Another Bleeping Contest?!?

Yep. You read it right. I'm running another bleeping contest ALREADY. That's because the wonder that is Barry Lyga has provided a signed copy of Wolverine: Worst Day Ever for me to give away. That's right, bay-bee. SIGNED. I didn't think this book could get any better, and then it did.

So, without further ado, I'd like to announce the Supertitle Contest. Bring me your tired, your poor, and your superhero-related book titles. Anything goes; use superheroes from comic books (and I have to admit that if there isn't at least one Batman eyebrow-related entry, I will be v. disappointed), or make up your own. Or just give me titles about superheroness in general. As with the rest of my contests, wit rules. If you can make me snarf, you're more likely to win. Past winners of my title contests are:

The BRAINS contest (for witty brain-related titles): No Pain, No Brain

The snarfy subtitle contest (for mock subtitles to existing books): The Scarlet Letter: The A is Not for Awesome

This contest will be open for entries until noon EST on Monday June 29th, and a winner will be announced on the 30th. Enter as many times as you want by posting your titles in the comments section of this post. The winner will receive the aforementioned signed copy of Wolverine: Worst Day Ever, which is this awesome mismash of story and comic book. You don't know how much willpower it is taking to give this baby away instead of hoarding it to myself, my precious. You'll also get one of my patented Wonder That Is My Blog prize pack, which contains random geektastic stuff like ninja devil duckies. You can see one of my most recent prize packs here, but please note that the contents vary from pack to pack depending on what is making me snarf at that moment.

Also please note that this prize pack doesn't contain a gift card, since I just gave one away last week. But it's Wolverine! He's swexy! And it's signed!

(Just fyi, it must be your day on my blog. One search term was Carrie Harris LDS [odd, I didn't know you were converting to Mormonism] and another was knittedninja. So famous!)

(I always swore to myself I'd never comment on the word verifications, but really, mine is WHORK. Seriously. Is that like a fork that sleeps around?)
