The off beat photo-based comic Alien Loves predator has reached it’s first anniversary of updating to the web. Bernie Hou’s comic depicts the movie characters “Alien” and “Predator” as roommates living in a Manhattan apartment together. With it’s clever use of action figure posing and photo manipulation ALP has been witty, fresh, and funny for a year now. To celebrate Bernie is announcing a new contest.
Here is a quote from the ALP site: “One year ago today I launched aLp with 22 episodes in the archive. In the past year I got a job, bought a house, had two kids – on the same freaking day – and even though I’m pretty much always half-asleep while I’m writing this nonsense, now pushin’ 150, you still come and you indulge me. Really, thanks… I couldn’t ask for cooler fans.
To celebrate the anniversary, I’m announcing the 2nd contest in 3 days… it’s the aLp Drawing in 2’s Contest. For the next 2 weeks, collaborate with 1 or 2 other people on a drawing of an undocumented scene from aLp, and you could be one of 3 winners to win an autographed 8×10 glossy print of a choice of episodes. Since the real slam-dunk, once-in-a-lifetime gold mine of this prize is my signature, I’ll be happy to sign other things you send me in the mail too. Including body parts. Go check out the contest details and have some fun.”
