Image Comics Contest Offers Chance For Fan To Appear In Proof Comic

Have you always dreamed of appearing in a comic book? But, you don’t have time to run for and get elected President like Barack Obama. Well, Image Comics has a slightly easier way for a fan to make an appearance in one of their favorite comic books in their “Prove You’re A Proof Freak” contest. Proof is a comic book created by Alex Grecian and Riley Rossmo and published by Image Comics. Grecian said "Since issue number one, Riley and I have been blessed with a terrific fan base who often go out of their way with grassroots efforts to promote the series. The Prove You're A Proof Freak contest takes it one step further, by giving fans the chance to show off their fandom in a creative way - cut cardboard, sculpt ice, paint the side of your house, mow the logo into your corn field - do whatever it takes within legal means to show the world how much you love Proof! Our favorite Proof display could have three readers winning big!" In order to enter the contest, readers have to send photos of their Proof display to letterstoproof@gmail.com before 12:00 PM EST time on April 1st, 2009. Alex Grecian and Riley Rossmo are the sole judges of the entries, and they will select the top ten entries to be published in Proof. They will also select a second runner up who will receive a copy of Proof #1 signed by Grecian and a first runner up who will receive an original sketch by Rossmo. However, the biggest prize goes to the Grand Prize winner who will be drawn into Proof as a Victorian-era circus freak, created using their name and likeness, and will receive a page of art from the issue they appear in. To get the full details, rules and regulations on the contest, visit the Proof forum on the Image Comic website for updates. Proof Vol. 1: Goatsucker and Proof Vol. 2: The Company of Men trade paperbacks are currently available in comic book stores.
