MONSTER HEAD RACES IV - WIN A SIGNED MAIL-ORDER MYSTERIES BOOK


Hey there race fans! Welcome to Monster Head Races IV! Once again eight famous monster heads have gathered to race in a bracket style challenge.


In a moment you’ll get a chance to pick your favorite monster noggin that you think will win the race tournament. First, let’s take a look at the prize we’re giving away!

This year you have a chance at winning this -


It’s the soon to be released (Oct. 11) Mail-Order Mysteries: Real Stuff from Old Comic Book Ads! by Kirk Demarais! As an added bonus, the book will be signed by Kirk D. himself! This book is amazing and it will quickly take you back to simpler times. Back to when you dreamed of ordering X-ray specs, life-size monsters and Sea Monkeys, but never did. Kirk has tracked down these seldom seen mail-order artifacts and compares the actual items to the comic book ads. Here's the book trailer -



Also as an added bonus the winner will receive an autographed photo of Vlad!

Now for the rotten rules -

In the comments section below, enter the name of the Monster Head that you think will win the tournament.


Last year Dr. Phibes won and so he’s back to defend his MHR title! (An appropriate appearance during the Vincentennial!) You can leave your entry in the comment section using Blogger, Google, OpeID. If you choose to use the Name or Anonymous way to comment, be sure to add your email address with your selection.

You can only enter here at Weird Hollow in this post’s comment section. Please do not enter your selection at any of the other Neato Coolville sites.

Pick one of these Monster Heads - Dr. Phibes, Medusa, Martian, She-Creature, Blacula, Teenage Frankenstein, Headless Horseman and Phantom of the Opera.

You must have your selection posted in the comments section by Oct. 10 at 11:59 p.m. Central time to eligible.

Only one guess per person.

This contest is open to all ages and all countries.

All seven races were filmed a few days ago and no one knows the outcome of any race except for me the mayor and Vlad and we’re not telling a soul!

If more than one person picks the winning Monster Head, we’ll throw the names of the people with the winning Monster Head into a cauldron and Vlad will randomly pick a winner. If no one picks the winning Monster Head, then we’ll pick a name from everyone who entered the contest.

The first race will air on Tuesday, October 11 right here on Weird Hollow followed by the other races every Thursday and Tuesday.
