Post BEA Giveaway (Graphic Novel Edition)

Initially I was set on coming up with the most random pile of books imaginable, Remembrance of Things Past, A collection of surrealist plays, a Spanish/English Dictionary...

Then I realized that a) no one wants that stuff and B) what I really needed to get rid of was graphic novels. I don't know what it is, the darn things seem to breed on our shelves, but now it's time for some to go!

So comment on this post for a chance to win:




V for Vendetta: Alan Moore's tale of a dystopian Britain and V, the freedom fighter/lunatic bent on overthrowing the government.
Batman: The Long Halloween: This story jumps back to early in Batman's career as he faces off against his greatest enemies and a new enigmatic killer.
The Walking Dead Volume 1: The kick off to an epic story set post zombie apocalypse. The source material for the new hit show on AMC.


DMZ Volume 1: Follows Matty Roth, an intern turned photo journalist as he navigates the ruins of New York City and the complexities of the second American Civil War.
Wolverine: Old Man Logan: A Wolverine story set far in the future after the super villains have finally conquered the world, all the other super heroes are dead and Wolverine has gone pacifist, well, for awhile at least. Bloody good fun.
We3: A simple story about a rabbit, a cat and a dog's struggle for freedom after being made into nearly unstoppable killing machines by the government. Now, my guess is that sentence was just as ridiculous to read as it was to write, but trust me, this is a great story and one that is absolutely guaranteed to make you cry.

And, what the hell,  just to sweeten the deal a bit I'm throwing in two awesome and hilarious novels:

M.T. Anderson's Whales on Stilts  and Christopher Moore's Bloodsucking Fiends.






Enjoy!

I'm not really a big fan of graphic novels (I prefer Proust and surrealist plays, though I already have a Spanish-English dictionary), but I'd love a copy of V for Vendetta at least. And those last two look hilarious.

We are becoming a graphic novel addict family lately. My 13yr old has been asking for 'The Walking Dead' - but we are also international (Australia) so completely understandable if that's a bit too much of a hike for them to travel. Had to comment anyway to say awesome collection and you've sold me on We3 - I'm going to look that up now!
