Update: Winners are currently being contacted! Stay tuned to find out if you’re one of them!
Update: Winners have been announced. Congratulations!
Alright TPBros, check this one out:
To welcome us to the net and congratulate us for reaching 100 users, Heavy Ink has agreed to send copies of Superman: Whatever Happened to The Man Of Tomorrow to five lucky Trade Reading Order site users.
First of all, some of you may not be familiar with Heavy Ink. It’s a rare thing: a fan driven online comic store with a forum, user home pages, etc. Every issue is at least 20% off and shipping for graphic novels and orders of at least three comics is just 99 cents. You can just use the forum or just buy your issues there.
Which is great, because that means you get free books and I don’t have to buy them, cover shipping, or wait in line at a smelly post office. Win – Win – Win, right?
They’ve even hinted that if this goes well, we’ll be making a regular thing of this. Coupled with the giveaways I’ve already got planned, that might get us set for a year of weekly giveaways!
I’m super stoked, because my second favorite thing after sorting books is giving books. It’s all about enabling other people’s geeky vices.
Now that the little introduction to Heavy Ink is out of the way, let’s get to the meat of this particular giveaway.
(1) Trade Paperback of Superman: Whatever Happened To The Man Of Tomorrow Each
Five of you each get a copy of this book shipped directly to your door. I bet they will look something like this:
This is a collection of some of the absolute best Superman stories, penned by comic’s mad hermit scribe, Alan Moore. The cover is by Brian Bolland and the book includes work by Curt Swan, Dave Gibbons, and Rick Veitch.
Not only does this book include two of the most famous Supes stories (“Whatever Happened To The Man of Tomorrow” and “For The Man Who Has Everything”) they also threw in the exceptional issue of DC Comics Presents with my favorite character of all time: Swamp Thing.
Ok, are you quaking in your boots and wondering exactly how you win a copy?
