On his blog, C.B. Cebulski announces that he’s running a contest related to the first issue of Loners, which is due in stores tomorrow:
Well, they say that writers should write what they know, and I like to think I know food… so when I write comics I toss in little references to certain meals and restaurants I enjoy. I try and squeeze a few quick nods into my books whenever I can. And Loners #1 is no exception! Contrary to popular belief, Los Angeles has some excellent eateries and as that’s where Loners takes place, you’ll see some of my favorite LA restaurants popping up in the book every now and again.
When you read issue one, on sale April 11th, you’ll notice I clearly name drop my beloved In-N-Out Burger in there. That’s a constant in the entire series actually. However, there’s also a subtle tribute somewhere in the first issue to another one of my favorite L.A. hangouts.
So what I’m doing is running a LONERS FOOD FIND contest. I’m offering a free pile of swag to the first five people who can correctly identify the other restaurant referenced in our debut issue. Come Wednesday, the first five people who BUY THE ISSUE, which you will be asked to prove, and e-mail me the name of the joint in question, will get an envelope stuffed with all kinds of signed comics and goodies, with a few extra surprises thrown in to boot! Sound good? I’m at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m right there with C.B. on In-N-Out Burger … I wonder if the Loners are aware of In-N-Out’s secret menu; I highly recommend the Neapolitan shake.
