5 users (aka The Comics Team) will get 3 comics a week for one month. The 5 users will be required to create questions/answers in order to be eligible for the following month. Users will be determined by highest rep accrued in a month span.
- Users interested in receiving comic books will answer this question with their username, thus entering themselves for ongoing consideration for the grant. If at any time you wish to remove yourself from consideration, delete the answer with your name in it.
The Comics Team members who have met their question and answer requirement will be chosen to receive comics for the month. The remaining spots will be given to new or lapsed users, in order of the highest rep accrued in the previous month (track that here). 5 users will be chosen.
Every Monday of the month, I will email these 5 users (aka The Comics team) the list of comics being released that week (courtesy of iFanboy). Each user will select 3 comics.
For expediency and easiness sake, I would prefer to gift comics digitally through Comixology) when possible. If not, they will be shipped via Midtown Comics to Team members in the US and Reed Comics to Team members in the UK. If you do not live in the United States, please provide me with your local online retailer that we can order single issues through. If an online retailer is not available international team members may have to choose items from their country's Amazon in place of single issues. Sadly, reimbursements are no longer an option.
- Recipients will then have their assigned month to ask or answer a minimum of 7 questions in the comics, marvel-comics, dc-comics or any other comic publisher tag. Only questions in these tags count. If you notice that a question you are answering is a comic book question but is not tagged properly, tag it. Since it's unlikely that every issue will inspire questions, any comic book questions you ask or answer during this month count towards your 7. Writing a blog about comic books counts as asking 3 questions (we need blog content).
