OYL Day 1 Giveaway - Manhunter Vol 1: Street Justice TPB

This is it - the first One Year Later Giveaway Contest and it's one of my favourite books, Manhunter, from DC Comics. You will remember I ran a review of the first two trades back in April and have had nothing but good things to say about the book since it returned from hiatus a couple of months back.

Well, if all the praise I've heaped upon this book hasn't been enough to get you to cave and buy the trades, this contest is your chance to win your very own copy of Manhunter Vol. 1: Street Justice and find out what all the fuss is about with this title. Read on to find out how to win.

How To Win

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below with your:
  • name
  • email address (use username AT email DOT com if you are afraid of spammers getting your email address. ex: kirbymorph AT gmail DOT com =
  • one or two sentences on why you should you win
That's it! Simple enough, right? Be sure to check out the contest rules & regulations for information on things such as which countries are eligable, if shipping costs apply to you, etc.

Good luck to all who enter and stay tuned for more contests over the next five days!

Contest has ended! Thanks to all who entered and the winner will be announced shortly.

Long time reader, but was too afraid to drop the money on Manhunter. I should win since I dont own a copy of Manhunter yet.

Hint- Maybe get Amazon Prime for this month- its free for a month, and you get free two-day shipping. Just make sure you go to preferences and make sure it doesnt automatically charge you for the whole year.

A little skeptical about splurging on Manhunter even though you have given glowing reviews. I thought I might give a shot if I won here. :)

Help out a poor college student whose comics budget must constantly fight supervillains like rent and money for food. Winning this would be my Batman preptime so I can compete with these super-powered enemies.

I've always wanted to get into Manhunter and see what's the whole ruckus about; this would be the perfect way to go about it.

I don't own any of the old issues of Manhunter. This series along with Beetle has kept me with DC and opened my mind for any comic book besides the big three. They handle the character very well as an individual and a legacy. The writing is sharp and unpredictable. Manhunter herself has really evolved from what I've been reading

I should win because I have exceptional personal hygiene and I rescued a box full of kittens once.

one or two sentences on why you should you win //
I'd love to win because it's really hard to get this kind of quality work where i live and i would appreciate this like a real treasure. Also, I'm a huge fan of Marc Andreyko since i read "The Lost".

I should win because I have never won anything like this before. Also, because I'm doing my thesis on solar death ray design, i doubt i will ever earn any money to buy said trade. It may sound twisted to you, but it does have some non lethal applications. In theory.

Mayhap others are as worthy as I am to win this prize, and I would think that our entreaties of worthiness would be for naught. However that said, 'I am a mother of two little girls 4,6 and a full time college student. Comics provide my escape and a small break in an otherwise hectic day. Please, consider blessing me with teh awesome TPB you possess.' ;)

Reason: I'm a huge Green Lantern fan. I'd like to learn a bit more about this character and the possible link between her and the Manhunters. I know i could be way off, but it sounds interesting to me.

A fan of the pulpy street level characters, I hadn't yet given Manhunter the time of day. She's always been quite an interesting and original looking hero, so I wouldn't mind the kick start in the least.

My Batman trades are lonely on my bookshelf, surrounded by Marvel and Image and Vertigo, wondering where some heroes from the DC universe are.

I should win because although I've gotten my girlfriend to read artsier real life oriented comics, she has yet to get into superheros. A cool, smart female superhero like Manhunter might be the one to reel her in, and then maybe she'd be willing to go halfsies on the weekly pull list...

I should win because if I don't then the forces of evil and darkness will have triumphed and the subjugation of our world will march towards our inevitable annihilation. You have the power to save the universe-don't let us down!

Seriously though, I've been reading manhunter since it started up and would love to read through the trades-this would give me an excuse to get the rest :)

I've been wanting to get into more DC comics. While I picked up one random back issue of Manhunter and didn't much care for it, that was a random issue. If I could read it from the beginning, that would help me get more into it.

Invincible, Blue Beetle, Catwoman and Manhunter, all wonderful comics that I haven't bought from my comic shop. I should win so I have a constant, physical reminder for why I can't have nice things.

I should win because I'm a massive fan of Blue Beetle and would love to read another DC legacy book. Plus I love collecting series, so if you give me the first one, I'm probably going to buy all the other trades.

I've always heard that Manhunter is excellent, but I'm too OCD to just start picking it up with random issues, and I'm WAY behind on trades I'd like to have. Also, I've been reading your site for most of the past year, and I love it.

I should win because I'm a poor kid from the Philippines who can't afford to buy comics every week. And I've been hearing good things about Manhunter and I want to check it out. I also go to this site every day.

I should win this book because if I don't, I'll subject myself to watching the Fantastic Four, Daredevil, and Catwoman movies nonstop for 72 hours. Don't put that kind of torture on your conscience.

I should win because I just started reading comics recently and am still picking books that I'll read every month. Getting the first trade of Manhunter could cement its place on my list if everything I have heard about it is true.

My wife just had another baby, to go along with our first daughter, who just hit the terrible twos. I have no seen a bed in serval weeks and am desperate to read something that does not involve busy insects. Also, I will read it to my daughters in the hopes that they too will gorw up to be dark avengers of justice.

I'm a student at an Ivy League school with a fantastic comic collection in its library--not big enough though, as I've pretty much gone through the whole thing. Naturally I deserve to win this comic giveaway because, well, I'm a fine entitled young man.

I should win because I don't own this particular trade, and I would like to, seeing as I have been enjoying Manhunter since the new issues started coming out.

Wicked Juan said...

Rather than sign up, I'll just say Manhunter is awesome. It's easily one of the best books DC publishes.

The giveaways are fantastic, Kirk. Great selections thus far!

I should win because I have never read a Manhunter comic. I have heard how good this run was and would like to have a chance to read it.

Steve said...

Well...I've heard the hype from many a source and would like to check out the series but some days you just gotta make choices. Feed the baby, read a trade. If not, I guess I can read it in 18 years. :)

Manhunter is a great series and I've been tempted a few times to pick up all the trades for my collection, but apparently I need a bit of a push in the right direction. Winning this contest would mean I'd end up buying the rest of the trades myself, and that's good for everybody.

I would like to try Manhunter,perhaps it is a trade I could share with my mife and girl's.
