British comic book publisher Time Bomb Comics launched the anthology Quantum last week with a competition.
To win the original cover artwork as pencilled by David Morris and inked by Pat O’Connor, buy a copy from a shop, take your new copy of Quantum #1 outside and post a selfie with it along with where (name and address) you bought it.
I guess that’s a bit of market research for Time Bomb, but original art is worth a selfie, I think! The self can go on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. Sorry fellow Mastodon users, our time will come.
The draw happens on the 21st of June, which feels like ages away, but Quantum has gone international, and entries can be from anywhere in the world.
I know Quantum is in WS Smith here in the UK, and if you can’t get out (which might close competition doors) you can order it from Forbidden Planet International. At least, this is what Time Bomb says. I’ve had no luck looking up the first comic book online.
It’s all about supporting local stores, though, and Steve Tanner of Time Bomb Comics told the press;
We want to recognise how important the newsagents will be to Quantum’s success, so that’s why the rules of entry for our unique cover art giveaways are designed to give them some much deserved kudos too. So, if your local independent newsagent doesn’t have a copy of Quantum on the shelf, ask them to order one for you and enter our cover art competition when you get it.
It’s just one part of what we’ll be doing with Quantum. We hope the readers will enjoy the content, but we also hope they’ll enjoy being involved with the comic on a deeper level. A Quantum level!”
Quantum isn’t all old school, though. There’s a QR code inside the comic book, which takes you to a private web page with unique features.
