Sorry this is late Crawl Spacers but I’ve been buried – literally buried – at work. Now I know we’re all busy talking about Spidey getting a teenage sidekick – and hey, what says “Spider-Man’s Young, Wild & Free, Baby!” more than getting a teenage sidekick? – but let’s divert for a moment to discuss the contest I decided to start up completely out of the ether during Podcast 181.
At the end of May Marvel threw a wedding cover on Avenging… no wait, Astonishing… X-Men #51. It was most notable for what was not on it – namely Peter & Mary Jane as a married couple, amidst several pictures of numerous other Marvel spouses through the years. Marvel editor Tom Brevoort responded to the hubub with his own trademarked brand of tender fan love and understanding. But now, you can have your very own say – and the Spider-Man Crawl Space will tell you how!
So here’s the contest. Brush up your image editing skills and put your favorite picture of Spider-Man/Peter & Mary Jane as a married couple right there on that cover where the big white blank spot is. Here are some ground rules:
1.) No fan art. The image must come from a comic or Marvel promo.
2.) One submission per Crawl Spacer.
3.) The image cannot come from Amazing Spider-Man Annual #21.
4.) No Purchase Necessary. No message board registration necessary.
5.) Admins and Crawl Space Contributors/Staff are ineligible.
6.) All entries must be sent in to Brad Douglas at firstname.lastname@example.org by July 15th, 2012.
7.) Entries will be judged & a Winner chosen by the Crawl Space Admins.
So what do you win? The Grand Prize Winner will win a Trade Paperback of their choice, with the following caveats:
1.) The Prize cannot be ‘One More Day’/’Brand New Day’ related. If it’s a Spidey Trade Paperback you want, it will have to be from before OMD.
2.) The Prize must be a Marvel book. Sorry, DCNU fanboyz!
2.) The Trade Paperback you request must be $30 or less in value.
Entries posted to message boards or linked to front page threads will not count. All entries must be emailed to Brad at the email above.
Crack your Photoshop knuckles and help fix Merry Marvel’s Mistake, Crawl Spacers! Good Luck!
