BBAW Giveaway - Graphic Novel Grab-Bag featuring WHAT IT IS by Lynda Barry

For my Book Blogger Appreciation Week giveaway, I'm featuring a hardcover copy of What It Is, by comics goddess Lynda Barry, as well as twelve samplers by publishers such as DC, Top Shelf, Dark Horse Comics, Red 5 Comics, Oni Press, Bongo Comics, Archie Comics and Marvel.

The centerpiece is the wonderful book by Lynda Barry, which is half memoir and half writing workshop. I loved this book.

If you have never read a graphic novel before, this is a fantastic opportunity to read a great book by a top artist and writer, and to get a grasp of what's going on in comics today with all the great samplers.

The rules for the giveaway are as follows:
  • Open to U.S. residents only.
  • To enter, leave a comment with your email address. If you do not leave an email address, your entry will not be counted.
  • I will use to select a winner on September 19 and notify the winner via email shortly thereafter. The winner has 48 hours to respond. If I don't hear back from you, I will choose a new winner.
  • Two extra entries if you're a follower.
  • Two more extra entries if you tweet or link to the giveaway and leave the link(s) in the comments.
