Competition: Get killed in the second story arc of 'The Strain'.

You don't have an awful lot of time to enter this one (competition closes tomorrow night) but I thought I'd post it anyway as it does look pretty cool :o)

From the Press Release...

The plague is coming and we want to know how you will survive.
Win a chance to get killed in the 2nd Story Arc of The Strain!

We're making preparations for the coming infestation, storing food, comics and weapons. The Strain #1 is on its way, infecting comic shops on Dec. 14th. And here's a little contest to get you excited for the comics from Guillermo del Toro, Chuck Hogan, David Lapham and Mike Huddleston.

We want to hear how you will survive the vampire plague. In the comments below give us at least a 200 word description of how you plan to survive the coming epidemic. What supplies will you need? Where would you go to hide? Who would be with you? What weapons would you need? Give us all the details, we need help figuring out how we'd survive.

Official Rules:

1. Post a comment of at least 200 words on the Dark Horse Blog ( by 11:59p.m. PT on Sunday Dec. 4th, 2011 and describe how you plan to survive the coming plague.
2. Come back next week as we post the top 5 Survival Tales, once per day through Dec. 9th.
3. Starting Dec. 9th. come back to the blog and Vote for the best Survival Plan Through Dec. 13th.

***We'll post the winner on Dec. 14th, the release date of The Strain #1

The Winner of this contest will have their likeness drawn into one of The Strain arc two comics to be killed by a Vampire. We will finalize details with the winner individually.

I don't think I'll have time to spare to enter this competition (what with cleaning the house, getting the Christmas decorations up and looking for a new job; more on that last bit another time) but... two hundred words for the possibility of getting killed off in 'The Strain'? Sounds like a fair trade to me :o)
