We’re having our first contest of the year! Aren’t you all excited?
Now this contest is all about Batgirl and comes in two parts:
1. New Readers
We have two trades of Batgirl Rising that we sold our souls to get. Comprising the first seven issues of Bryan Q Miller’s run – with art by Lee Garbett and a gorgeous Phil Noto cover – it tells the story of the newest Batgirl and how she came to hold the mantle.
What we want are people who haven’t read this before. We want people who are unfamiliar with Stephanie Brown as Batgirl. You don’t have to be new to comics, you can be familiar with Babara Gordon, Cass Cain, or any other label or title. If you’ve never read this Batgirl series and are willing to give it a chance, this contest is for you!
In return for a copy of Batgirl, you’ll be asked to provide a 300-500 word review of the book by the end of February, to be used on the site.
Interested? Comment here with ‘new reader’ and that you’d like in. We’ll randomly pick 2 people for this honour.
2. Old Readers
Okay, so ‘old’ isn’t the right word. But are you already reading Batgirl? Have you read at least a few issues but haven’t gotten all of them? Are you a huge fan who goes to your LCS every Wednesday to grab it?? Then do we have something for you.
The lovely Bryan Q Miller has decided to help us out here. He’s providing signed copies of Batgirl 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, RH, 15, 16 and likely a copy of 17 when it comes out (he’s all out of 14). One lucky reader will be chosen at random to receive these on the same deal. Read them, review them, provide us with a write up by the end of February.
Comment with ‘old reader’ and tell us your favourite scene or moment from Batgirl so far.
Oh, and if you already own these issues in the unsigned form? We ask that you pass them along to someone who doesn’t, to try and spread the Batgirl love.
Winners will be chosen this Friday at 7pm EST. So spread the word and get entering!
