What would you do if you found a hitman’s cell phone full of grisly photos of dead bodies? And then the phone started ringing?
That’s the question Andy Diggle and Jock (creators of THE LOSERS and GREEN ARROW: YEAR ONE) ask in Image Comics‘ new noir series SNAPSHOT. We decided since we liked this San Francisco based crime with a twist comic so much (and also where the action takes place here in SF) that we’d put together a fun contest to score you all some autographed bookplates, a chance to be in future issues of the comic, and for one lucky winner a one-of-a-kind original production artwork from the series from the drafting table of Jock himself!
So we’re laying down the challenge for folks to take a page from the thriller story and add to the mystery with our cool SNAPSHOT contest. Here’s how it works:
* Stage you or your friends “death” and capture the moment with a photo on your cell phone.
* Submit the photo to our mini-site, post it on your Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag: #SNAPSHOTCOMIC
* We’ll choose from our favoirites and mail out a limited edition bookplate, signed by creators Andy Diggle and Jock. Perfect to go with your copy of SNAPSHOT #1 or the trade paperback when it’s released.
* Image Comics will be featuring the best of these photos in the back of SNAPSHOT #4, here’s your chance for comic book immortality in “death”!
* One grand prize winner will be chosen by Diggle and Jock and will receive a page of ORIGINAL ART from SNAPSHOT by Jock!
Simple, right? Ojk, let’s fill those phones with photos and kick this promotion off in high style! I’ll go first:
Check out our SNAPSHOT mini-site for more contest information and to see everyone’s gruesome submissions. Make sure to pick up every issue of SNAPSHOT from Image Comics to see the story unfold and don’t miss SNAPSHOT #4 to see who the grand prize winner is!
UPDATE: The first issue of this just-launched series is getting some great critical acclaim and has been absolutely flying off store shelves so fast a second printing was announced just today. Congrats to Diggle and Jock! We’re having fun watching those eBay prices going up!
