Up Down

Update: This giveaway is now over and winners will be contacted.

Update 2: The winners have been announced!

Here’s the weekly giveaway!

Hey, it’s Christmas this week! And nothing says Christmas like a post-earthquake Gotham City hellhole.

So I’m giving away the critically acclaimed Batman: No Man’s Land Vol. 1 through Vol. 5 to one lucky yuletime kid.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a kid to enter. (I’m not.)
Nor do you have to celebrate Christmas. (I’m Jewish.)

You just have to want it bad enough.
(And leave a comment and be randomly chosen.)

But if you don’t get chosen, don’t cry yet. I’ve also got four copies of
Ghost Rider / Wolverine / Punisher: Hearts Of Darkness
(which we previously reviewed.)

So four runners-up will each get a copy of that 90s gem. Or, if you hate Batman or something, you can choose to get the Marvel book instead.

Are you excited? I’m excited. It’s a big stack of comics.
And nothing goes with eggnog like Batman.

(Or, if you’re Jewish, nothing goes with cold morning Chinese leftovers like Ghost Rider.)

The Rundown:

(1) Main Prize: Set of Batman trades: Batman: No Man’s Land Vol. 1, Vol. 2, Vol. 3, Vol. 4, and Vol. 5. Over 1000 pages of comics including some hard to find out of print volumes.

(4) Runners Up: Ghost Rider / Wolverine / Punisher: Hearts Of Darkness Original Graphic Novel

(5) Winners: One primary, and four secondary, randomly selected from the comments on this post.

Eligibility: You must be registered and logged in when you comment to be eligible. You must also be in the continental USA for shipping purposes. If you are overseas and want to pay for the shipping yourself, feel free to enter, but keep in mind that it will probably be more expensive than just buying the book.

Deadline: You have until 11:59 on Christmas Eve, Friday, December 24th, 2010. The winners will be contacted soon after.

Good luck everyone!

    Interesting site. Joined to enter the contest, but love the reviews.
    Batman No Man’s Land in trades…yes please. Loved the singles.. been a while since i’ve read them , but the collected trades would make for a much easier read (and look better on my book shelf).

    Thanks! Glad you’re enjoying them.

    And I’m all about bookshelves myself. Longboxes just aren’t nearly as accessible to non-superfans, while anyone can walk into a room with bookshelves and get intrigued.

    I just finished reading the novelization of this the other day – great story. Besides, who doesn’t love freebies?

    [Reply]

    avatar Ian replied on December 21st, 2010 at 7:56 pm:

    I’m always kind of surprised to hear the novelizations are actually worth reading. Weird, considering how much of a geek I am, and the fact that I read the Magic The Gathering books…

    [Reply]

    avatar Steve M. replied on December 21st, 2010 at 8:04 pm:

    I was pleasantly surprised in this one, though it’s written by Rucka, and I’m a big fan of his novels too. It leaves some stuff out, I’ve seen Azrael on covers of some of the No Man’s Land issues but he isn’t even mentioned in the novel.

    [Reply]

    avatar Ian replied on December 21st, 2010 at 8:05 pm:

    yeah, it would have to – I think there were over 80 titles that sported the original banner. Only about half are collected, and that’s still 5 thick trades.

    Just found out about this offer via Kleefeld, and figured I might as well give it a shot. I’ve already read this extremely successful crossover event, but my sister is woefully ignorant of this. I’ve often recommended it to her, but have been unable to do so, since finding anybody who has trades of this series is incredibly difficult. Even accounting for the “weak” third book, it’s still a great read.

    Sharing is what it’s all about, my friend. That being said, you’ve got to be logged in when you comment in order to be eligible – otherwise your user id doesn’t show up! You can go ahead and leave a reply to this one, and then you’ll be entered.

    Kleefeld pointed me to this site and I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time. I very much appreciate the work you put into this and will be referring to it for as long as the site is around (which I hope is forever)!

    Thanks!
