For everyone who has ever dreamed about being in the pages of a comic book - Mark Millar has a solution. He'll name a character after you in his new Image Comics series Starlight - for a price. To take him up on his generous offer, you'll first have to win a charity auction.

Helpfully, the character you would be naming has already created - so the question is, do you want to be this guy?

If it helps, he does seem to be a vampire.

The comic has already been acquired by Fox, with production on a film adaptation expected to begin by the end of 2014, so who knows, your name could even end up on the big screen!

You can reach the charity auction here, or if that doesn't appeal, there's more on the film adaptation to be found right here.

What do you guys think? Is this a great idea, or does it break down the walls of artistic integrity one brick too far? Would you pay to be a vampire version of The Fonz in one of Millar's comics? Let me know below!
