Weekly Trivia Challenge: June 1-7 (Bonus Edition)

Postby maichan » Mon Jun 01, 2015 22:06 +0000

Somehow I won last weeks bonus trivia... and apparently now it's my turn to come up with something for this week.

Gaffey's question is the official question for this week and mine is the bonus question. The prize for this bonus question is bragging rights. :wink:

My question is illustrated. I have cropped three images. Careful examination should give you some clues.

Your task is to tell me the character and the story. If you can pinpoint the exact page & panel, you get extra credit.

Please PM me your answers. I'll give clues as needed.
I will post everyone's answers at the end of the week.

That was fun. It gave me something to do while eating my oatmeal.

FYI: My Calvin and Hobbes question was supposed to be for you.

I worded that poorly. The second question was asked on your behalf.

If nobody gets my trivia questions correct maybe you could award a winner for your question?

Then we should be back on track.

We've received one guess so far.... any others?



Clue 1
The contest runs from JUNE 1 - 7 (or 6, 1, 7). This clue should make it easier to find where the images are from, otherwise it might be hard to cover all the possible individual comic book issues to check. Of course you could also trade this clue for some paper before turning your back on FANTAGRAPHICS.

Since there is no prize for this question, I'll try to make it easier.... maybe too easy?

CLUE 3

I will tell you the title of the stories.

WIND OVER THE TOMBSTONES

BLIND SWORDS-PIG!

LADY ASANO'S REVENGE


Now see if you can figure out the character, and maybe the page the illustration comes from..... :D

Someone has done it already, so I'm sure other members can too. :wink:

Well, well, well.... no more guesses from members? :?
Time is running out!
Even though there is no prize for this contest, the winner does still get a chance to be entered into the running for the monthly prize package, so why not give it a shot?

Final Clue

CLUE 5

The stories are in these Trade paperbacks & Hardcovers... Books 1, 6 & 7 - tell me the character and the story. Extra Usagi points if you can tell me the comic book issue number and can pinpoint the exact page & panel.

Who could these characters be? I bet they are one of these...

And so the June 1 - 7 Bonus Edition of the Weekly Trivia Challenge has come to a close.

There was only one answer submitted. I'm not sure if the lack of response was because my question was too hard, or because there was no prize involved.... :oops:

The winning answer was sent in by...... none other than, Gaffey!
Gaffey's answer was submitted in a record time of 16 hours after I posted the question.
Congratulations Gaffey, you win bragging rights and 1685 Usagi points!
Gaffey will also be entered into the monthly contest.

The contest answers were:

Jotaro in CIRCLES CHAPTER 1: WIND OVER THE TOMBSTONES - USAGI YOJIMBO Volume 1, Issue 28; page 18 / panel 4 (Usagi Yojimbo Book 6)

Thanks Maichan! It was a good trivia challenge. I just didn't have time to look it the issues this week. I appreciate you putting this together.

I would have entered, but I only recognized one of the pictures (the one from volume one issue #7). Good trivia challenge, though!

Can these points be traded in for friends? As you can see I don't have much of a social life. :lol:

Seriously, I thought it was fun.
