For everyone who won a prize during the Major Spoilers 100th Issue Extravaganza, you’ll be happy to know that the prizes are now boxed, and I’m heading to the post office now to see how much the shipping is going to set me back.

If you didn’t win a prize during the Major Spoilers 100th Issue Extravaganza, you still have a chance to participate in the Matthew Challenge!

The Matthew Challenge?

The Matthew Challenge!

During the intro to the Major Spoilers 100th Issue Extravaganza, Matthew rattled off 100 pop culture references.  List the source of those references (in order please) and send ’em in an email to

What do I win?

If you are the grand prize winner, you get a copy of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman Absoulte Edition Volume 2 – absolutely FREE!

The deadline to get your entry in is June 8, 2009.

Oh, and those that won prizes during the Major Spoilers 100th Issue Extravaganza might want to dig around in those boxes for two additional bits of Major Spoilers ephemera.

    oh, also, i’m gonna need the adress of the one who got the batman black & white, i have ‘things’ to ‘talk’ to him about.

    hehe, sorry, i’m a sore looser, i really wanted those. but since i have the memory of a fly i couldn’t remember that matthew was at least on the second show because i remembered right after hanging up the phone that he reviewed the damn jenna jameson book.

      One box was a set of mint in the box The Dark Knight Returns action figures. Can’t reveal what is/was in the other box(es?) as they may return in a future contest.

    Oh, I’ve got a mission ahead of me. But naysayers be damned, that poster will be filled with signatures by the end of the year!

    Here’s a hint about the Matthew Contest:

    The earliest reference dates back to approximately the 1920’s. The most recent is about three weeks ago. That gives you a 90 year window in which to work…

    You’re welcome.
