    This contest is now over! Thanks to everyone who entered, and congratulations to the winner.

    Another week, another batch of contests for you. Today’s comes with a twist though: we’re going to have two winners.

    Here’s the deal: we have a copy of “The Strange Talent of Luther Strode” vol. 1 with an exclusive sketch inside by Tradd Moore. We also have a copy of “The Strange Talent of Luther Strode” #6 exclusive Larry’s/Jetpack Comics variant, also with an exclusive sketch by Tradd Moore. Two books, two sketches, two winners.

    How are we doing this? Simple: all you have to do is comment on this post with your strange talent and e-mail address, and two winners will be chosen at random. A first-place winner will be chosen at random and will be allowed to choose the trade or the comic. A second-place winner will then be given the item not chosen. (It’s slightly sloppy second-ish, but you’re still winning either way.) The contest runs from now until Noon EST tomorrow, where the winners will be e-mailed in order.

    Not sure what “Luther Strode” is all about? Here’s a preview:

    So, what kind of strange talent do you have?

    Matthew Meylikhov

    Once upon a time, Matthew Meylikhov became the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Multiversity Comics, where he was known for his beard and fondness for cats. Then he became only one of those things. Now, if you listen really carefully at night, you may still hear from whispers on the wind a faint voice saying, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine is not as bad as everyone says it issss."
