That's right, you heard me correctly!! It's back by popular demand!!!

This promotion will last until October 28th. You do not need to buy anything from my store in order to participate! Oh yeah, no purchase necessary!

This prize will be awarded to one lucky contestant.

The Art of Marvel Hardcover


I will pick a winner at random at the end of the promotion. Buying something from my store WILL NOT influence who wins the prize. You may submit multiple entries and each entry will give you one more chance to win.

So if there are 10 entries and 3 of them are yours then you will have a 30% chance of winning.

With no further ado here is...

The Hall of Heroes Comic Book Cover Scavenger Hunt - Further Adventures Of!

How's that for a name! Laughing

Rules are simple, find a comic book cover that fits the description and post it here. There are five items and each entry must contain all five finds. Your find must include the criteria of the search. If I ask for a cover with Superman on it and your entry does not contain him then the entry does not count.

If you use a cover that has already been used then your entry also does not count.

Let me know if there are any questions. Call Me

#1 - INDY Homage to DC/MARVEL

Find a comic book from a non DC or Marvel publisher who's cover is an homage to a DC or Marvel comic.

Example:


#2 - Spooky Halloween!
Any comic book cover with 2 or more of the following iconic Halloween symbols: Ghost, Witch, Black Cat, Pumpkin, Scarecrow, Bats, Tombstones, Skeletons (you can be creative with this one!)

Example:


#3 - Joker - No Batman
Just like the current movie without Batman you need to find a comic cover with Joker on it but from a non-Bat title (anything with "Bat" in it) and no Batman on the cover.

Example:


#4 - Horror Movie Madness
Any comic cover, any publisher that is either an adaptation of or inspired by any horror movie.

Example:


#5 - No! It Can't be! Not You!
Any comic cover where a character or characters are reacting to something in the foreground - that is where you are when looking at the cover.

Example:


Happy Hunting!!! Dancing Party

I'm so glad you're doing this again, I forgot how much of a blast it was doing this!

#1 - INDY Homage to DC/MARVEL

Find a comic book from a non DC or Marvel publisher who's cover is an homage to a DC or Marvel comic.



Transformers: Dark Cybertron #1 VA Comicon exclusive cover. Homage to New Mutants #87. (I'd be hard pressed to go with anything else considering how much I've fawned over this cover.)

#2 - Spooky Halloween!
Any comic book cover with 2 or more of the following iconic Halloween symbols: Ghost, Witch, Black Cat, Pumpkin, Scarecrow, Bats, Tombstones, Skeletons (you can be creative with this one!)



What I REALLY wanted to do was find a cover with both of the characters Tombstone and Black Cat on the cover... you know, being creative. But apparently no such thing exists.

But if I can't have any Black Cat cheesecake, here's some regular cheesecake: Grimm's Fairy Tales: Halloween Special #1.

#3 - Joker - No Batman
Just like the current movie without Batman you need to find a comic cover with Joker on it but from a non-Bat title (anything with "Bat" in it) and no Batman on the cover.



Deathstroke: the Terminator #58. A nice homage to Deathstroke #1 and while there are bats there, no Batman.

#4 - Horror Movie Madness
Any comic cover, any publisher that is either an adaptation of or inspired by any horror movie.



DCeased #1. I'm enjoying DCeased a lot more than I thought I would and the horror movie covers are awesome.

#5 - No! It Can't be! Not You!
Any comic cover where a character or characters are reacting to something in the foreground - that is where you are when looking at the cover.



Amazing Spider-man #144, maybe not exactly to the letter of the law, since you can see Clone Gwen Stacy's leg, but I always liked this cover and it was the first thing I thought of. Plus I think it complies with the spirit of the law.

Does bluedevil2002 get an extra point for nailing #5 with an exact quote?

Not really! So far all of the submissions have qualified for entry. I thought that #5 was going to be a tough one so it doesn't have to be a direct quote of the cover. If you can find one though, that's awesome! Applause

I know you can do this, Corey. Where is your contribution? Big Grin Waiting

The promotion ends next Monday so there is still plenty of time to participate. I love the response so far, keep it coming! Big Hug Call Me

I love doing this promotion because it is awesome to see what you all come up with!

Here is a perfect example of what I'm talking about.

DCeased #1. I'm enjoying DCeased a lot more than I thought I would and the horror movie covers are awesome.

I haven't read this comic yet but I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with the movie "It". However, this is a cover contest and this cover is definitely inspired by the movie. Well done! Applause

Some of my other favorites so far are these:

There might be some of you out there who are unsure of how to post Images in the Forums. Here is a quick tutorial.

You don't always need a third party host to put images up here. If you choose a comic that is in Comic Collector Live's database then it's easy.

#1 - Find the comic you want to display the image of. I suggest using the CCL database.

#2- Right click and then select "View Image:"

#3 - Highlight the text in the navigation bar and hit Control-C (CTRL + the "C" button)

#4 - When you go to "Add Reply" click the button that says, "Image". Your message box will show "img" inside of two brackets. Click in between the inner brackets ] and [ . Then hit Control-V (CTRL + the "V" button")

#5 - That's it!

Please let me know if you want to play but need more guidance. I am always here to help!

Keep it coming! Promotion ends in 7 days. If I get a few more entries I might add a second place prize...Daydreaming

Don't forget, each time you post a response you get another entry.

All right!!! Dancing

Ah, my home computer died, and copying and pasting image tags and searching for covers in multiple windows on my phone is kind of a bear. So I'll probably sit this one out!

Doing this again just because it's fun to do, not trying to get another entry in for the prize.

#1 - INDY Homage to DC/MARVEL

Find a comic book from a non DC or Marvel publisher who's cover is an homage to a DC or Marvel comic.



I was looking for a cover homage to Sensational She-Hulk #1, but instead I found this cool homage to Incredible Hulk #181.

#2 - Spooky Halloween!
Any comic book cover with 2 or more of the following iconic Halloween symbols: Ghost, Witch, Black Cat, Pumpkin, Scarecrow, Bats, Tombstones, Skeletons (you can be creative with this one!)



Black Cat and a pumpkin. I'd never heard of this Golden Age character prior to searching for this... now I want to know more.

#3 - Joker - No Batman
Just like the current movie without Batman you need to find a comic cover with Joker on it but from a non-Bat title (anything with "Bat" in it) and no Batman on the cover.



I suppose you could argue that Birds of Prey was a Bat-title, but I still like the cover.

#4 - Horror Movie Madness
Any comic cover, any publisher that is either an adaptation of or inspired by any horror movie.



Can't stand the movie, but I like this cover.

#5 - No! It Can't be! Not You!
Any comic cover where a character or characters are reacting to something in the foreground - that is where you are when looking at the cover.



Never really thought about this cover like that, but it totally fits.
