Ralph Wiggum Leaps Into Comic Shops!

Ralph Wiggum Leaps Into Comic Shops!

Posted on 02-29-2012

Hey Bongo Fans!


February 29th marks the release of our most charmingly off-kilter comic book of the year…Ralph Wiggum Comics #1.


Besides being filled from cover-to-cover with Wiggum-esque adventures, puzzlers, and even a Ralphie-edited letters page, this one-of-a-kind comic is actually a five-of-a-kind comic!


I know what you're thinking, and it goes a little like, "Whaaaaa…?!"


Here's the skinny. Ralph Wiggum Comics #1 is coming to comic book shops, bookstores, and newsstands with five altogether unique cover quips designed to thrill, delight, and pleasingly perplex you.


Other than the extra dose of vitamin Ralph, what does all this mean to you? Can you sense a contest? Good, because that's where we’re going.


There's only one prize, and it won't be claimed by the faint of heart. The first person to submit a photo (or photos) of themself holding all five Ralph Wiggum Comics #1 covers, will be “Simpsonized” by our infamous Bongo bullpen and immortalized in an upcoming issue of Simpsons or Bart Simpson comics. Your choice!


Remember, there are 5 different covers, and they won't all be available in the same place. Here's a little clue for any of you contemplating this Herculean labor:

Direct Market editions (on sale 2/29) feature three distinct sayings. There are two more alternates on the newsstand and bookstore versions, which go on sale 3/20.


What do the word balloons say, you ask? I’ve been sworn to secrecy, so you’re on your own there.


Email your photos to us at bongoheads@bongocomics.com. The photo (or photos) need to clearly show all five word balloons. The first qualifying entry in our inbox will be notified and then probably instructed to fill out a ton of legal waivers.  After that…comic book immortality! This may be your final chance to live forever in comic book form! Seize the day!


Good luck and Happy Hunting!


Now for the fun legal stuff: This is a bongocomics.com exclusive contest! Send your photos to our website address at bongoheads@bongocomics.com and include the following statement: “For consideration for publication in Bongo Comics. I agree if you publish my submission it becomes your property.”
