Skultar Chooses His Next Victim…
So, at the beginning of last month, we told you all about the White Elephant Music Club’s first songwriting challenge. You remember that, right? Oh, we know you do, because we scared the fluids right out of your nether regions when we announced it. Since the prizes include a visceral death at the hands of Skultar in his upcoming graphic novel, it was no surprise that the White Elephants got some great submissions. Good on all of you, you weak and pathetic bards! Skultar told me personally he was so inspired by the contest, he’d considered picking up a Gibson Flying V and writing his own awesome theme song. Lucky for the contestants, though, Skultar opted not to do so, because he realized playing guitar and ripping metal riffs would only get in the way of all the murdering.
All that being said, we here at ComicMix would like to congratulate the winner, Chris Cogott, for his winning tune, the aptly named “Skultar.” The contest was judged by our friend Russ Rogers, Mark Wheatley (Skultar’s co-creator), and Julia Sherred.
Since the White Elephant Music Club is totally rad, you can visit their bandcamp page and download the entire album of finalists for free! In addition to Cogott’s winning tune, you’ll get an awesome metal romp from Kevin Savino-Riker (“Skultar’s Blade”), a hilarious spoken-word comedic piece by JoAnn Abbott (“The Ballad of Skultar“), a lounge-lizard schmoozefest from the well-named wait, WHAT? (“S-K-U-L-T-A-R“), and more! And for the price (ahem, FREE!), you can’t beat it. We suggest you hop over, download the tunes, pop ’em in your iPod, and go pillage a village. Hmm, that rhymes. Now, all I need is some murderous riffs, and I’ve got an instant classic.
Take it away, Skultar!
