The Rise of Aurora West Fanart Contest and Give-away!

After the success of The Battling Boy Magical T-Shirt Contest First Second and I organized for the release of Paul Pope’s Battling Boy this past October, we’re teaming again to announce The Rise of Aurora West Fanart Contest and Give-Away! Paul Pope’s friend and talented cartoonist David Mack will help judge the contest again!

In the next few months, comics has a few exciting rebrandings of established heroes starring female leads with Spider-Gwen and Batgirl, but First Second is offering up an original kid superhero in The Rise of Aurora West from the brushes of Paul Pope and David Rubin .

The Rise of Aurora West is the first in two prequel books to Battling Boy written by Paul Pope and JT Petty and drawn by the amazing David Rubin (Beowulf)! The prequel centers on Aurora West and how her relationship with her father and her past develop her into the character we see her as in the Battling Boy book.

Fanart Guidelines: Simply draw Aurora West. You can play with her design as you see fit. You can do straight-forward illustrations, comic strips, anything you want so long as Aurora West is the subject. Tag your piece #RiseAuroraWest. Winners will recieve a signed copy of The Rise of Aurora West by Paul Pope!

Giveaways! We’ll be randomly giving away several galleys of The Rise of Aurora West for the first two weeks of the contest based on who likes and reblogs this post. After those two weeks are up, the next two weeks will feature the same process, but the random few will win copies of the final book! You don’t have to follow this blog, but I recommend you do!

If you wish to buy a signed and skip the contest/give-away, Paul Pope is signing copies to be sent out from Word in New York.

Aug. 26th to Sept. 9th- Galley Give-Away Winners are randomly selected.

Sept. 9th to Sept. 23rd- Book Winners are randomly selected.

Aug. 26th to Sept. 30th-All fanart entries must be submitted and tagged (If you don’t have tumblr email your entry to davezissou@hotmail.com)

For the Aurora West Contest, with apologies to Mr. Pope, Mr. Rubin, the makers of Photoshop,and the inventors of color theory.
You know, not really apologies so much as, wow, Paul Pope and David Rubin, two artists I admire tremendously. Since THB and the Popgun days.
As for the acid colors I seemed to have landed on, well, this why I keep my comics black and white.

Tea!
