Who will be the lucky winner?

Hey folks, Elliott here with some very important news!  We’ll be alluding to this on the video channel later on this week, but YOU FANS who have made it a point to check in and read this blog regularly are going to get a head start on the rest, cuz’ I am now announcing the FIRST EVER CCW*TV BLOG CONTEST!

The winner will get an ENTIRE SET of BLACKEST NIGHT EVENT RINGS along with a copy of each TIE-IN COMIC that you had to buy to get each ring, courtesy of Mr. Melendez.  The books are:

Doom Patrol #4
Booster Gold #26
Outsiders #24
Adventure Comics #4
Justice League of America #39
Teen Titans #77 (replacing Blackest Night #5)

Rings: Green, Blue, Indigo, Red, Orange, Yellow, Pink (Star Sapphire)  (Sorry folks, the Black Lantern Ring IS NOT included.)

Pretty awesome, huh? So to enter the contest, here’s what we want you guys to do:  CREATE A CONTEST!

“Whaaaaa-? You want us to create the contest that we’ll then need to enter to win?”  NOPE!  All you have to do is come up with a clever contest idea.  Something that shows creativity and would be fun to participate in.  Something that Jose and I would actually be able to pull off sometime in the future.

For example, you could suggest that we hold a contest where viewers must write a haiku describing how Jose feels after reading a Bendis book.  That would be both easy to do and fun!

Simply put, to enter this contest you must create a contest.  The viewer who creates the contest that Jose and I like the most will be awarded with the grand prize!

Now for the rules:

1. Limit one entry per viewer please. ( We want you to really be creative and not just throw a ton of stuff at us hoping something sticks.)

2. All entries must be made in comment form on the CCW*TV blog. ( The winning entrant will be notified via the e-mail address they used when they registered with

3. If two entrants submit similar ideas, the one submitted first according to the CCW*TV blog time stamp will be given preference.

4. The judging will be done by Jose and I and our decision will be final.

5. The deadline for entering will be December 31, 2009 (the winner will be announced in CCW*TV SEASON THREE.)

6. The grand prize will be shipped via MEDIA MAIL and while we will pack everything quite nicely – Jose has bagged and boarded all the comics – no guarantees to the condition of the prize (comic books and rings) upon its arrival are made.

7. Our viewers overseas will be allowed to enter, but please be aware that if you win, it will take a lot longer for your prize to arrive.  (Postage is expensive, ya’ know.)

8. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited.  (I really don’t know what that means but I’m CMA.)

I think that’s it.

Just so you know, this contest is our way of thanking YOU, the CCW*TV viewers who watch us and follow us every week.  We want this to be a fun experience for everyone, and even if you don’t win, we want you to enjoy yourselves.

So put you thinking caps on kids and CREATE A CONTEST!  The contest starts NOW!

See you on the flip side.

Captured by the U.S. military, The Anchor must abide by his pledge to never harm humans even if it means sitting idly while a horrific new monster destroys the city of Rome. Can Matthew’s ghost free The Anchor before it’s too late? Order this book or suffer his wrath! A new BOOM! ongoing series, brought to you by Eisner Award-nominated writer/artist Phil Hester (GREEN ARROW, SWAMP THING, THE COFFIN, FIREBREATHER)

It’s Saturday here on the blog (as I imagine it is in most parts of the world) and that means that we would like to know what the best comic you read this week was. So please tell us the title of said book and why it was so damn awesome down in the comments section.

For me it was a tossup between The Sword #20 and the Empowered One-Shot.
