ARE YOU A WARLORD? (CONTEST - WIN A COMIC)...


Standard image, copyright D.C. THOMSON & Co., Ltd

Okay, peeps, here's the deal.  I have a battered, beat up, repaired (but complete) copy of WARLORD #1 that I'm aiming to give away.  It'd make an okay 'reading' copy, so if you want it, all you have to do is say why I should give it to you.  The best answer (in my view) gets it.  The funniest, smartest, daftest answer has more of a chance, so get your brain oils cooking and see what, if anything, you can come up with.

When I choose the winner (assuming there are any entries), I'll announce it right here.  Then the winner sends his address to the comments section and I'll despatch the mag.  Relax, the address won't be published, nor will it be used for any other purpose, and will be deleted from my files after use.  Interested?  Then get going.  Competition closes on the 20th.

Right, DS - you're the winner.  Send me your address (which no one but me will see) and I'll get your comic in the post to you.

Will you end up declaring yourself the winner like you did last time you held a compo?

H'mm, an alliterative name. If I were to use the skewed sense of logic regularly employed by another blogger, I'd be compelled to deduce that I must've written your comment myself. (Luckily, I don't use his 'loaded' logic.) You'll be referring to my caption contest, in which there was no prize offered and therefore no one lost out by me writing the best caption, thereby rendering your supposed 'wit' rather redundant. Further to that, why would I seek to win something that I already own? Didn't think it through, did you, 'Titty Watson'?

Prove it, CJ. (Entry noted.)

I'd love the chance to curate your copy of Warlord #1. My grandad loved war comics and would buy and read them himself right up til he was in his 60s. He'd often read them to me, usually going into far more detail about weapons and wounds than was probably appropriate for a very young child, and would sometimes make up new stories to fit the pictures - usually these involved some baddies getting into a fight with a Scotsman who'd had a few drinks (I think there was an autobiographical aspect to the stories he made up...) and wanted some ice cream.

If I was to be the new owner of the comic, I'd read over it with due reverence for the work that the often underappreciated creators put into it, then read it again trying to imagine how enjoyable it would have seemed to my grandad in 1974, then read it yet again this time making up my own stories of a wee Glaswegian guy full of attitude and whisky taking on the bad guys and winning. After that, it'd be looked after and added to my trove of fantastical fiction items.

Oh, good answer, DS. You paying attention, CJ?

Colin Jones said...

Kid, I think you've found the comic's new owner - I only entered the competition for a laugh anyway :)

Still got to wait 'til the 20th to see if anyone else enters, CJ. Contests don't seem to attract much attention in Bloggerland, do they?
