The big Swamp Thing giveaway!

§ December 20th, 2004 § Filed under Uncategorized Comments Off on The big Swamp Thing giveaway!

Yes, it’s this little website’s very first contest, and, it should come as a surprise to absolutely no one, it’s for a Swamp Thing book! In particular, it’s for Swamp Thing: Bad Seed by Andy Diggle and Enrique Breccia, collecting the first six issues of the current series and setting up the character’s new status quo.

If you want to enter, all you have to do is send an e-mail to contest (at) telling me, in 25 words or less, why you, yes, you, would like to have a copy of Swamp Thing: Bad Seed. I will pick one winner, either by choosing the entry I like the most, or, if I’m too wishy-washy to narrow it down to one winner, by a random drawing. You have until Friday, December 31st, 2004, to enter, and results will be posted, hopefully, in the first week of the new year.

EDIT: 12/21: Ken at Ringwood has agreed to donate two more copies of Swamp Thing: Bad Seed for the giveaway!

Some rules and notes:

1. This contest is not associated with DC Comics, Warner Brothers, Diamond Comics, my employer, or your mom.

2. One entry per person, please.

3. This contest is not open to my fellow members of the Associated Comics And Pop Culture Webloggers of Ventura County, CA And Outlying Environs, because if one of them did win, well, how would that look?

4. If you are a winner and you live outside the U.S., the book will be shipped by air mail, but I am not responsible for any import taxes or whatnot. Item will be declared as a “gift,” with a value of $9.95.

5. Don’t send me your shipping address with your entry…if you’re a winner, I’ll contact you for your information.

6. By entering, you hereby agree not to complain if you don’t win.

7. I will reproduce the winning entry (or entries) on this site, unless you specifically ask me not to do so.

So there you go…to sum up: 25 words or less telling me why you want the Swamp Thing: Bad Seed trade paperback, sent to contest (at), on or before Friday, December 31st, 2004. So, get cracking!

Other contest-type thingies you should be aware of:

Dave at Yet Another Comics Blog is holding a matching-funds pledge drive for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund…not really a contest, but it is a worthy cause.

Johanna at Cognitive Dissonance is running a contest for a copy of the amusing graphic novel Owly (and for a copy of the mini-comic as well), details of which you can find right here.
