Ramona’s necklace

Q. Bryan help, is the thing on Ramona’s neck a necklace/chocker or the little collar/hem of her shirt?

A. The thing around Ramona’s neck is and always has been a little string/shoelace thing that is double wrapped and tied. It’s just a line that goes around her neck twice, basically.

in the movie it’s like a little double leather string choker thingy with a clasp at the back.

but hey, in the coloring contest lots of people are successfully turning it into a t-shirt or a collar or all sorts of fun things.

i hope it’s abundantly clear that i’m just doing this whole contest thing by myself. No oversight from my publisher or tumblr or like my mom or anything.

im just clicking on stuff personally. i’m seeing all of your awesome work and i’m so proud!!! and only one person has trolled me so far! (that isn’t an invitation for more; anyway tumblr is awesome for getting rid of annoying ppl)

just FYI, i’ll be at Comic Con for most of next week, so i’ll likely fall behind a bit on the entries. There are already soooo many good ones, I definitely have a few frontrunners picked out, but keep on submitting, I love seeing them!

#AltRamonaContest Question

Q. mister radiomaru, how do you pick the winners of this contest? is it randomly? based on talent? originality? whoever’s got the best sob story?

A. I’m probably going to get like seven million entries. I will try to factor in all of the elements (good-looking colors / originality / sob story) when I select the three winners.

Follow altramonacontest.tumblr.com and like the ones you like! I won’t be able to put them ALL up (because I’ll get too many entries!) but I’ll put up lots of ones that I’m enjoying.

Q. Comic Con is next week and all I’m thinking about is ‘I can be that one girl from Seconds even though I have no idea who she is. That’s not weird.’ Tell me that’s not weird. -pulls denim shorts out of closet- -yells about white high-tops-

A. it’s not inconceivable, I guess. I never thought of her as a character that people would rush to dress up as, but she’s got pretty simple ‘fashion rules’: she has lots of black hair, she always wears black tights and oversized tops, and she either wears white chucks or boots (the story takes place in winter).

The problem with cosplaying her is that she’s just a normal girl and nobody would recognize you (probably not even me). but it can be a cosplay in your brain, i guess……?

if you dress as her, come show & tell me about it and i’ll secretly whisper her name in your ear.

here’s an early sketch of her wearing a trendy Nirvana t-shirt.

SCOTT PILGRIM COLOR EDITION: FAQs for the 4th of july
Q. Will there be a Collector’s Edition for each volume of Scott Pilgrim Color Edition?

A. Yes, that’s the plan. 
Q. Can I get a ‘regular edition book’ with the collector’s edition? I like the Scott cover better.

A. I don’t think you can swap the book out, but I have to tell you that the back cover of the Evil Edition shows the full Scott art from the regular edition (ie there’s no text on the back cover, just a huge picture). It looks really cool. I don’t have a photo in front of me, you’ll just have to believe me. If you really want the Scott cover, maybe you can swap with a friend who wants the Patel cover later!!!
Q. Will the color edition be coming out in the UK? Spain? Mexico? Brazil? Germany? Etc? 

A. We are still talking to the international publishers but hopefully I’ll know more very soon!
Q. Is the Collector’s Edition exclusive to Comic Con? Can I get it online??

A. As the original post said, copies of Collector’s Edition are being reserved for sale on onipress.com beginning August 8, 2012! Both the Evil Edition and Collector’s Edition will DEFINITELY be available for sale online on that day, although the Collector’s will probably sell out pretty quickly (there will be no more than 500 copies for online sale).
Q. Will onipress.com ship worldwide?

A. Whether you can order it from your country depends on the publishing deal in your country, which is still being worked out (see previous question). I’ll try to let everyone know before August 8th.
Q. How much does the ‘regular’ Color Edition cost?

A. The normal (hardcover, 6”x9”, full color) edition comes out on August 8th and will be $24.99; the Evil Edition (same but with a special cover) is $40 and only available at conventions or via onipress.com (also as of August 8th).
Q. What about digital? Can I get it on ipad? kindle? etc?

A. The color editions will definitely be available via Comixology, which is available on many platforms. I’m not sure about other methods yet and I don’t know the pricing yet!
