November 11, 2012
I am a bit obsessed by year-end book and music lists, and throughout the year keep personal listings of my favorite novels, short story collections, nonfiction books, graphic novels, songs, and albums.
Chris Ware's comics collection Building Stories is at the top of my 2012 graphic novels list, and just might be my favorite book of the year.
To enter this week's contest, leave a comment with the name of your favorite cartoon or comics character to win this book and a Threadless gift certificate. Mine is Ware's Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
Chris Ware's comics collection, Building Stories
A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like Storytellers, The Best Channels Since 1465, Fahrenheit 451, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, and music-related t-shirts like Death Note, Funkalicious, Music Snob, or anything else that catches your fancy.
If you have already have the book or it doesn't interest you, I am happy to substitute a second $100 Threadless gift certificate for the book.
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (November 16th)
