The Official Herd of Cats 2nd Anniversary / Site Redesign / Save-the-Mascot / Just Because... Contest


By Coxxorz - Posted on 02 September 2009

Because we love you this much.

At the risk of running contrary to our clan motto (something about randomness I'm told), there are just so many reasons to have a contest right now. Not least of which, the grand prize is AWESOME.

And here it is: one shiny new copy of Batman: Arkham Asylum for Xbox 360. And no, not Blackwalt's used copy, which I'm sure will be available any day now at the rate he's been playing. This is the real deal. And it was a real deal too. So not only will you get an excellent game, but a story and a half about how you came to own it. (Hint: you can use it to pick up chicks!)

Want to know how to enter? Easy: Just send us your original Disney/Marvel Mashups. And it doesn't have to be an elaborate Photochop job, either (although the judges do like pretty pictures). Your entry can be a piece of creative writing (e.g.: Top Ten Previously Rejected New Character Ideas that Will Now Become A Feature Movie), or an interactive game, or just something you doodled at work. It can be a biting editorial commentary on the Disney commercial juggernaught, or just Pooh's head on Hulk's body. Entries will be judged on originality. So enter often!

Here's a sample to get your creative juices flowing:

Coming Soon: Marvel/Disney comic crossovers

PRIZE: One new copy of Batman Arkham Asylum for 360 (slightly chewed)
ELIGIBILITY: Breathing, Human (no Zombies please)
DEADLINE: Random

UPDATE: Heck, let's open this up to everybody. If you're not a HoC member, feel free to email us (see address at bottom of page, unless Q-Bert broke the site again).
UPDATE 2: Contest is now closed. Stop sending in entries already!

It really does pay to be part of the Herd! Seriously this is pretty cool.

Aren't we going to have a LAN soon? It's been a while.....

Stupid Noir, you had to pay for your version...

It was a tough decision, but in the end, there could only be one winner. Congratulations to SWAG and his Poolossal entry. You are the new owner of a shiny new copy of Batman Arkham Asylum. Good job! You can pick it up at the HoC Clubhouse as soon as Half-Pint is done with it.

And an honourable mention to both the other valid entries. A solid effort!

We're already planning our next Official HoC contest, to be announced as soon as Future Shop makes another serious screw-up on their website. Any day now...

I'm really happy for you and I'm going to let you finish, but Stormblade's Tinkerbell submission was one of the best of all time!

Last minute entry from Graybush.

Too many gamma rays in my honeypot!Too many gamma rays in my honeypot!

Solely to keep Hardwood from winning.

Stormblade's picture

Especially the shadow effect ...

Swag's picture

Had to brush up on some old photoshop skillz!

In case anyone is wondering, I made everything from scratch (except of course Pooh himself and the sky background). Using photosource form Colossus himself was too difficult.

Coxxorz's picture

That's more involved than I ever would have attempted. Nice work!

Swag's picture

I am here to WIN!

Blackwalt's picture

This may not be totally original but I like the placement better and it's more subtle. Disney isn't going to change the characters overnight, it will be a slow creeping takeover...

And way more effort than Blackwalt's adding of Mickey ears to everything.

Stormblade's picture

Created with GIMP by the way. Viva la open source!

Coxxorz's picture

Is there a caption or clever name to go with it?

Stormblade's picture

It's Eyeore. His home blew up ...

again.

MauriceRevek's picture

Clever? Does not compute.

Stormblade's picture

Where's your attempt?

MauriceRevek's picture

Gotta figure out which end of the crayon goes on the paper.

Coxxorz's picture

You mean he didn't purposely pick a superhero that's not from the Marvel universe?

Stormblade's picture

So I don't know where my superheroes come from. So shoot me.

You're the one who offered up the Batman game, so no wonder I am confused.

Coxxorz's picture

You got me there. Surprised nobody's mentioned it until now.

Blackwalt's picture

Here is my first entry

Cause I really need a second copy of Batman for my second xbox.

Stormblade's picture

you have far more free time than any of the rest of us.

Akuf's picture

So not only will you get an excellent game, but a story and a half about how you came to own it. (Hint: you can use it to pick up chicks!)

Unless of course you are me. And add some funny tidbits to the story
