As you may have noticed, things are getting a lot more interactive around here! We really want everyone to treat us not just as a source of news, reviews, humor, and commentary, but also as a community. Whether this is your first visit to the site or your hundredth, we want your involvement.
The newly implemented IntenseDebate commenting system allows for quicker moderation of comments to keep the conversations flowing. The Recent Reactions scroll on the front page also displays up to date highlights of what’s being talked about. The Punchtab rewards system you’re seeing isn’t just clutter or some kind of random advertising – it’s powering another one of our revamped features: prizes! Yes, contests are becoming a way of life around here! Our latest focused on the newly released Mankind.
This past month I’ve had the pleasure of writing about a unique team up between Zenescope Entertainment and History. History began a new series called Mankind: The Story of All of Us, which, in their words, is “an epic 12-hour television event about the greatest adventure of all time – the history of the human race.” I resisted the urge to go overboard on the glowing speeches, and didn’t resort to saying something like “Mankind is a series about how we are all the true superheroes,” but it really was kind of astounding to be reminded just how far we’ve come and how innovative we can be as a species.
Our tale is enlivened by the partnership with Zenescope, which helped publish a comic book counterpart under their all ages Silver Dragon imprint. Yes, the comic company famously known for wrapping its stories with provocative cover art has an all ages imprint – no snickering! To celebrate this event, we partnered with Zenescope to award one lucky fan with a signed and CGC graded exclusive copy of one of the first issues. The comments, social media shares and such from the related articles were tallied, and from those results a winner was randomly chosen! Congratulations Bryan Crawford! The details on how to claim your prize have been sent to you!
