Same as last week


To win some comics this week, you just have to read a comic and write (at least) 2 - 3 paragraphs describing the events of the comic. 

Comics that are eligible are ones that come out this week (10/15) and any from last week (10/8) that have NOT already been written up.


Each comic counts as one entry.   When you add an entry, be sure to post here so I can keep track of who wrote the summary for which issue.  As before, you don't have to be the one that uploaded the issue to the site, just be the one that writes the summary.  Make sure it is your summary.  Do not copy summaries/reviews from other sources.

And what I'm looking for is 2-3 paragraphs.  Not sentences.  Summarize the comic.  If someone didn't buy the comic, they should have a pretty good idea what happened in the issue after reading your summary.

Contest ends at the end of Sunday.  Winner will be announced on Monday the 20th.  Last week we only had a few people trying.  All it takes is one entry to win.  Points for these summaries have also been raised, so that means more points.

(This comic didnt come to my local shop till today and its been out since August. Just felt it should be put out their since its an awesome comic.)

Summary

The rules of killing zombies have never been more life saving than today. The worlds over run by the flesh eating walking dead, they have covered the globe an very little hope resides in the residents of Faringdon country, their city completely over run by the dead.

With little survivors all they can do is hope for the best an that they dont run out of ammo.

Let's try something new.  How about we start putting the copied solicit overview in italics and any original summary in regular font?  That way by just glance, you can tell what is the generic description and what is actual information.  I know this won't get out to everyone but maybe people will catch on.

I usually just do a Brief Overview section (which the solicit can be in) and then the Spoilers section...

Some say it's cheating.  Doing your own is obviously better.  Keeps us original since everyone uses those blurbs.  I say something is better than nothing.  But a full summary is obviously aces.

I don't think its cheating, but truthfully I think its boring...most of the solicits people post say the prices of the comic or talk about it without actually telling you anything much about the comic...so in that case I think nothing is better than it...but if you summarize the issue AND have the solicit, I don't see anything wrong

Guess it's not really a surprise that Darkchild is this week's winner.  It was a big week in comics.  I think I myself spent over $130 on comics.  Doesn't seem like many others are interested in this type of contest.  I might have to rethink the whole thing. 

So there may not be an official contest this week but, if I get a chance, I will still reward the good work.

Here's Darkchild's loot for this week:
