Up Down

Update: This giveaway is now over. Stay tuned! Also, feel free to enter one of our currently running giveaways.

Update 2: The winner has been announced.

Here’s the weekly giveaway!

Following up on our Black History Month feature Celebrating Milestone Comics, I’m proud to be giving away a copy of Hardware: The Man In The Machine.

It’s the first trade collecting the Hardware ongoing series, containing some sterling work. Obviously, the character is a bit of an Iron Man style superhero, but he brings unique sensibility and personality to the tin-man powerset.

The title is both enjoyably nineties and above much of the superficial nature that troubled superheroes of the era.

To learn a bit more about Milestone comics, check out our previous feature!

The Rundown:

(1) Prize: One copy of Hardware: The Man In The Machine

(1) Random Comment Winner: One logged in commenter will be randomly selected from the replies to 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 Friday, February 11th, 2011.

Good luck everyone!

    So Cool! Great to see this up as a giveaway after peaking our interest in Hardware and Milestone comics.

    Lucky you I accidentally ordered two copies a few months past :D

    Hehe. Glad I’m not the only one who does that sometimes. Don’t you just hate when that happens? Especially if you’re on a budget, which I am. But anyway, it just goes to show you that you’re a good man, Charlie Brown, to give away trades like this. What a great idea this one is too, considering your previous post for Black History Month. I didn’t know anything about these books until I read your blog post. Great job.

    Ian, one man’s accident is another man’s free trade. Nice going. :D

    This sounds pretty interesting. I didn’t really know much about Milestone before your post the other day, but now I’m pretty interested to check out Static Shock, Hardware, and the rest.


    Ian replied on February 5th, 2011 at 3:53 am:

    If you get the chance to, let me know what you think.


    Marc replied on February 5th, 2011 at 4:06 am:

    I definitely will. I was especially interested in the newer Static Shock trade since it has issues from both the original series and one of the newer series.


    Ian replied on February 5th, 2011 at 4:11 am:

    At the very least, a bargain, because the first edition with just four issues has gone up in price. I couldn’t help hunting down a copy anyway, a little while back.

    Definitely seems worth a read, I’d like to check it out.

    That really sounds really interesting…really! I liked your article about the month of black history and Milestone, and I think it’s only adequate if those two are celebrated in the universe of comic-art – why not with a free giveaway? ;)

    Sweet! sounds awesome

    I cannot help but consider this with some trepidation.


    Ian replied on February 5th, 2011 at 9:44 pm:

    fair enough. that cover does have a lot of very strange abdominal muscles.


    jonah_X replied on February 6th, 2011 at 10:27 am:

    True that.

    I don’t know much about this book but, the plot seems ironic enough that i would have to try it.


  9. Dan M. wrote on at February 6, 2011 4:27 pm:

    Never really read any Milestone books, but I liked McDuffie’s work on Justice League (the series, not so much the comic).


  10. Robert2 wrote on at February 7, 2011 11:08 pm:

    I’ve wanted to pick this one up since it got reprinted. I’ve been told that it is one of Milestone’s best.


  11. SKleefeld wrote on at February 8, 2011 9:25 am:

    I’ve never really had the chance to read through the Milestone stuff, though I’ve perennially heard good things. Would love see this in person.


  12. henraldo wrote on at February 13, 2011 1:51 pm:

    It was ok. I read some of it when they did crossovers with regular DC in the 90s


    Ian replied on February 13th, 2011 at 6:32 pm:

    The crossover wasn’t really the top level stuff, I think. Those first few arcs though are great.
