Comic Book Giveaway!

Did you miss out on Free Comic Book Day last month? Well don't worry, our friends at JC Comics and Cards put some exclusive FCBD goodies aside for us, and we've decided to share them with our fans in honor of our three month anniversary this past week!  Click HERE to see the blog post again about FCBD and JC Comics and Cards.

Prize #1

The first item up for grabs is a hardcover anthology from Archaia Entertainment entitled Mouseguard, Labyrinth and Other Stories. It features six all-new, never-before-seen short stories from some of the industry's most talented graphic novelists. This collection is just as appealing to those new to the world of indie comics as it is to seasoned veteran collectors, and it was the first hardcover title produced for FCBD.

Prize #2 includes Adventure Time and Voltron.

Another lucky winner will receive a handful of FCBD exclusive individual issue comics.  Prize #2 consisting of Adventure Time, Voltron, The Hypernaturals, an anthology of excerpts from Image Comics, Superman Family Adventures, and Finding Gossamyr.

Prize #2 includes The Hypernaturals and the Image Comics anthology

Prize #2 includes Superman Family Adventures and Finding Gossamyr.

And, we're gonna throw in another: a children's coloring book Fight Global Warming with The Wild West C.O.W.-Boys of Moo Mesa.

Prize #2 includes coloring and activity book with store address on front cover.

  1. It's a close one, but I'm going to go with the Camp Crafty Mart piece. I attended this well-run and attended event and had a terrific time with my son. The write-up was pretty good too!

  2. The contest is now over. Thanks to everyone who participated. There was one entry on FB--Juniper wins the multi-set comic book Prize #2. For Prize #1, selected the number one from two valid entries--that makes Juniper the winner of Prize #1 as well. Thanks again to everyone who played along.
