ABOUT THE CONTEST
Lethal, agile, nigh-indestructible, motor-mouthed and just a little bit off his rocker (Okay, a LOT off his rocker...): Wade Wilson is a comic-book anti-hero unlike any other, and his adventures in the pages of Marvel comics have commanded an incredibly dedicated group of fans who just can't get enough Deadpool! Long one of our best-selling characters at WeLoveFine, Deadpool is second to none for opportunities to be creative and have fun with his outlandish bad-assery, and so we're stoked to bring you our first-ever Deadpool Design Contest! Dig into the mercenary depths of your noggin and come up with some dazzling Deadpool designs, and you could win a trip to this year's New York Comic Con in Manhattan!! Or one of the judges' prizes chosen by the current writers of Marvel's Deadpool comics! And have your design made into official Marvel merchandise, to boot. Bust out the tacos and go to town on this one, artists... good luck!

Hot Topic: It all started in 1988. A ton of teen retail accessory stores filled the malls, but there wasn't a cool music-inspired accessory store for both guys and girls. Then came Hot Topic. As 1990 rolled around, adding apparel seemed like a no-brainer. What better way than to add the ultimate music fan essential - band tees. Imagine how our customers flipped when they were able to get Bauhaus, The Cure, TSOL, and Depeche Mode T-shirts at Hot Topic. Within a year, we had about 50 different band titles, along with rock-inspired clothing lines like Lip Service and Serious. As we expanded, we discovered that customers were equally drawn to the underground cartoon, cult movie, and comic book scenes. It was a unique culture fans could call their own, so we brought the world of South Park, Care Bears, Superman, SpongeBob and tons of other pop icons into our Hot Topic stores.

- Your design has inappropriate materials.
- Your design uses other copy righted material. This means you are using other people’s intellectual property in your design you do not have the right to. NO MASH UPS!!!
