What you would do with a blank comic book!
We asked you, and you were full of good ideas.
The Grand Prize Entry
"I just turned 30 this week and I've been reflecting on my life and all of the ups and downs. So with a blank comic, I would want to create a keepsake that highlighted my life's big moments and the comics that I was reading at the time.
"I want my children to pick this book up one day and feel they knew their dad from the panels I attach to each page and stories that I wrote alongside explaining why that issue was mentioned there. My first issue, the first issue that made me cry, the issue I read on my wedding day, or the Daredevil comic I read when my dad had a heart attack. I'll probably use more than one book as I continue to get older. On the last few pages of the last book, I want to write a list of comics that would go to friends and family when I pass and why I selected that comic for that person."
--Jonathan Soweidy of Denver, Colorado
