  • that's right, once again, i will be providing prizes for the top 3 finishers. all i ask is that the prize winners cover a portion of the shipping. as soon as i figure out what the prizes will be (yes, free comics. but how many?), i can figure out the shipping costs.

  • Participated a few years back and it was a ton of fun. Getting in just under the wire, and looking for another fun time. Thanks for hosting it.
    Daredevil Completist... well, trying my hardest anyway. If you have some cheap issues with DD in them, I'm probably interested.

  • prize update:

    all i ask from the 3 winners is $5 to help cover shipping.

    the 3 winners will be the top 3 listed on the leader board at the end.
    ties will be broken by the systems tiebreaker (i believe the ties go to whoever got there picks in 1st).

  • Posted: April 8, 2022 12:08:15 pm
  • i need the top 3 finishers to contact me about claiming prizes.

    as we've done in the past, all prizes are null and void after 4/30/22.
  • Posted: April 8, 2022 12:42:27 pm
  • Wait a minute, the 3 winners don't want free comic books? That seems weird to me.
  • Posted: April 8, 2022 2:06:40 pm
  • ONLY reason I wouldn't like Free Comic Books would be if I were independently wealthy ... that's never gonna happen in my world!!
  • Posted: April 8, 2022 2:42:53 pm
  • the past couple of times we've done this, i've had to track down the winners and almost force them to claim their prizes. and i think last year, or maybe the year before, only 1 or 2 out of 4 winners actually claimed.
