Contest - Win a signed copy of Failsafe

My good friend Ian of Black Label Comics is using Kickstarter to release his latest project, and to help promote his efforts, we here at The Weekly Crisis have decided to give away a copy of this upcoming book. Failsafe is a one-shot that teams up Ian with artist Ryan Cody (of Jesus Christ: In The Name of the Gun and Icarus), so hit the jump to learn more about it and how you can win a copy of it yourself. 

The Comic

First of all, what is Failsafe about? I'll let writer Ian Struckhoff explain...

Captain Penny Laertes's latest freight run has taken her past a nebula that's reputed to be home to Nebula Sirens. Over the ages, various space-faring cultures have encountered the mysterious, beautiful, and strange black-bodied beings that live unprotected in space. Early explorers are said to have believed the creatures to be predators of a sort, tempting men to space-walk into the nebular clouds. Penny is about to find out whether they are as dangerous as all the rumors say. (This story combines elements of space-going adventure, a theme from the Odyssey, and a darker survival story.)

Sounds like your cup of tea? Good, then here's how you can win a signed copy of it. All you have to do is post in the comments section below with your favorite fictional space race, name, and e-mail address.
That will grant you one entry into the contest, however, if you want to double your opportunities, you can also post a link to this contest on your blog, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook or Google Plus account. This will get you two entries into the contest, so something as simple as sharing it on Twitter like the next example can double your opportunities.
