Win a Fables Card Signed by Bill Willingham!

Win a Fables Card Signed by Bill Willingham!

By Tim Beedle Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

If we’ve learned anything from Fables, it’s that not every tale has a happy ending. But fortunately, yours can. Especially if you’re a Bill Willingham or Fables fan.

 

Today marks the release of FABLES #122, which tells the story of “The Destiny Game,” an action-packed, surprising tale written by Bill Willingham and drawn by guest artist Gene Ha. It looks into the matter of fate and how it plays out in the Fables universe, which is an interesting subject considering that one lucky Fables fan out there is about change theirs.

 

At San Diego Comic-Con last summer, we had Bill Willingham sign the below card. And as a little tribute to this new issue and the 121 that preceded it, we’re giving it away.

 

 

Since it’s hard to get a sense of scale from that photo, you should know that this no pocket card. It’s 11” by 14” and is made of heavy, thick card stock. It’s a great piece for framing and you’re sure to enjoy telling the story about how you won it to your friends. But until you’ve actually claimed the prize, the tale is incomplete. Here’s how to ensure that you get your happy ending:

 

1) If you're not already doing so, be sure to follow @Vertigo_Comics on Twitter and DC Comics on Instagram.

 

2) Pick up some of your favorite new DC or Vertigo 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 Vertigo or DC comic will do.)

 

3) Share your picture with us via Instagram and tag @Vertigo_Comics and #DCComicscontest.


That’s all there is to it! At 5 pm PST on Monday, October 29, 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, on DCComics.com. DC Comics will tweet the winner’s photo and a fan shout out on or around Tuesday, October 30, 2012.
