You might remember the (crazy) Comic Vine interview with Hybrid Bastards! creator Tom Pinchuk at the Long Beach Comic Con. You've heard about Hybrid Bastards and have even seen a step-by-step process on the birth of the Hybrid Bastards by Tom himself. Comic Vine is partnering with Hybrid Bastards! publisher Archaia to give you a chance to create your own Bastard. Interested? Check out the video for details:
TAKE THE HYBRID BASTARDS! ULTIMATE CHALLENGE!
Zeus, that randy philandering Greek god... his freakish night spent in a spell-induced, lust-filled free-for-all with every inanimate object in sight produced not just bastards, but HYBRID BASTARDS!
Creators Tom Pinchuk and Kate Glasheen brought you COTTON, a smarmy cloth patchwork; CARMINE, a timid automobile; COREY, a self-loathing apple; and WALTER, a belligerent stack of bricks. Now, they want to get you in on the game ! They want to find out what kind of hybrid bastards you can create!
THE CHALLENGE: In 50 words or less, describe your very own hybrid bastard -- an anthropomorphic inanimate object with a "punny" name! Something that could easily fit into their twisted reinvention of Greek mythology! Tom and Kate will select the five entries that tickle their fancies the most!
RUNNERS-UP: An original painted page from HYBRID BASTARDS! plus a hardcover from the Archaia library (including MOUSE GUARD: FALL, MOUSE GUARD: WINTER, AWAKENING VOL. 1, ROBOTIKA VOL. 1 and THE KILLER Vol.1)!
GRAND PRIZE: A drawing of your Bastard by Kate Glasheen, plus an Archaia T-Shirt and the aforementioned original painted page and Archaia hardcover!
GET UP AND TAKE ACTION! The HYBRID BASTARDS! hardcover is coming out this coming January from Archaia! Pre-order it at amazon.com (for a $6, 32% discount) and through PREVIEWS, Diamond code SEP 090596! We weren't joking about pre-orders! They are CRITICALLY IMPORTANT! PARAMOUNT! CRUCIAL!
FINE PRINT OF THE GODS: Winning characters become the property of Tom Pinchuk and Kate Glasheen and do not entitle winning entrants to any remuneration beyond the aforementioned prizes. Winning characters' resemblance to any past or future HYBRID BASTARDS! character is purely coincidental.
ComicVine.com takes no responsibility of any foaming at the mouth after reading HYBRID BASTARDS!
The contest will run until midnight PST Monday November 30, 2009. The winners will be chosen and announced on Monday December 14, 2009.
