Of course we have three times as many entries for a blasted Avengers book than we do for the one where I give away my comic book babies to you people. Of course we do. I’m not bitter; I accept that more people are going to be interested in what’s up with Wonder Man than anything I might create with my own blood, sweat, and tears. Really.
All joking aside, last week’s winner was…Zak, who suggested that Captain America, Falcon, Black Panther, Songbird, Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch would make a good lineup for Earth’s Mightest Heroes.
This week, we’ve got a new-ish graphic novel published by Fantagraphics, The Squirrel Machine by Hans Reikheit. It’s one of those books I think works best if you know nothing about its contents, but I’d describe it as rural-horror-meets-Arthur-Miller through a distinctly European sensibility. It’s beautifully drawn, disturbing and sad and you can read more on the Fantagraphics site.
How do you win this? Leave a comment with, and I’m going to be exceedingly random here, your favorite mammal that’s not a primate or conventional pet. (In other words, it could be a squirrel or blue whale but not Chris Sims.)
ANYWAY. Leave said comment before 12:01 AM on Saturday, April 24, 2010 to qualify and the winner will be chosen using Random.org’s random number generator. Previous entrants do, in fact qualify, because I’m such a nice fellow like that. Comments that don’t qualify (such as the person from the Harley Quinn contest a few weeks ago who just babbled about how great the Dodsons are without actually answering the very basic question provided) will be deleted.
Terms And Conditions:
Please note that because of shipping costs, this contest is for residents of the United States of America and Canada. You must leave your email address with your comment to qualify, as I’m not going to spend any time hunting down someone who didn’t want to be contacted about their amazing prize. One comment per person and yes, I will know if you cheat and will probably mock you in public.
