My long-time friend Jill of California has 4 adult sons who are incredibly talented. Her eldest, Brock, is living his dream, trying to break into the world of comics. Please read his message below and take a few moments to support his quest to win a big contest!
"One of the dreams I've held onto since I was a little kid was to work for one of the big two comic book companies--either DC or Marvel. This month, I've actually got a shot at it. DC Comics has an online comics arm of their business called Zuda. Each month, 10 comic submissions are pitted against each other to see which can win a contract. Right now, I have a submission in contention, MONSTERPLEX, which I wrote and created (friends David Schlotterback and Michael DeVito join me on art and colors, respectively).
"The winner of the competition is based solely on popularity. This is where I desperately need your help. Here's a list of everything the Zuda overlords are looking at to determine which comic they're going to sign for a one-year contract:
1. Votes (very important--can only vote once)
2. Adding to Favorites (very important, and can only be done once)
3. Star Ratings (can only be done once--also very important)
4. Number of Comments (can do this as many times as you'd like)
5. Traffic (numbers count!)
"To participate (vote, favorite, leave comments, etc.) you'll need to register an account over at Zuda ( www.zuda.com -- only takes a minute or two, tops). The competition runs for the duration of the month and the entries are STRONG. I'm not one to usually ask for help, but I think we've got a good comic and I'd so much appreciate your help in this. If you don't mind my saying, the prize is also worth thousands of dollars and, needless to say, that would be extremely nice.
"Anyone can register and vote and add favorites! If you have any questions about doing so, please refer to this link:
"(That's also the official Monsterplex blog where I'm posting daily updates and links to interviews and reviews). THANK YOU so much."
Good luck to you, Brock and associates!
