Gentle readers, friends, family, and acquaintances:
We are pleased to announce that, as part of the continuing relationship between webcomics collective ACT-I-VATE (http:www.activatecomix.com) and MTV GEEK, Jim Dougan and Hyeondo Park's SAM & LILAH will be part of growing new comics lineup at the MTV site.
The first three chapters of S&L that have previously appeared on ACT-I-VATE will now also appear on MTV GEEK, with future installments to follow, likewise, on both sites.
You can read more about it, and even see video of Jim being interviewed at this year's MoCCA Festival, here:
And read (or re-read, as the case may be) the first installment of SAM & LILAH here:
SO WHAT ABOUT THAT FREE STUFF?
Here's the deal: each week we will be asking a question, or asking you to tell us a story relevant to that week's Sam & Lilah update. The best response will get the writer our Weekly Prize: a signed print of a page from that week! Then, for each Chapter, we'll pick a winner to receive the Chapter Prize: a signed copy of the ACT-I-VATE PRIMER from IDW Publishing, which contains an exclusive Sam & Lilah story that will not appear on MTV Geek (or on ACT-I-VATE). Finally, we'll choose from among all the responses over 11 weeks to receive the Grand Prize of a page (our choice) of Hyeondo Park's original art!
How do I reply: you can post here on Tumblr, on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/samandlilah), Tweet us @samandlilah, link to a blog post, or e-mail us at samnlilah AT gmail DOT com. Extra points for audio/visual responses!
Week 1's question is here:
We look forward to hearing from you!
NOTE: To be eligible for a Weekly Prize, you need to have responded during the first week the update appeared. To be eligible for the Chapter Prize, you only need to have provided a response that we like to any of the questions during the time the Chapter first appeared (winners of the Weekly Prizes will be automatically included). Finally, to be eligible for the Grand Prize, you only need to have provided a response that we like to any of the questions during the time that all three Chapters appeared (winners of the Weekly and Chapter Prizes will be automatically included, though, so if you're a latecomer it better be good!.)
So in summary: 11 free prints, 3 signed books, 1 page of original art, and an unlimited amount of Jim and Hyeondo's good will and appreciation. Good luck!
Thanks again for your time and interest!
