WIN Cool Comix, Including Signed Seeds

Acclaimed graphic novel is ripe for the picking.

We just have to say it: cancer sucks. Comics, on the other hand, rule. And funny-book connoisseurs know that the best comics can help anyone (not just fanboys and girls) deal with some of life's toughest times. Enter Ross Mackintosh. His acclaimed Com.x graphic novel Seeds documents his dad's death from cancer in simple, heartfelt fashion. Enter to win a signed copy, along with other Com.x books today. Grow bonus entries on our ever-fertile Facebook and Twitter pages. We'll harvest 'em all up and pick a winner Sept. 20th, 2011.

For many of us, comics started as a sort of comfort food for the mind. Those dashing dudes and hard-body heroines blasting holes in skyscrapers offered a shelter for the imagination, an escape from reality. So when a book comes along that can offer actual comfort through shared, real-life experience, we think it bears a mention. Like Blankets before it, Seeds enters fairly complex emotional territory with grace. But contrary to what you might think, the narrative here is no major bummer. Named for the way both humans and cancer cells reproduce, it's a funny, touching, philosophical tale. If you prefer more conventional heroics, guns, and alternate dimensions, our prize package also includes Com.x's Cla$$war, Razorjack and Forty-Five.

Two runners-up can similarly score a signed Seeds, solo, but hurry. For everything there is a season and this one ends Sept. 20th. Live it up with bonus entries at our Facebook and Twitter. A story about death can remind us all to live life to the fullest...and free stuff totally helps with that.
