WIN! This Darksiders Replica Sword And A PS3

war pose darksiders compIn Darksiders, the hero - War, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse - crushes angels and demons alike with his mighty sword, the Chaoseater. I bet you'd like to win your own replica Chaoseater. click through to find out how.

Thanks to the lovely people at THQ, we have this stunning Chaoseater replica sword (seen in-game above and in real life below, click to enlarge) and a PlayStation 3 console (of the 120GB Slim variety) to giveaway. The sword is one of only 70 made worldwide to promote Darksiders and stands at four foot in length, from hilt to tip.

One lucky Kotaku reader will walk away with the sword and the console. But how?

Sword photo3Darksiders is from the mind of legendary comic artist Joe Madureira. So it makes sense that we'd ask you to make your own comic to enter this competition. What kind of comic? The only restrictions are that it must be three panels (like any good comic), it must feature the Chaoseater sword (or your best artistic approximation) and it must reference the Apocalypse.

Other than those ground rules, the rest is up to you. Your comic can be hand-drawn or computer illustrated, it can use photos or even screenshots from the game. We're looking for the best comic, maybe it makes us laugh, maybe it makes us think, maybe - just maybe - it makes us cry.

You've got another twelve days to get your entry in, as the competition closes on Wednesday, January 6, the very day before the game comes out. Submit your entry to the usual address.

No multiple entries, people. You've got to nail it in one.

Good luck!

      Heh, this is a tad ironic.

      Thanks a bunch!

      I, uh, haven't actually started sketching mine yet. I'll start tonight, I promise. ;)

    That is one badass prize. I unfortunately, as a musician, am completely visual arts challenged, and would be forced to create a Darksiders Stick Figures with various physical deformities comic - although I could probably do well on the "it makes us cry" part.

    I do, however, wish all of you artistic types the best of luck, as whoever wins that gains instant geek cred.

    Got mine in 2 days ago, i love competitions like this, because even if you don’t win you still get to see the other entries, doing this same thing for the monster hunter comp was heaps of fun.

    You fool! Such a brilliant idea, and you shared it with the world!

    You better execute it damn well. :)

    Just got mine in :D

    Can't wait to see everybody else' comics.

    Great comp, can't wait to see the other entries
