Have you always dreamed of creating a superhero comic?

A new contest gives up-and-coming artists an opportunity to be heard — and cool incentives to participate.

Audi and Marvel have just launched, a site that features an original Iron Man comic. The twists in each installment are determined by social-media vote, and on April 22, fans are invited to submit an original (drawn or photographed) final panel.

You can read the first couple chapters now and start thinking about a grand finale. Two finalists will receive Iron Man 3 posters signed by the film’s cast, while a grand prize winner gets a trip to Comic-Con and his/her artwork reviewed by a top Marvel editor.

I know we have a bunch of talented folks reading this blog, so get crackin’ and good luck! In the coming days, the site will post tips on how to draw the superhero.
