You Love Manga! We Love Manga! Let's Manga together!

Join us for a manga-inspired art contest and you could win a HUGE Dark Horse package of manga books, posters and a seven-foot banner of Cardcaptor Sakura (much bigger than the actual character!) from our previous "Love and War" promotion.

Dark Horse's FLCL Omnibus is coming to a comic retailer and bookstore near you May 16th, 2012! We want to celebrate by throwing a fun manga-inspired fan art contest. We know we have a lot of fans who like both manga and comics, so here's the idea! Draw a comic story for us that's between two and four pages long. There are only two conditions: it has to be inspired by manga in some way (which could mean, inspired by a certain manga, by certain manga characters, or by a certain manga artist's style...) and it has to be about Dark Horse Comics in some way (which could mean, our history, our logo or people like you and me who love Dark Horse Comics...).

Have fun and be creative in how you interpret this concept! You have until April 30th at 11:59pm to share your awesome works with us!

And the prizes? Besides the aforementioned seven-foot high Sakura banner, the winner gets one copy each of Blood Blockade Battlefront Vol. 1, Gate 7 Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, Cardcaptor Sakura Book 3, Magic Knight Rayearth 2, The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service Vol. 11, MPD Psycho Vol. 10, Oh My Goddess Vols. 14 & 16, Berserk Vol. 33, a Blu-ray copy of Evangelion: 1.11 You are (Not) Alone and a Blu-ray copy of the Special Edition Director's Cut of Afro Samurai: Resurrection!!! (Prize Images Below)

The prize package is huge. Correction! It's CRAZY huge! Entries will be judged by manga editor Carl Horn (Neon Genesis Evangelion, Oh My Goddess!, Chobits, The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service).
