This year we've teamed up with our friends at the world's greatest newspaper The Onion, the best band in the entire city Triple Cobra, the non-speaking order of the Grande Chartreuse monastery who make the fabulous Chartreuse Liquor, the crazy gentlemen behind B-Minus Comics, and our all-time favorite cable access horror hostess Ms. Monster!

This is going to be absolutely legendary.

BOOM Studios' & Isotope's Trailer Contest
Funnybooks (and Fame?) in Your Future

(San Francisco) Your amigos at Isotope - the comic book lounge announced today a sexy create-a-trailer contest for BOOM! Studios' new release LEFT ON MISSION. Isotope is inviting comic fans everywhere to produce a adenaline pumping widescreen trailer utilizing art from the comic and a musical theme by Mike Griffen, guitarist of the legendary Tsunami Bomb.

Entries will be judged by a panel which includes Keefe Boerner, visual effects producer on Sin City, and Brad Blondheim, producer of the turntablist documentary Scratch.

The Grand Prize Winner will receive a limited edition, signed and numbered hardcover copy of LEFT ON MISSION #1 along with signed copies of LEFT ON MISSION issues 1-5 when they are available. The Grand Prize Winner's trailer will be showcased on the Isotope and LEFT ON MISSION websites and also their trailer will be used as part of the LEFT ON MISSION advertising campaign.

"Trailers are an entertainment classic. They hit all your sensory hotspots while pushing you at pulse-quickening speeds into a frenzy of curiosity and excitement. And who hasn't wanted to try their hand at putting one of these bite-sized packs of entertainment dynamite together? Well, now you've got the chance to make a trailer for LEFT ON MISSION," said James Sime, proprietor of Isotope - the comic book lounge, "And let me tell you, this book will be a dream to work with - great art and a high-octane story - if you can't make a great trailer for this book, you aren't even trying!"

"I am really stoked about this contest. We have a great musical theme by Mike Griffen, the former guitarist of Tsunami Bomb. We have great judges, with a diverse background - Keefe Boerner, the visual effects producer on Sin City and Brad Blondheim, the producer of Scratch. And to top it off, we have a one of the kind prize to give away with the limited hardcover of issue #1," Chip Mosher, LEFT ON MISSION's author enthused to cool comic media outlets the world over. "I can't wait to see what people come up with!"

Entrants will be given the ability to download a wide selection of artwork from LEFT ON MISSION, with art by Francesco Francavilla and colors by Martin Thomas, a script for the trailer by writer/creator Chip Mosher, and the musical theme by Mike Griffen. The entrants will need to create a 45 to 90-second trailer using at least fifty percent or more of the artwork, script and music provided. The Trailer may also include sound effects created by the entrant, voice-over narration, and actors.

"You've got the music, you've got the art, and the sky's the limit! Knock our socks off, people!" said James Sime.

Break out your editing software, grab ahold of all the supplies you need, check out the official contest rules, and start rockin' in the You Ess Aye, people!

LEFT ON MISSION # 1 will be hitting store shelves on May 16th, 2007. Created and written by Chip Mosher, LEFT ON MISSION features stunning pencil and inkwork from rising star Francesco Francavilla of Sea of Red & The Black Coat fame, with colors by Martin Thomas and covers by Steph Stamb.

A spy thriller in the vein of The Bourne Identity, LEFT ON MISSION spotlights former agent Eric Westfall who has been called out of his perfect suburban retirement to recover an agent gone rogue. LEFT ON MISSION is a monthly limited series for fans of gritty, dark espionage thrillers like Casino Royale!
