Last Wednesday, we offered Fables fans the chance to win a “Cubs in Toyland” card signed by current artists Mark Buckingham and Steve Leialoha. We got plenty of responses, and even if none of them came from Fabletown, the last thing we’d call our winning photo is mundane:
Queen of my own Toyland!
The photo and caption were submitted by @terracanta on Twitter, who now has a great piece of signed Fables art to compliment that crown. But even if you didn’t win, this tale still has a happy ending. Especially if you’re an All-Star Western fan!
This week marks the release of ALL-STAR WESTERN #0, which reveals how Jonah Hex received his trademark scar. So to celebrate this important chapter in the life of our favorite gunslinger, we’re giving away an All-Star Western card signed by series artist Moritat.
As usual, the card is 11” by 14” and is made of heavy card stock. It features Nighthawk and Cinnamon, leaping to action in a pose that will have you seeing some very sharp stars. If you’d like to get your hands on this ready-for-framing collector’s item, you’re going to need to do a couple things (and they’re slightly different than with previous giveaway, so pay close attention).
2) Pick up some of your favorite new DC comics on Wednesday and take a photograph of you reading them. (If you can’t make it to a comic shop on Wednesday, a photo of you reading any DC comic will do.)
3) Share your picture with us via Instagram and tag @DCComics and #DCComicscontest.
That’s all there is to it! At 5 pm PST on Monday, October 1, 2012, one winner will be chosen at random and direct messaged for his/her mailing address. The winner will be featured on Twitter and if possible, here on DCComics.com. DC Comics will tweet the winner’s photo and a fan shout out on or around Tuesday, October 2, 2012.
