We’ve got a sweet contest for you comic and music lovers. The death metal band Autopsy is coming out with their very own comic book series, set for release this Halloween. The comic, Autopsy: Feast For A Funeral, details how Hell came on Halloween night for Johnny and his girlfriend, Heather. Check contest details below! (NOTE: this is separate from the film caption contest that is currently running)
1. You head to the comments section and submit your best one-liners, zingers, pathos riddled couplets etc. for the comic cover below.
2. You can enter as many times as you like and submit as many captions as you want, but each caption must be in a separate comment. Otherwise it will be too hard to tell where one caption ends and the other begins. Your entries can be posted anytime after the still is announced – just be sure to check that I haven’t announced that the contest is closed in the comments (you don’t want to submit your winning zinger after we’ve picked the winner). Also any racist, sexist, homophobic or generally hateful jokes will be disqualified. You don’t have to be insanely PC – just use your best judgement. Try and keep it brief! It has to fit on the photo now!
3. We pick the winner and announce them and their winning caption when the next photo in the contest is posted. We will address you by your BD Infected name. You can then DM me your US mailing address (no PO boxes) and I will send you your prize in a timely manner (i.e. you should have it in a couple of weeks). You must be a US resident to receive your prize!
The Prize Winner receives a signed 11” by 17” poster of the comic’s cover – signed by all members of Autopsy.
The Autopsy comic publisher, Vince Brusio offers this quote on the series:
“Autopsy: Feast for a Funeral is the band’s music put to pictures. The story and images paint a portrait of doom, death, and despair. I’ve been a huge fan of the band’s music since Severed Survival, and I always said (after I got into the comic business) that if I ever got a chance to make a brutal horror comic, I’d want it to feel like an Autopsy album. I am that much into this band. Now I’m proof that dreams (or nightmares) do come true. When I told the band that I wanted Severed Survival’s album cover to come to life, and show the people at the receiving end of the scalpel, they said “go for it.” So that’s what Mats and I did, and we’ve been working late into the night to make sure that this comic gives the band’s fans something they’ll want to collect and pass around. Mats’ art is going to blow people away. We’re already working on a T-shirt deal so that people can wear the cover to the next Autopsy show.”
