This week I'm giving away a copy of the 2008 sampler from Top Shelf Comics, publishers of Johnny Boo, Korgi, the Owly series and many other fine comics and graphic novels for children and adults.

What's great about a sampler is that you get a few pages of lots of different comics- different styles, artists and subject matter- and you can use it like a catalog at your local library or bookstore. I use mine that way all the time, and it's how I find some of the titles I feature on Graphic Novel Mondays.

They give these away for free at comic book stores routinely but most of the stores I've visited lately are out of this sampler so it may not be easy to find it now. Which is not to say it's not current- the 2008 sampler showcases a full range of what's new and great from Top Shelf this year.

So leave a comment with your email address if you're interested in winning the 2008 Sampler; I'll do a drawing on Monday, September 1st and announce the winner the next day. Extra entries for mentioning the contest on your blog and another entry for mentioning Graphic Novel Monday on your blog as well. Good luck!
