That's it! The first ten people to qualify will receive a genuine Ask Dr. Eldritch Button!
Be an Easter Egg Contest! Who hasn't wished that they were part of a world-famous webcomic? Now you can be! You may appear as an Easter Egg in a future comic, if you do the following: 1. Dress up in a costume. It should be some monster or supernatural creature, such as a vampire, fairy, zombie, elf, werewolf, pixie, mummy, gnome, etc. (sorry, your Doctor costume doesn't count). 2. Take a clear, full-body digital photograph. Your photo is more likely to be used of you're doing something interesting, like running, flying, attacking, hiding, peering around a corner, or even sitting as if you're watching the comic characters. Yes, "standing" is an action, but it's not nearly so interesting. 3. Unscramble this email address (askdreldritch.com @ contest), and email your photo to it, in a png or jpg format, no larger than 1M size. Include in your email how you want to be identified (e.g. Reader Zanzibar), or if you wish to remain anonymous.
That's it! So as you plan your Halloween costume (you are planning your costume now, right?), pick something suitable and you could be an "Ask Dr. Eldritch" Easter Egg!
Remember, if you're in the Portland area, let's meet at the Ben & Jerry's on SE Hawthorne at 1:00 p.m. today (that's September 3rd), and I'll buy the ice cream!
