Valiant has launched a new promotion wherein retailers can submit reviews of the upcoming X-O Manowar #1 to be entered into a contest that includes cash prizes totaling $600, or Valiant's entire yearly marketing budget, and the most precious of metals, a 1:500 X-O Manowar #1 metal variant.
Directions for the contest are as follows:
Review X-O MANOWAR #1 in a short 10 second video clip. Every video should include: who you are, the name/location of your shop, and what you thought of X-O MANOWAR #1.
Post your video using the hashtag #XOREVIEW. Tag us on Twitter (@ValiantComics), Facebook (@ValiantComics), or Instagram (@ValiantEntertainment) AND tag the store's social media.
(1) Grand Prize Winner: One copy of the awesome 1:500 X-O MANOWAR #1 Metal Variant for your store and $200 cash for you!
(4) Runner Up Prizes: A Gold Variant of X-O MANOWAR #1 for your store and $100 cash for you!
Besides being the most money that a reviewer has ever made, $200 should cover the first month of Marvel's Secret Empire or could hire a boom Studios artist for six issues with that money.
X-O Manowar #1, written by Matt Kindt with art by Tomas Giorello, is set to release Mar 22. The deadline for reviewers retailers to enter is March 21, with the winners scheduled to be announced March 29.
