TYL Giveaway Day 2 - Scalped Vol 1: Indian Country

The first contest for our Two Years Later anniversary sees us giving away a copy of the first volume of Jason Aaron's & R.M. Guéra's critically acclaimed creator owned comic, Scalped, from DC's Vertigo imprint. The reason I chose this title is that I'm a huge fan of Jason Aaron's writing and wanted to introduce people to his creator owned work outside of Marvel and figured this would be the perfect introduction to the crime/noir/western Scapled series.

With that said, hit the jump to find out how you can win your own copy of Scalped Vol 1: Indian Country!

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: weeklycrisis AT gmail DOT com =
  • one or two sentences on why you should you win
That's it! Simple enough, right? Winners will be chosen randomly, so 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.

Contest has ended. Good luck to all who entered and stay tuned for more contests in the future!

I believe I should win because Scalped would be my first full on venture to "indy" comics. This will most likely spike my interest in them, and expand my comic library.

After Immortal Weapons #1, I kinda want to read everything Aaron's ever done (though I suspect fewer squads of Nazi ninjas in this one).

I should win because, even though I've never read Scalped, thanks to Jason Aaron, I bought, read and enjoyed runs of Black Panther, Ghost Rider, and Wolverine, all of which I previously thought were pretty much unreadable titles. If he can breathe life into a Secret Invasion tie-in, I'd love to see what he can do with his own material! Jason Aaron rules!!

I shouldn't win because I haven't written my name and I m just spamming. Also you can give it as a no prize to be and thus get to keep it yourself [:p]

I believe I should win because a) I'm Canadian (and who doesn't like a Canadian) b) my wife has used logic to get me to stop buying singles because storing them becomes a problem in our house c) my nine month old daughter needs to be exposed to the great hobby that is comics and this would be a great addition to a small but expanding library of graphic novels.

I should win because I've helped increase traffic by 6 people single handedly and I've always wanted to read Scalped, especially after Get Mystique, the best Wolverine story arc in over ten years.

I've heard good things about Scaled from big time reviewers and friends. I have always been tempted to check it out but this seems like the perfect chance.

Matt Ampersand said...

We should give it to the guy that wants to expose his nine month old to Scalped. Now THAT'S dedication to a medium.

Ryan Schrodt said...

Matt - As soon as my wife gets pregnant (which hopefully won't be a while), I plan on reading comics aloud directly to her stomach, including describing the pictures. I want that baby coming out with a natural appreciation for Alan Moore and Jack Kirby.

Reason: The number of titles I'm regularly reading continues to decline, and by all accounts Jason Aaron could reverse that trend. Help get me hooked.

I should win because I'm a huge fan of Jason's work at Marvel but purposely avoided him at a con because I hadn't read SCALPED and didn't want to look like a fool. With this volume, I'll never have to make that same mistake again.

Over a year ago, My LCBS closed down. A couple of months later, I was fired from my job. Since then, I have not been able to buy comics or take a trip to the closest shop, save for Free Comic Book Day. It'd be a really great treat to recieve a trade from the place where I'm able to keep track of where the comic book worlds are going.

I should win because if I get the first taste for free, I'll likely buy the rest of the series so you'll effectively be putting food on Jason Aaron's table.

I work with Indigenous peoples everyday and have never seen a work of fiction get the surprising nod of approval from them like this series does. Many of the people I work with say they know of reservations just like what is shown in Scalped. A testament to the research done by Jason Aaron!

Like others, I appreciate the book because it is a dark reflection of what life is like on the rez. It is the only book that I both love and hate to read, because it is such a quality book that also manages to distress me to the realities of the life it tells through fiction, and because of that I have been motivated to work with people to change that.

I think I should win because I havn't got the chance yet to read the book! I have heard great things about it and really want to check it out. Unfortunatly I am a poor grad student and lack the funds. I am studying American History and Native Americans especially so I have a particular interest in the subject matter. I might even be able to incorporate the material into some research ideas I am playing around with concerning popular media portrayals with historic connotations.

I'm a mainstream comic fan of the "regular" universe, mostly DC, and very rarely venture into Vertigo, so this would be a good way to try a title I wouldn't normally buy.
