Face front, horror hounds!
You like free stuff! You know you do! We know you do! We also know that you love THE TOOTH with an almost unwholesome intensity! And like a bikini-clad genie from the Magic Lamp of Azorial*, we are here to grant your wish!
This is your chance to own a one-of-a-kind piece of memorabilia from THE TOOTH! How one-of-a-kind, you ask? Well, these things are almost genuinely unique!
We’re talking about a set of hand-made** Inert Caleb King Demon and Extra-Dimensional Marauder Totems®! These finely-crafted gems*** are “pretty darn close” replicas of the totems featured in issue 35 of THE TOOTH (“Death Duel in the Dentist’s Domain”). Do they have magical properties? Well, that depends on how you define magic, my friend, just as one-of-a-kind is open to interpretation. Believe us when we say there are very, very few of these sets running around, and this one comes with a Certificate of Awesomticity****!
How do you score this piece of comic book history?
Simple! The Tooth isn’t much of a social creature, but you—dear reader—can be. All you have to do is post a review, fanfic, pun, photo, artwork, poem, or other love (be creative) on one (or all) of the following places:
- Amazon (make sure to drop us a line through this page’s contact form so we know you’re participating
- Goodreads (make sure to drop us a line through this page’s contact form so we know you’re participating)
- Twitter (make sure to tag the post #thesavagetooth so we can see it)
- Facebook (make sure to tag Cullen Bunn, Shawn Lee, and Matt Kindt)
- Your Blog (or any other blog for that matter) (again, make sure to drop us a line so we can see what you’ve done)
On July 20, 2011–right before San Diego Comic Con–we’ll select one participant at random to receive the set of totems! Please keep in mind, we’ll only consider posts made after this announcement in the contest.
You can do one or all of the above. If you do more than one of the above items, we’ll put your name in the hat for each time you do something.
Finally! Take a picture of your dentist reading THE TOOTH and post it somewhere for all to see and we’ll enter your name a whopping 10 times! And make sure this guy looks like a dentist. Don’t just take a picture of your dad (unless he is a dentist) reading the book and say, “This is Dr. Jones when he’s off-duty, eating chili, and watching Campus Cops.” We want some visual proof that this is a real tooth-yanker!
That’s all there is to it!
Get out there and start spreading the love!
*As seen in JOURNEY INTO TERROR #116.
**Hand-made by THE TOOTH co-writer Shawn Lee out of Sculpy or some other esoteric substance. No two sets look exactly alike. The set pictured is the personal set of one of the authors.
***Not real gems… and not really “finely” crafted.
****Lovingly printed on an ink-jet printer of your choice… and by “your choice” we mean whichever printer isn’t bone-dry when it comes to ink.
