Marvel’s ‘The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ Comic Creator Gives Kids Chance to Have Creation Appear in a Marvel Adventures Comic Book
Starting in May, kids are invited to show off their creativity in Marvel The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Comic Creator Contest. One grand prize winner will get their comic featured as an insert in an upcoming Marvel Adventures comic book and five finalists will win a fantastic Thor prize pack. To enter, kids can go to Disney.com/Create to design their own comic and then save and share it online for a chance to win.
The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Comic Creator app on Disney.com/Create lets kids tell their own story by adding characters, backgrounds and dialogue to a series of comic book panels. Kids can also use a variety of unique drawing tools to create their own characters and scenes, just like a real comic book artist.
To help kids find their inner artist, two exclusive videos featuring Marvel Entertainment Chief Creative Officer, Joe Quesada will be featured on the site. In the first video, Quesada offers insights into what it means to be creative, where his inspiration comes from, and his advice for young artists. The second video gives kids an over-the-shoulder view of Quesada drawing Marvel’s Thor character, in a time lapse video that showcases the artistic process.
The contest ends May 31, 2011 and official rules can be found here.
Beginning next week, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Haunted Mansion have been added to the attractions open during morning Extra Magic Hours at the Magic Kingdom. Hang on to your hats and glasses and please, please, please don’t forget your death certificate. After all, you can’t run from trouble, there ain’t no place that far.
