This is a public invite for all local artists to visit Alpha Comics on Wednesday, March 11th. The challenge is to create the best cover for Howard the Duck #1. You will be given one copy of the the Howard the Duck #1 blank variant. Then at the store, use your art skills to create a cover that will make jaws drop. Bring your own supplies. There is no restriction with medium, only that the art has to be on the blank variant. Alpha Comics will be open 11am – 9pm that day and artists can visit anytime on that date to work on and submit their cover. Art must be done in the store. Each submitted cover will be scanned and uploaded to alphacomics.ca. On Thursday March 12th entries will viewed by our guest judge. Prizes will be awarded to the top three covers as decided by Howard the Duck writer, Chip Zdarsky. (Guest judge will not be appearing in the store, they will be sent scans of the entries to view.)
