"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Hey folks, I was going to post the entries to the Random Thoughts contest but then I thought, “But Brian, you should really give them another chance to enter in case they missed your first post on the subject.”
So here you go!
As you may or may not know (and you really should know), our own Chad Nevett recently edited a fine collection of essays about Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson’s Transmetropolitan called Shot in the Face:
A Savage Journey to the Heart of Transmetropolitan. You can read more about it here. Our own Greg Burgas also has an essay in the book (as does Chad, on top of editing the whole thing).
Chad has a free copy to give away and we figured we’d do it as a contest. Simply mail me (at firstname.lastname@example.org) a thought you had about Transmetropolitan. Imagine that there was a post up about the series and you could say anything you wanted to about it, what would you say? It can be just a sentence, it can be a paragraph, whatever you feel like writing. Next Tuesday, I will collect all the submissions and we’ll post them together as a special edition of Random Thoughts next Wednesday. Chad, though, will also read all of the submissions and pick whichever one he finds the most insightful and that person will win a free copy of the book. Not JUST a free copy of the book, though (and here’s something I didn’t mention the first time around, which is also why I figured I should write about this again), but Chad will actually write a one-of-a-kind edition of Random Thoughts on the inside cover of the book, just for you!
Sounds good, right? So just e-mail me your Transmetropolitan thoughts to email@example.com now! If you’ve already done so, don’t worry about it. I’ve already received plenty of entries. This is just for the people who missed this announcement the first time around.
Comics Should Be Good accepts review copies. Anything sent to us will (for better or for worse) end up reviewed on the blog. See where to send the review copies.
