From time to time, we'll be giving lovely stuff to all of you so make sure you stay tuned because these will always go away quickly.

GIVEAWAY: Win a Pair of Tickets for The Darkness in London

in Giveaways

When I saw The Darkness 4 years ago at Gods of Metal in Milan, I experienced a life-changing moment. Justin Hawkins’ energy and connection with the crowd was like nothing I’d ever seen before. And I’ve seen a looooot of bands in my lifetime.

So I can tell you this much: The Darkness are the real fucking deal.

That’s why we’re beyond excited for The Darknesstival — yes an actual fan convention for all of us crazy rockheads out there. Yes, you’ve heard of fan conventions before, but let’s be honest — you mostly see them in TV show and film fandoms, right?

It’s kinda rare to see bands actually caring about their fans so much these days. Breathing an event like that to life is not an easy task. AT ALL. So extra points (+ love) to The Darkness for getting their priorities straight (aka their fanbase).


Okay, not let’s get to the GOOD STUFF. And by good stuff, we mean FREE STUFF FOR Y’ALL.

We are giving away THREE PAIRS of tickets for The Darkness live show.

The tickets don’t include access to the convention itself. They are tickets for the actual concert on December 18th, at The Indigo (O2). It’s pretty straight-forward to enter the giveaway below:

The competition ends this Friday (16/12) at 13:00 GMT.


p.s. Shoutout to the band’s management for the tickets.

GIVEAWAY: Comics, Poster Book + Keychains from Marvel/DC & More

in Giveaways

Yes, yes — our first official giveaway! First of all; Happy Free Comic Book Day! It’s that day of the year again where we, comic book lovers, storm out to our local comic book stores and grab selected comics…for free. There’s no catch. You can literally show up, take a few comic books and leave.


But that’s not the purpose of this day. We celebrate Free Comic Book Day for all the comic book stores out there. Sure, go ahead and grab the awesome free comics that the super talented creators made for you. However we strongly encourage you to use this day (well, not just this day but you get my point) to support your local stores. Keep them alive. Buy that limited edition Batman hard cover book you always wanted. Or that neat Flash back cover for your kids. It’s important to remember that comics aren’t only on the big screen. Comics were born on paper, created by overly creative people. Support them in any way you can.


So anyway, off to the interesting stuff. I visited my local comic book store today (5 minutes away, thank you universe) and it was packed. That made me so happy. Tiny place, filled with guys. I was the only girl in there. I tried not to freak out whilst trying to find my already low level social skills somewhere in my purse. I succeeded. Taken away by the distinct smell of fresh comics, I spent a solid good hour in there.

Propcake, from its very start, has been focused on people who like comics and/or appreciate the comic book community. That’s why I thought it’d be nice if the first giveaway of Propcake was full of superheroes.

Let’s see what I got for you.


OVERWHELMING, AMIRITE? Let’s see them in detail.


Iron Man Poster Book


This is pretty self-explanatory. Full of vibrant lovely posters thingy. Though I’m not sure I would use any of these on my wall (they’re too beautiful to tear away).


Iron Man & Captain America Keychains


I have the irrestistible urge to squeeze them but I won’t because I like you guys. I don’t want to ruin them.
