With Mark Millar as your guide, get the lowdown on the creation of the comic and the making of the film, with eye-popping art from the original comics, unseen John Romita movie artwork, script extracts and hundreds of movie photos! Adults only! Kick-Ass: Creating the Comic, Making the Movie is out now. The graphic novel of Kick-Ass is published by Marvel in the US and Titan in the UK.
Here are some images you'll find in the book. Know that they are EMBIGGENABLE!

So, what do you gotta do to get it? It's simple - but please read carefully. ** Sometime between the time you read this and 11:59 PM CST USA on Monday March 8, send an e-mail to me via the link below. You can enter once daily for each of the contest's five days (which = five entries total). ** Include your name and mailing address in this e-mail. The address is to expedite prize shipment only and will be summarily discarded once book recipients are chosen. No spam, no mailing lists, etc. ** CONTEST IS OPEN TO INTERNATIONAL READERS!!! ** Be sure to send from an ACTIVE (and frequently checked) E-MAIL ACCOUNT. If I try to reach you & my message bounces back? I'll trash your win and move on to the next closest winning contestant I can reach. ** I've already pre-selected ONE time of day between today (Thursday) and Monday (five days, one copy awarded per day). The person who e-mails me at (or closest to) one of these pre-selected times will receive a copy of the book. NOTE: I've been asked this before, so...for clarity...I'm using whatever time is stamped on the Yahoo mailing address established for this contest as the determiner. I'm in Central Time USA, so I guess that's a CST time stamp (?). ** The five recipients will be announced next week. ** Titan will have your addresses in hand Tuesday morning & they've been kind enough to handle fulfillment in this contest. ** As a general FYI, you should know that...due to the number and frequency of entries...recipients in past contests were sometimes selected by matters of seconds. Literally. ** Just for fun, answer the following question for me: If you could be your own vigilante "superhero" (note the quotes around "superhero"), what heroic personae/alter-ego would you create? One or two sentences are fine here - this doesn't need to be a long essay. YOU WILL NOT BE JUDGED ON YOUR ANSWER - YOUR WIN WILL BE DETERMINED BY TIMING ONLY. However, failure to include this answer will result in disqualification. ** If you don't want your name, state, and answer announced on the site, say so in your entry.
All you gotta do now is...

KICK ASS HERE!!!

    any chance to get away from this twitter contest thing

    by marv42134213

    I work all day, and would never think about using twitter. Could we go back to the days before everyone did everything on a cell phone and just have our contests on here using e-mail. I know alot of folks use this thing. But also alot of us have jobs and can't spend all day looking at our phones playing the twitter game. Pretty please could we at least go 50-50 on these so those of us without this twitter nonsense have a chance at winning some of these great prizes? Thanks

  • March 6, 2010, 6:39 a.m. CST

    OK..sorry, I'm an idiot.

    by marv42134213

    Sorry, I thought this was another twitter contest. I guess I need to drink more coffee before posting. Still I have twitter though. Opps, my bad. Everyone can start making fun of me now:>
