Rocksteady Studios is readying it's final Arkham adventure with Batman: Arkham Knight. In anticipation for the blockbuster's summer release, Sony's putting out a limited edition Batman: Arkham Knight PlayStation 4. Wouldn't it be nice if you could get that for free?
Twenty years ago, close to 50000 activists met for the Fourth World Conference of Women in Beijing, where almost 200 Governments established 12 areas of critical concern regarding women's rights --- the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action. Considered one of the most progressive declarations for women's rights at the time, the 1995 Beijing Declaration still remains... well, an aspirational goal rather than something we all just got on with and achieved.
This week, in line with the twentieth anniversary of the Declaration, UN Women and the European Commission have joined forces to hold a cartoon/comic competition around the theme of gender equality. Called 'Gender Equality: Picture It!', the competition invites artists from across the EU --- and across the EU only, with apologies to everybody else --- to submit comics and cartoons inspired by the Beijing Declaration. Entrants must be aged between 18-28, and no text is allowed within the final piece.
Another day, another ComicsAlliance contest. This time, we're teaming with Sideshow Collectibles to offer you the chance to win your very own Iron Man 3 Iron Man MK XVII (Heartbreaker) sixth-scale figure by Hot Toys. We literally cannot stop just giving things away. You're welcome.
Yes, that's right loyal readers; ComicsAlliance is back with another amazing giveaway yet again. This time, we're offering you the chance to get your hands on one of the limited edition J. Scott Campbell Mary Jane polystone statues from Sideshow Collectibles. Face it, readers, you just hit the jackpot. See, we said the thing she says, so now you know our geek cred is real.
As one of the last members of the Avengers to get his own figure from Hot Toys, we can relate to Bruce Banner. It's not easy being the last guy on the playground to get picked for the team. That's why it's going to be so hard to part ways with the good doctor. Well, that and his big, green alter-ego is just too much of a potential risk to keep laying around the ComicsAlliance offices. So, we're giving them both away.
Two Christmases ago marked the 20th anniversary Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, a film that’s arguably its creators’ most perfect expression of their enduringly influential animated vision of DC Comics’ dark knight — a vision that many believe is the most perfect expression of Batman in any medium. While Warner Bros. has yet to announce any plans for a high definition reissue or any other offerings connected with the special occasion, the film fanatics at Mondo — purveyors of extremely fine illustrated film posters and other cinematic celebrations — decided to honor Mask of the Phantasm with an anniversary event in connection with the famous Alamo Drafthouse of Austin, Texas, where they screened the film in its original 35mm format for a sold-out house. As always, Mondo came prepared with an extremely limited quantities of an original screen-printed poster, which serves as an update of the film’s original theatrical one-sheet and an homage to the aesthetic legacy of co-directors Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski’s work. Naturally, being a Mondo release, the poster is no longer on sale except on the collectors' market, where it fetches hundreds.
Now, ComicsAlliance was in attendance that night in Austin, and we were lucky enough to procure a variant edition of the poster -- illustrated by Phantom City Creative -- to offer to our readers in this giveaway contest. It took us quite a while, but we finally tracked down Timm as well as Andrea Beaumont herself, actor Dana Delany, who graciously signed the poster in the presence of former CA editor Andy Khouri, making this a truly one of a kind collectible.
Like Batman and free things? What a silly question, of course you do. Guess it's a good thing we're giving away some choice Batman collectibles then, isn't it?
If you haven't yet seen (or played with) the new 'Star Wars' Black Series action figures, you're missing out. These aren't your old kids toys. Unlike the classic 3¾" action figures, the Black Series are 6" tall and feature improved articulation and a great attention to detail on the figures. Hasbro VP Derryl DePriest said, "We consider them the best figures that Hasbro's ever produced for Star Wars." And, now you can win some.
Marvel has officially announced that Phase 3 of their Marvel Cinematic Universe will come to a close with 'Avengers: Infinity War,' which will be released in two parts in May of 2018 and 2019. Judging from the recently released trailer (and what we already know about Marvel comics), it will follow Thanos as he gets his hands on all six Infinity stones (Soul, Time, Space, Mind, Reality and Power), gaining God-like power in the process (and using it all to impress Death, who he's desperately in love with). What better way to celebrate this massive Marvel event with your very own Infinity Gauntlet?!
