Hey guys, a quick break from the norm in terms of news posts today,
because I have to tell you all about the
SCOTT PILGRIM/DRASTIC COMICS COMPETION BONANZA!!
If you haven't been reading Scott
Pilgrim, poor you. I have to say it is the warmest, funniest, most
genuine and lets face it, best thing I've read in years. Anyway, my plan
is to get everyone to read Scott Pilgrim because they deserve to. Maybe
I'm being too enthusiastic here, but people can't call themselves comic
book fans if they don't have Scott Pilgrim on their shelves.
So, here's the deal:
I have 5 copies of Scott Pilgrim Vol 3: Scott Pilgrim and The
Infinite Sadness to give away to 5 lucky competition winners.
So what you have to do is simple. Drop us an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me your best
comic book related story. I cannot stress enough that I am not looking
for fan fiction. If you have an anecdote that revolves around or just
happens to involve a comic in some tangent or other, that's what we want
to read. Also, bonus points for those who send in pictures of themselves
with the X4 hardcover. You poor gullible bastards. The closing date for
entries is Thursday the 6th of June, so get writing, true believers!!
I'll let Scott himself explain the premise of the book:
My name is Scott Pilgrim and I am Awesome
I am the Hero of a Book! A series of books, in fact. I'm 23 years old, I'm
in a band (we're not very good though), I'm "between jobs", and I've been
having girl troubles lately! See, I have this unfortunate tendency to get
into fights. Not like the kind where you yell and scream and throw dishes
or whatever. More like Street Fighter, I guess.
But hey! I'm pretty easygoing. I keep busy, and my friends keep me in
check. I figure my life isn't really that interesting. It's just a couple
of little battles with my new girlfriend's Seven Evil Ex-Boyfriends. And
maybe some other people are starting to get in on the action too. So what?
Doesn't this stuff happen to everyone?
I could just natter on about Scott, but
delights of the Free Comic Book Day edition of Scott Pilgrim
So why am I doing this? Because, plain and simple, Scott Pilgrim is
awesome. When I read this last year, as I a man of 22, it affected me in
nearly the exact same Dark Night Returns did ten years ago. And everyone
loves free shit and I can't think of a worthier prize other than the gift
of Scott Pilgrim.
Anyways, the winners will be announced here on the 8th of June, with that
