Comic-Con is quickly approaching. How are those comic masterpieces coming along? Joystiq thinks they’ve already won, but we beg to differ. Regardless, there’s only a a little over two days left, people — put on your final touches and get those comics in!
Here’s a breakdown of what you’re playing for:
-Entry to the July 22 Insomniac Games and SCEA Comic-Con community event, co-sponsored with G4. The winner of the “Captain Qwark’s My Blaster Runs Hot” weapons contest will be announced, and they’ll be presented with a real-life replica of the weapon they created. Plus, there will be a special reveal and more.
-The following night, you’ll get special access to an exclusive PlayStation event where you’ll go hands-on with some of our biggest upcoming PS3, PSP and PSN titles. Here are just a few:
- Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
- God of War III
- Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time
- Gran Turismo PSP
- LittleBigPlanet PSP
All the entry details are here, but all you need to do is use the official template above (click here for a hi-res version) and create your own Ratchet & Clank comic based on “time.” You can do it all digitally or hand draw it, but either way you must submit your comic to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59pm (Pacific) this Friday, July 10th! Please include your name, address, and indicate whether or not you’ll be in the San Diego area on July 22nd.
Once we process the submissions, we’ll be creating a Flickr folder with all the comic strips on Monday, July 13. The comics with the most views from July 13th – July 17th will be get access to the aforementioned events on July 22nd and 23rd in San Diego, along with a guest.
For those of you that can’t make it out to San Diego, we’ve got your back. Send in your comics anyway, and the top-rated artists will receive a Comic-Con Schwag Bag, including the incredibly awesome inflatable R&C wrench pictured below.
And make sure to check out the official rules here. Must be a US resident 18 or older to win.
