Are You Dapper?

I had hoped to do this giveaway prior to Christmas. I had hoped to include a fun little interview with the author- one of my oldest and closest friends, Jim McCann. But book tours and holidays have kept Jim a little busy and it just never quite came together.

So instead- and since I've already shared a lot on this blog about Jim- I'm just going to jump right into a giveaway!! If you do a Google Search for "Return of the Dapper Men," you can read a lot of rave reviews. Jim's graphic novel made it onto some really exciting lists of gift ideas, best ofs, and must watches. You can check out the fan page on Facebook and read oodles of links that tell you lots of awesome things about the graphic novel- raves about the story and the art. I'm not a reader of comics or graphic novels. I never got into that genre- I have no problem with it, just never grabbed my attention. I was concerned that my lack of experience with this art form would keep me from fully "getting" the book. But I got it and I enjoyed it and I want to share it with YOU! This is an autographed copy. It's been signed by Jim McCann and by artist Janet Lee.

 
Here are all the ways you can enter:

1. Leave a comment on this post andswering the question: Which would you be if the world was only children and robots? (good for 1 entry).

All entries must be in by Friday, January 14 at 8:oo PM EST. The winner will be selected and announced no later than Saturday, January 15, noon EST.

Good luck and please share this giveaway with any friends who are comic fans, Jim McCann fans, graphic novel fans, fairy tale fans, etc.

Not entering, just wanted to say we gave a copy to Tom for Christmas and he really enjoyed it :-) I had to get very fierce to stop him telling me the whole story because I want to read it myself!

Child or robot? Child, of course! I'm already tired of being the robot! And I know some children who I'll bet could take apart and rebuild a robot while running circles around it!

Leticia said...

I'm going with child, myself because I know 1st hand that robots don't stand a chance against some kids. ;)

Nancy said...

I am going with child as well.

And of course I am a follower of Eternal Lizdom!

Julie said...

Pretty sure I am a follower...at least I check it all the time.

C. Beth said...

Wow, that book looks cool just from the cover! I want it!

I'd be a child. Totally.

I'm a follower.

Andrew said...

Definitely would go with being a robot. Longer lifespan after all!

Matt Duarte said...

Definitely a robot. I think the analytical mind would be aplus.

Hi, saw your contest on Jim McCann's Twitter and thought I'd enter. In answer to your question, I'd be a kid, no question. I loved being one the last time and would love to have just as much fun again. I'm afraid of death and dying, but being a child again? Worth it, I think.

Also, I have a blog and I did post an entry for your contest there. Check it out at:

I would rather be a child then a robot. As a kid I wouldn't be as cynical as I am now, I would be mostly wide eyed and innocent, my imagination would be free to run wild, and life would just be a lot better ideally.
Plus I could just totally control the robot. Thus a world where I was always a child and had a robot would be awesome.
