That’s right, a contest that rewards pain and grief, a brand new low in comics! So in 200 words or less, share your romantic sob story of how your heart was broken by a lover in our comments field here (http://www.myspace.com/rapturedarkhorsecomics) — the winner will be announced there in the blog section.

The prize will be an original page from Rapture. If you are the winner, you will be contacted via Myspace message. But seriously, 200 words or less or your entry is disqualified. We bid you farewell for now and ask that you explore the art, updates, and music by ‘Gil Borden and the creepy angels’ straight from the pages from Rapture!!! We will update often to keep it fun.

SPREAD THE WORD, TELL EVERYBODY!!!

People seemed a lot more keen to talk about breaking the law rather than heartbreak.

Well, my exes are my MySpace friends. Which could be a bit awkward.

Not all heartbreak is romantic... is that really necessary?

I know. Every single entry makes me kinda blue.

We never made it to Florida :cry: but we were in Cabo the week before for 7 days and it was glorious.

Cool to see another contest around. Unfortunately I've no time these days to enter myself. So good luck to all the other writers and gratulations to Blue Thunder Army (hope I remember right) for winning the True Crime Story contest!!!
It's so cool that you give some of your art to fans via contests like these, although you could just sell it on ebay or so.
When Cat Power asked "What would the community think?" I'd say that your community should be really satisfied :-)

Rapture is ordered and I'm excited what awaits me behind the mindblowing cover...
