Dark Horse Comics Wants to Kill You!

I'm really not kidding about that.  With the premiere of The Strain comic coming up, they are giving one fan the chance to get killed by a vampire in an upcoming issue.  How do you get the chance to get killed?  By writing the best survival plan of course!

A face only a mother can love....
I am actually a huge fan of The Strain Trilogy.  This series is flat out terrifying in how it begins, especially since it takes place in New York City.  At one point, I was reading a part of the story that took place in Penn Station and sitting in Penn Station.  It just made my imagination go into insane overdrive, and I began looking for vampires around every corner.  Despite my own crazy, it was a fantastic, engrossing set of books.  To be honest, after reading these books, I am not sure what a good survival plan would be!  This is such a dangerous world that Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan created.  

So now do you have a death wish?  Here are the official rules:

1. Post a comment of at least 200 words on the Dark Horse Blog by 11:59p.m. PT on Sunday Dec. 4th, 2011 and describe how you plan to survive the coming plague.

2. Come back next week as we post the top 5 Survival Tales, once per day through Dec. 9th. 

3. Starting Dec. 9th. come back to the blog and vote for the best Survival Plan through Dec. 13th. 

They will announce the winner the same day The Strain #1 hits stores, December 14th!
