Superman: Man of Style Contest

Ready to tug on Superman’s cape? Heck, tear it off and take the tights back to the drawing board! Project: Rooftop is teaming up with the Pulp Secret site and the Jim Hanley’s Universe stores for a new drawing contest that breaks even their own guidelines. That’s right, Jimmy Olsen, in honor of the 70th anniversary of Superman’s first appearance in Action Comics #1 way back in 1938, P:R, P.S., and JHU are putting out the call for redesigns of the first superhero with Superman: Man of Style!

Jim Hanley’s Universe has provided these incredible prizes:

Grand Prize (1) – The Superman No. 14 statue, Superman: Birthright trade paperback signed by writer Mark Waid, and Superman #676 signed by Vito Delsante, who wrote the issue!

Second Prize (1) – Justice League Animated Superman mini maquette and a signed copy of Superman #676.

Third Prize (1) – Superman #676 signed by Vito

Along with the usual P:R Staff roundtable reviews, fan-favourite writer and DC Universe expert, Mark Waid (Kingdom Come, Superman: Birthright), will be joining in to guest judge the finalists! The winners will be announced on Pulp Secret the following day with commentary from the P.S. crew.

Send in your Superman redesigns to, with the subject line, “Superman: Man of Style!” Please include your full name, age, website, and mailing address for prize shipment. All the usual P:R Guidelines apply…except for #7, of course.

• All entries must be received by June 15th, 2008!
