I’m not talking about this kind of six pack, I’m afraid:
Or even this:
I’m giving away a six pack of comics. Brand new, all #1 issues from the recent DC relaunch.
ONE WINNER will get their grubby little hands on the six comics that I enjoyed most from the first 52 titles released – and yes, I have read all of the comics from the ‘New 52’.* The prize pack will consist of:
Wonder Woman #1, Batwoman #1, Batman #1, Animal Man #1 (you’ll actually get the 2nd printing of this one, which has a slightly different cover), Birds of Prey #1, and Justice League Dark #1.
(So, that’s two ‘Woman’ titles; two ‘Man’ titles; and two team books. I’m an equal opportunities comic book giver!)
“Why are you doing this giveaway, Kaz?” you might ask.**
Apart from being (slightly) crazy, I just want to share the comics love. Help my fellow human beings get their geek on. Drive someone else to start frequenting their LCS.*** Honestly, I’ve made no secret of how much I love comics, and how they’ve sort of shaped a huge part of my
life reading material during the past 30 years. Well, now I’m giving something back. To you! Aren’t you lucky? 😉
There were of course some other good DC comics released over the past month, along with plenty of cool comics from other publishers – but they weren’t all doing relaunches and new first issues. There have also been some pretty terrible comics in DC’s ‘New 52’ (again, just my very humble opinion as a lifelong
nerd reader of the medium). But I picked the six titles that I personally enjoyed the most, while also trying to include stuff that my blog readers might enjoy – the two lists were pretty much the same, so it worked out pretty well. If you like urban fantasy novels and mythology, I honestly think you’ll enjoy some – if not all – of these comics.
Leave me a comment telling me what comics you’ve read and enjoyed, either in the past or currently. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never read these kinds of comics before – you can still enter. In that case, just tell me why you’d like to win. Or something. Whatever, let’s talk comics! The giveaway will close end of the day Friday, October 14th and is open to all no matter where you live. I’ll announce the winner of the 6 issues soon after.
ETA: I’ve extended the closing date by a couple of days as more people seem to be discovering the giveaway a bit late.
*Apart from any of the Green Lantern titles. What? Don’t look at me like that. I’ve never been a fan of Green Lantern… Sorry.
**Okay, you might not.
