Kick-Ass Contest Offers Chance For Comic Cameo

If you’ve ever wanted to make a comic book cameo, a new “Kick-Ass” contest from Lionsgate could give you that chance.

Vistors to can upload a picture of themselves, created a superhero using various stock costume items, and then submit it for a chance to a cameo in Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.’s sequel comic.

While I’m pretty sure ol’ “Captain Splash Page” isn’t going to win (and will probably haunt your nightmares for weeks), I’m also pretty sure you can do a much better job, readers — so give it a shot and let me know how it turns out.

Read on for the full text of the instructions and a promotional video from Lionsgate.
