BLADE DVD Giveaway This Month

Hey let's try a give-away this month since I have something to give away!

BLADE: HOUSE OF CHTHON is a sequel to one of the Blade flicks and I have five (5) DVDs of it to give away (from the studio). And it's the un-rated version... Anyhow if you're interested post a comic about the Blade movies or vampire stuff in a comment to this post. I'll give one DVD to the one I like the best, one to the one that's funniest and the other 3 I'll draw names out of a hat from those who posted sketches in this thread. You have until Friday, October 5th to enter and we'll announce prizes sometime before the end of the following weekend.

They made another Blade flick, you ask yourself? Yes they did (and you gotta love a show where Blade is played by someone with the name Sticky Fingaz):

The ultimate vampire hunter is back, and he is badder than ever! Blade continues the battle against his immortal bloodsucking enemies in Blade: House of Chthon, arriving on DVD from New Line Home Entertainment on September 18, 2007. Based on the successful Blade franchise, Blade: House of Chthon is the feature-length, extended and unrated pilot of the hit television show, Blade: The Series.

Here's some more details on this if you're interested. (I'm actually not getting anything for this -- I'm doing it all for you the readers!)

Re: BLADE DVD Giveaway This Month

Congrats to everyone! Will we ever get to see the other two entries?

If you want to see my entry send me an e-mail at cyberlord7 at Gmail dot comics. :)

You'll never see my entry here because it's not PG. I took out the nudity but it's still a little...strange. I'm ASS-U-ME-ing that the other entry has an issue much like my own and we will never see it unless the creator sends it to us (BIG HINT!).

Oh, yeah, I usually only check my e-mail in the morning when I first arrive at work. That means if you send an e-mail today, I'll send you the comic tomorrow morning.

Xerexes:

I would like to know what you thought of my strip. I haven't published anything yet and any feedback would be appreciated. I have wide and strong shoulders so feel free to be critical. My motto is "if I don't know it's wrong, I can't fix it."

Thank you for the opportunity to compete. :)

Just for the record - if we'd had more entries Anonymous would have been disqualified for failing to include any identifiable information (even non-registered users can leave some identifying information); and UTRadar would have been disqualified for being late (it's always before midnight somewhere in the world but the site time is official). But we only had 3 and 1/2 entries so this time everyone wins! :)

Also, Darryl says I shouldn't have turned a giveaway into an art contest. He's probably right.

If I don't have your physical mail address please email it to me so I can send off your prize. My email is xerexes AT comixpedia DOT com.

Re: BLADE DVD Giveaway This Month

I assume that as one of three people who entered (Anon above) I won. Should I be expecting some sort of notification?

Give him some time. He's off playing Halo 3.

Had I not been the only one to show any interest in this contest and had there been more than three entries I'm sure he would have been quick to resolve this. As it stands, only two people submitted strips. I'm not so sure how Xerexes will rule on the portrait. From my perspective it doesn't qualify as it's not a strip, nor is it about Blade or any vampire.

We should hear something within the next few weeks. You can afford to be patient. I saw the series the DVD is based on. It was shown on Spike TV in the Summer of 2006. It wasn't that good. HDNet showed it again in High Definition this last Summer. It was so good I only watched the two episodes that showed the naked chicks. :)

The DVD doesn't seem long enough to be the entire series. It looks like they edited it down to the bare basics. If that is true, you really can wait. :)

Re: BLADE DVD Giveaway This Month

I actually thought Blade: The Series was okay and getting better. It was certainly better than Painkiller Jane, the show that has replaced it in spirit, if not literally on the same channel. Blade:TS was kind of Highlander-esque. I suppose Bionic Woman is the current genre action show, but I find it to be equally meh with early Blade. There are 2-3 new vampire shows on this season, but they have all been so bland I can't even keep them straight in my head.

Thanks.

Re: BLADE DVD Giveaway This Month

It says it's the 6th under my post, but it's 11:14pm here in Nashville, October 5th. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Re: BLADE DVD Giveaway This Month

Wow...I just came across this site and I have 50 minutes left to enter? Well, I'm a film student who's taking the first drawing class of his life right now, so I don't think I can turn out an awesome strip by the deadline. However, I'm a HUGE fan of the Blade films and I'd love to see the new one (indeed, I was unaware one had been made). That said, I'll just post the best sketch I've done in class so far. If you like, pretend it's a vampire maiden from the 1800's.

This is CyberLord. I don't have my password with me. I am using a computer at the hotel where I am staying.
I saw the entry at http://img255.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bladeentryvs1.png. I like it a lot. I get the Bladerunner and the Sling Blade panels but I don't know what movies the final two panels reference.
It's a nice entry. I like it a lot.

Re: BLADE DVD Giveaway This Month

The other two movies are Zorro the Gay Blade and Blades of Glory.

Even I can be in the top 5 when there are only two entries. I'm not Internet savvy enough to get my comic to show up here, so when you are done pointing and laughing please check it out at the link above. Thanks!

No one's published anything yet?

I'm disappointed. I was really looking forward to seeing some Blade and/or vampire parodies.

Only a few more days left.

Hmmmm.

I had expected to see other entries by now. Mine will be ready to post Friday evening or over the weekend. I hope it won't be the only one.

Xerexes:

I would like you to preview my entry to make certain it is suitable for this web-site. Can you do this for me?

Also, I'm wondering how I would go about posting a .JPG to this site. I don't have access to the HTML code, so I'm a little confused on this. Sorry if I seem a little new to this, it's because I am. :)

If you're nervous about it's PG-ish ness post it elsewhere and put a URL to it here. You can always update the post to show it here later.

To put a picture here you're basically using the standard html <img scr="URL"> tag although if you have the WYSIWYG editor on (which is the default unless you change it) you should just click the "tree" button above the text window and fill in the image source in the pop-up box.

OK! That's clear enough. I'll work on this next week while I'm on vacation.

It will be safe enough to post here.

Re: BLADE DVD Giveaway This Month

WOO! HOO!

You're on! I have all the Blade DVDs except this one. Iwatched the show last year on Spike TV. It really sucked! No, that's not some lame vampire pun.

HD Net showed it in High Definition this summer. It looked a lot better but still lacked a lot.

I have the three Blade movie DVDs and would really like this one to complete the collection.

So, let me get this straight: I must submit a strip by October 5. Are there any length or size constraints?

Xerexes:

I was thinking about this last night and I have one more question:

Are there any content restrictions? Does it have to be PG-13? Can it be R? How about NC-17? Well, let's go all the way, can it be XXX?

Any restrictions on licensed characters? Blade is a Marvel character and I don't want to get you in trouble by using it except as a parady which is allowed under copyright law. I ask because there are some obvious Batman possibilities. Wolverine is another possibility.
