About Comics is offering a 24-page blank comic book. They’re suggesting using it to create your own comic, or some kind of sketchbook, or a notebook you can file with your comics. But there’s got to be more uses, and they want to hear your suggestions.
Email your idea to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 20. Be sure to include your name, address (U.S. and Canada only), and the name of your favorite comic shop. The best one will win $100 worth of About Comics publications, either your choice from a couple of bundles or 50 copies of the blank comic.
If you just want to buy one, you’ll need to get some buddies to go in with you. They’ll be in comic stores in February in a five-pack for $9.95. (That’s a lot for nothing! Heh heh, that’s a pun.)
I admit, I can’t think of a reason why I’d want one, but I’m not an artist, who may find them inspiring. Plus, I already know that my readers are more creative than I am. And please note, although About Comics is offering bribes to bloggers for posting about the contest, I’m not participating. (I already own most of the prizes anyway.) Instead, Nat Gertler, Mr. About Comics, has offered to send the bonus item to one of my commenters. So enter the contest, post your ideas here, and I’ll pick my favorite to receive a free About Comics book. I’m curious to see what people suggest for the book’s use.
