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

    Today, as part of our never-ending contest series, we’re going to give you something really cool. We’ve got signed copies of the sold-out “Hoax Hunters” #0 and the not even out yet “Hoax Hunters” #1 (scheduled for a July release), and all we want is to send them off to a worthy home. Not only that, but series writer Michael Moreci really wants to do a free commissioned sketch for the winner! How awesome is that? And for the low, low price of free!

    How can you win? The contest is simple: “Hoax Hunters” is a comic about the eponymous reality show whose modus operandi is to debunk popular myths and urban legends (the opposite of Ghost Hunters, basically, or a supernatural version of “Mythbusters”), so we want you to tell us what is your favorite myth or legend that you’d like to see the Hoax Hunters debunk? Simple! Leave us your thought and e-mail address in the comments below and a winner will be chosen when the contest ends tomorrow at noon EST.

    Not familiar with “Hoax Hunters”? Never fear. We’ve got a preview of the “Planetary” meets X-Files book right here for you:

    So, you’re probably going to want to win this one, eh? Get commenting!

    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."

      Crop circles.

    • Brad

      The myth of Atlantis

      Pretty much anyone who thinks the gov’t is tracking/watching them gets on my nerves in a serious way. I’m sure the CIA has more important shit to do than count how many rolls of toilet paper you’re putting on your shopper’s plus card. We live in the information age – get over it, or become a hermit.

    • lizard people/illuminati


    • Rods. If you don’t know about them look it up. Its either VERY fake or VERY creepy.


      The myth of the female orgasm.


    • Chuck

      The myth that Kit Kat chocolate bars bring luck to Japanese students during exams. Look it up on snopes.com. It’s really a myth.


    • The Great People who are convinced of the lizard shape shifting people.


    • Love to see the Loch Ness Monster. My parents were stationed in Scotland and people honestly think it is real.


    • Avoidthetelephone

      You’ve GOT to go with the current “baby pills from China”stories that are running rampant. That would make for a great read.

    • Paull51878

      The Loch Ness Monster, good ol Nessie. And Bigfoot


    • Patrick Edger

      “Moon-Men” or “Mole-People” would both be of interest

        Ever read Dark Mission by Richard Hoagland? That book is crazy–but a lot of fun.

      Wow, these are some awesome topics! Some of which, I won’t say which ones, will appear in future issues of Hoax Hunters. Keep ’em coming!

    • Ramosian_edhunter

      The disappearance of Frederick Valentich in 1978.
      He and his plane were never found and he was last heard by air traffic controllers. He told them that he had just been buzzed by a UFO.

      Or a story about the bermuda triangle woud also be nice! 🙂


    • Craig

      it would be interesting to see what they might do with the legend of the mugwump. I was told as a child it was a bird that sat on telephone wires and could be invisible at times. sure the image is a bit corny but it would be cool to see the legend expanded on.

    • Dennis

      The Loch Ness Monster! Or, ‘fan death’ in South Korea.

      Gotta be Lord Lucan. A British nobleman, a murder, conspiracy theories and the disappearance to beat them all. tomfry001@hotmail.com
