Win Justice League vs Suicide Squad #1 Chad Hardin Variants by M&M Comics

M&M Comics enjoyed the last contest and are back with their latest variant set for Justice League vs Suicide Squad #1 by Chad Hardin:

Here's some additional information straight from the horse's mouth:

  • We will have a 3000 run Full Color done by Chad Hardin, Jeremiah Skipper and Alex Sinclair.
  • 1500 run Penciled Variant done by Chad Hardin. This one really shows all the work Chad put in on the art.
  • 1000 run Killer Frost Full Color Virgin Variant. Look closely and you will see this cover has different art featuring Killer Frost in the upper left corner. This art is only available on the Virgin Variant, making it a variant to the variant and possibly one of the variants with the lowest print run for DC.

So there you have it, we have two sets to give away … One will go to a random comment in this thread while the other will go to whoever gives the best answer to M&M Comics' question:

From what we can see, Chad Hardin is not a household name yet. So how about = Who is Chad Hardin? Best answer wins.

    He is the new invented character of Scottish comedian Kevin Bridges, a la the style of Chad Hogan, except he is a whiskey drinking, hog riding, mighty Hell’s Angel on steroids!

    As always, awesome competition, love the covers and thanks M&M!

    Maybe not a household name but he had a long enough line at his table during C2E2 this year. Love seeing him doing a variant!

    Chad Hardin is related to the character “Biff Howard Tannen ” from the movie Back To The Future. Biff’s mom had an interracial affair and Chad Hardin was the result of that affair. Chad Hardin is basically a “Love Child” who is in need of therapy. He uses his art to escape the fulfill the void of not having his mother around.

    Chad Hardin is a great penciled, inker, and cover artist. European variants don’t usually sell in the states but the exception is Hardins Batman Eternal 19 cover which is highly sought after. He is an artist on the rise.

    One does not speak of who Chad Hardin is; that information is G-14 classified.

    Don’t know how Chad Hardin is, anyone can Google him and give a textbook answer. I’m really liking the creative responses to who is Chad Hardin. His art reminds me of Jim Lee’s work and that is pretty impressive.

    I started reading Harley Quinn with the Loot Crate special – Chad’s artwork caught my eye and made me want to see what else he had done as well as continue to read HQs current series. I enjoy the expressions he gives the characters.

    I’m not sure how the Suicide Squad stands a chance against the Justice League, let alone Superman, but I’m interested to see how the story plays out.

    As to who is Chad Hardin? Chad Hardin is credited as a penciler, artist, colorist, and inker for DC comics. The man has done it all. What has caught my attention about Chad’s artwork were two things: facial expressions and body proportions. It really helps engage the readers in picking up the issue.

    The man, the myth, the legend! Chad Hardin is the long lost son of Chuck Norris! An excellent commission artist who has done some fantastic work. He is so good at covers that instead of calling them Variants, we will soon be calling them Hardins! Cars look both ways before Chad Hardin crosses the street.

    Chad Hardin is the current artist on Harley Quinn and easily conveys Harley Quinn’s manic behavior with a touch of sanity and pinch of sweetness in his pencils.

    Chad Hardin is, as everyone knows, the long lost great -great- great grandson of notorious Wild West Gunslinger John Westly Hardin.

    The Western legend was known for his toughness, hence the famous quote:
    “John Wesley Hardin, so mean, he once shot a man just for snoring too loud!”

    Well, sir, seems Chad has inherited his legendary ancestor’s orneriness….Why, back in grade school, Chad once roughed up a kid for licking his ice cream too loud at lunch! He’s been known to drive cosplayers from his convention table with a mere glance of his icy stare! And he once forced comic artist Frank Cho to draw a nice sketch of Power Girl in a tasteful blouse!
    Yes, Chad Hardin is a force not to be tajen lightly ! Beware! Beware!

    You have to respect a guy who month in, month out, delivers a quality book. That’s something, as a fan, I can enjoy. Seeing the same artist do a long run on a book is impressive. Too many times, a guy will do the first 6 or 7 issues, then another artist is on the book.

    Also, CBSI is developing a great relationship with M&M comics! Stores like this are what bring the customers back each week. Keep it up!

    Chad was the fabled 8th Goonie. He would have joined his friends on their adventure but he had contracted mono from kissing Suzie Phillips during a very exiting round of spin the bottle. Despite missing out on the adventure of a lifetime with his neighborhood pals, the “killer-kiss” (as its known today) had confined him to his room for nearly 8 moths. The inevitable boredom lead Chad to pick up a pencil and sketch out his own adventures, leading him to the life that he has today.

    Chad was this fat kid in fourth grade that used his fat like The Blob from the X-Men to pick on me. I have no idea why, but he used to ONLY go after my milk and sandwich, but only if the sandwich had mayo on it. The mayo thing was really weird. I always imagined him in the mop closet licking the it off the sandwich. Anyway, his best effort was the day he brought an M80 firecracker to school. He lit it and threw it at me. I dove for cover just in time, but when it blew it shot a little rock up Lindsay Stevens’ skirt and the rock literally got stuck in her butt. She had to go to the school nurse’s office so the adults could remedy the situation. Really messed up.

    But that couldn’t be the same Chad. Could it?

    Many thanks M&M!

    Chad Hardin is the guy I used to share a tiny room at the WMCA with in San Diego to attend Comic-Con back when he was drawing The Spirit for DC. Contrary to claims he later made on Facebook, we did NOT spoon.

    I think Chad gave Harley a very unique look that will stay in minds for long. I´m pretty sure his incarnation of Harley will be seen in any documentation that will show the progress of the character in the future.

    Plus he has mad skillz for comissions. I even had the chance to see him here in germany and he is a great guy!

  • gooniecomics

    I knew Hardin was working Harley Quinn with Palmiotti and Conner, but I didn’t realize he was the long lost son of chuck norris, a living legend and the most interesting man in the world. These answers are awesome

    Chad Hardin is like a human “Dab”. That’s right. Think about it for a minute and you’ll be saying, “Oh yeah, he IS like a human “Dab”! Now stand up and dab and say Chad’s name at the same time and try not to laugh. You can’t. It’s truth, and it’s friggin hilarious. Chad “Dab” Hardin, I gotta get you to do me a cover with Harley “dabbing”. I would seriously dab out if you, human dab man, hooked that up. Hot Dab!!!!!

    If I was eating breakfast at a diner and was asked to pull out Chad Hardin’s wallet out of a bag, I’d pull out the one that says Bad Mother Fucker!

    Trying to restart a career once mired in family television dramatic shows as “You never live once” and the oft panned comedic flop, ” Oh no you didn’t!!”, Chad Hardin is now found busily drawing with his right index finger on his new Windows Surface tablet for DC Comics.
