Hey, True Believers.

X-Men: Days of Future Past may be the movie that made $111 Mil this Memorial Day weekend, but once upon a time it was known as issues #141 and #142 of The Uncanny X-Men. In honor of this legendary title’s silver screen debut, Crowdtap and Midtown Comics are partnering to offer you the chance to win Stan Lee and Chris Claremont signed copies of these comics.

Follow these instructions to enter and win the contest:

1) Go to Crowdtap’s contest page.

2) Click the ‘Get Started’ button, and if you are not already a member, register for the site.

3) Correctly answer each trivia question.

4) Complete the X-Men themed “Photo Challenge” with a creative, original submission.

And that’s it! There are also runner-up prizes available in the form of movie t-shirts and more.

Good luck!

2014 Midtown Exclusives:

What’s special only at Midtown:  This year we are thrilled to present our very own versions of the Free Comic Book Day book Future’s End from DC Comics and the Armor Hunters Special from Valiant Entertainment! Both feature the Midtown Comics logo and are ONLY available through Midtown Comics!

Future’s End is the place to jump on board DC Comics’ epic weekly series featuring tomorrow’s Dark Knight, Batman Beyond (making his first appearance in The New 52), battling an army of cyborgs to avert an Apocalypse in the future which could destroy the DC Universe of the present!

Armor Hunters features a group of the universe’s fiercest warriors, that have come to destroy the X-O Manowar for the good of all. What horrible secrets does the armor hold? And how many armors have they destroyed before this one? These answers and more are revealed in the Valiant Universe event of 2014 – and it all starts right here with exclusive previews, character designs, and interviews from the biggest guns the Valiant Universe has to offer!
