FINAL DAYS CONTEST
As the pre-order wraps up in 12 days time, we’re holding a contest with three great prizes to be won both by funders and supporters. Yes, even if you haven’t pre-ordered a comic, you have the chance to win in these give aways.
a) FREE STUFF FOR SUPPORTERS
FOUR people will receive a free eBook version of The Editors issue #1 – no need to pre-order, or donate. The winners of these copies of the comic, will be the first FOUR people to reblog our tumblr post which goes up today (see our tumblr blog here: ( http://t-iii.tumblr.com/ ), retweet our post on twitter that will go up today marked with #TheEditors ( http://twitter.com/t_iii ), or share our Editors promo posts on facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/aKe.FERA )
We’ll also give away ONE free print issue of The Editors to the first person who manages to get a famous comic creator/fan to plug The Editors on their twitter or tumblr account. Please don’t make a nuisance of yourself or upset anyone, just ask politely and see if they will. When we say famous we mean actors, comedians, authors, or even artists/writers working for Marvel or DC etc. with verified twitter accounts. If they do, please send a link to their post and account to: firstname.lastname@example.org and if possible to your posts that convinced them to.
b) RANDOM CHANCE AT EXTRA LOOT FOR FUNDERS
If we manage to get more than $100 in funding/pre-orders, we’ll choose a funder at random to receive an extra item – this item will be the framed newspaper front page of that person as either a hero or villain in their moment of victory or defeat (winners choice). This is normally reserved for funders of the $150 “Headliner” bundle, and this one won’t count toward the availability restriction on that bundle.
Even if someone orders the “Headliner” bundle or “Editor in Chief” bundles, there will only ever be THREE of these ever made at most, and each of them will be unique to the individual that purchases and/or wins them.

(London Film and Comic Con 2009)
There have been some exciting things happening this week.
I’m currently taking part in a charity art auction featuring artwork from a number of prominent webcomic artists including Clan of the Cats, Lovefeast, Mysteries of the Arcana, Dar, Khaos Komix, Apple of Discord and many many more.
There’s also an original piece by yours truly featuring two of the major characters of my webcomic Fera.
The auction is currently taking place and will continue until Friday 24th July so make sure you head over there and take a look at some of the great art up for auction via ebay.
All proceeds go to the Point Foundation- a charity that provides financial support, mentoring, leadership training and hope to meritorious students who are marginalized due to sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
