Mike Richardson, founder of the publisher Dark Horse, will reward one intrepid reader with $1000. Richardson’s The Atomic Legion contains an undisclosed number of pop culture and science fiction references that he challenges audiences to find.
The contest has been going on since the beginning of May, but there are still a few days left to enter. While it may seem fruitless to enter at this late stage, all you really need to do to win these spoils is to be the one who finds the most references. Even if you enter on the final day, May 31st, you can still claim victory as long as you put together the largest list.
In addition to that handsome cash prize, Richardson will also donate $1000 worth of Dark Horse comics and graphic novels to a comic book shop chosen by the winner.
Interested? Purchase The Atomic Legion, scour it for clues, take a picture of yourself with the book and email both the photo and your list of references to [email protected] by 11:59 p.m. (PST) of May 31st.
