NYC – Holy Terror Signing

Frank Miller signs on Friday October 14, 2011 at 7:00 PM at the Barnes & Noble in Union Square.

There’s a deadly menace somewhere in Empire City and The Fixer only has until dawn to save his town – and civilization as we know it! Legendary Comics presents an all-out, head-busting, bone-breaking, neck-snapping brawl of a tale from the one of the most celebrated storytellers of the medium, Frank Miller. Years in the making, Holy Terror features a desperate and brutal quest of a hero as he is forced to run down an army of murderous zealots in order to stop a crime against humanity.

Meet The Author
Frank Miller is one of the seminal creative talents who sparked today’s onslaught of motion pictures featuring comic book characters and concepts. He single-handedly re-defined the presentation of comic book characters and heroic fiction with his grand-daddy of graphic novels, THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS. Then his graphic novels turned box-office hits, including 300 and SIN CITY (the film version of which Miller co-directed with Robert Rodriguez), proved that success does not always come wrapped in spandex. Miller also created RONIN, and wrote BATMAN: YEAR ONE, BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN and ALL-STAR BATMAN AND ROBIN THE BOY WONDER for DC Comics. At Dark Horse Comics, Miller wrote THE BIG GUY AND RUSTY THE BOY ROBOT, HARD BOILED, and MARTHA WASHINGTON. The motion picture, THE SPIRIT, marked Miller’s solo feature film directorial debut.

Legendary SnapTag Game at SDCC 2011 Prizes Include Signed Holy Terror and iPads

Legendary SDCC 2011

Press Release:

Legendary Entertainment Invites Fans to Play the “SnapTag Game” at Comic-Con: International 2011 San Diego

Legendary creates mass game play at Comic-Con challenging fans to find one another in a unique SnapTag Game. Winners rewarded with iPads, Legendary DVDs, and autographed first edition copy of Frank Miller’s “Holy Terror.”

San Diego, CA,  July 21, 2011

Legendary Entertainment, a leading media company with film, television and comics divisions, is offering Comic-Con attendees at the San Diego Convention Center from July 21-24, 2011, a unique mobile game to connect and engage with one another.

The centerpiece of the Legendary initiative at Comic-Con is the SnapTag™, a more accessible QR Code alternative, created by marketing technology companySpyderLynk. The object for Comic-Con fans is to use their phone to “snap and send” as many as 500 unique Legendary SnapTags displayed on the lanyard badges of other show attendees. Those with the most “snaps” at the end win.

The game is accessible to anyone at Comic-Con with a mobile phone. Fans snap and send a SnapTag over short code or email to activate participation. iPhone and Android users can download the SnapTag Reader app at the iPhone App Store and Android Market to activate participation with a scan. Custom responses are triggered confirming participation with each snap and send or scan.

How It Works

The first 500 attendees to come to the Legendary Pictures booth on July 21st will receive their own unique Legendary SnapTag lanyard. They then become a ‘Snapee’ in the race to collect the most Snaps – Snapees compete to get as many festival-goers as possible to snap and send or scan the SnapTag on their lanyard.

The ‘Snapee’ with the highest number of unique snaps from their lanyard tag will win the Grand Prize, which includes an iPad, a $500 gift certificate to iTunes, ten Legendary DVDs (Batman Begins, 300, The Dark Knight, Where the Wild Things Are, Watchmen, The Hangover, Clash of the Titans, Inception, The Town), two Holy Terror t-shirts by Graphitti, and an autographed first edition copy of Frank Miller’s Holy Terror (when available).

All other attendees can participate in the sweepstakes portion of the game by finding a ‘Snapee’ and capturing their SnapTag. Each SnapTag sent in counts as one entry. Winners of the 10 iPads will be randomly selected from the total combined entries of all participants.

“The SnapTag game gives Legendary an opportunity to go beyond their booth to engage fans and enhance the Comic-Con experience,” said Nicole Skogg, SpyderLynk Founder and CEO. “I am excited to see if anyone will capture each of the 500 SnapTags at the event.”

In addition to the sweepstakes entries, tumblers will be given out to Snappers each day while supplies last. Instructions to pick them up will be included in the text response to players.

Game play begins with the opening of the conference at 10am on July 21st, and ends on Sunday, July 24th at 12pm. Winners will be notified via email on Tuesday, July 26th. Game play is open to anyone ages 13 and up who are legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia.

For Official Rules, prices, offers, odds and how to enter without using a cell phone, visithttp://www.legendary.com/snaptags-legal. Participants will need to send and receive three mobile messages to enter the Sweepstakes. Entry via MMS messaging may not be available via all wireless carriers.
