Anyway, enough about my high opinion of myself. As a celebration of my blogiversary (a term I only use ironically, since it is stupid), I'm going to give away some comics. Specifically, I've come into possession of two extra copies of the first volume of Moyasimon (which I reviewed here), and I figure it's better to get them into the hands of someone who might want to read them than languish unread on my shelves.
So, here's the self-serving terms of the contest to win a copy: send me something that I can use on the blog. I'll take anything, whether it's a picture (something you drew (anything Jack Kirby- or Groo-related is always a good choice), or an image from a comic (or elsewhere) that might be something to put on the sidebar), a banner logo (width 800 pixels, height 500 pixels or less), a background image, a joke, a comment about something I've written or something I might like, a pull quote about the blog (even a negative one, so I can manipulate it with ellipses to try to make it sound positive), or even, if you want to really do some work for me, a guest review. Whatever you like, email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by, let's say December 1, unless I decide to extend the deadline. We'll see who replies, and if I get more entries than expected I'll add some other prizes, since I've got plenty of other books that I could get rid of.
But even if nobody bothers to enter, I still appreciate everybody who reads my inane ramblings, and even if I don't reply to every comment, I read them all, and thank you for dropping by and letting me know what you think. I enjoy the hell out of blogging, reading and examining comics and talking about them, and especially interacting with others who are as passionate about this little hobby of ours as I am. It's been a great ride so far, and hopefully it will continue for a long time to come.
