reminder: enter the secret identities superhero contest!

The 2009 San Diego Comic-Con, the massive annual pop-culture geekfest, kicks off today and runs through the weekend. As I mentioned before, the Secret Identities crew will be at the Con in full effect. If you're planning on going, be sure to stop by the Secret Identities booth (#1735).

I also wanted to remind you that the Secret Identities Asian American superhero contest is still going on, and runs through the end of the month. I've partnered up with Secret Identities for a very cool contest, asking you to dream up your very own Asian American superhero.

We're challenging you to submit your own idea for a unique and original Asian American hero. I'll pick the ten coolest submissions, then the Secret Identities editors will choose their three favorite heroes, each of whom will get their superhero idea rendered by a Secret Identities artist, and also receive a signed copy of the book.

To enter, please include a description of the hero (physical description, origin, powers, background, goals and nemesis) in 500 words or less. Thumbnail sketch optional. Email your entry, along with your contact info, to secretidentities@angryasianman.com by July 31. Winners will be announced on August 1.

We've received some really cool entries so far, but you still have the chance to throw in your own superhero. Be creative, and have fun!
