One of the best things about being a music and literature blogger is that I never run out of music to listen to or books to read. One day last week a box arrived from one of my favorite comics publishers, Top Shelf Comix, filled with their latest books. Usually when I finish reading a book I give it to a friend I think will appreciate it. Since the internet brings us all closer (and I consider every reader a friend), I'd like to offer these 14 graphic novels to one of the readers of Largehearted Boy. As an added incentive, this giveaway will entice me to finish the books this week.
These graphic novels run the gamut from comics for adults to kids, and everything in between.
Three of the books are by James Kochalka, Superf*ckers, Johnny Boo and the Mean Little Boy, and Dragon Puncher. Dragon Puncher, in particular, is truly a comic for all ages, starring a heroic cat in armor and his sidekick, Spoony-e.
To enter the contest, leave a comment in this post with your favorite book or series that is appropriate (and fun) for everyone from toddlers to adults.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
