My First Give Away!!


So I have a wonderful Ya/adult graphic novel titled Blood Song a silent ballad.  by Eric Drooker from dark horse books.  It is a novel of pictures; no words.  This makes it interesting because the story is left to the imagineation.  I've (read?) looked at a couple of books like this and enjoyed interpreting visual symbolism.  Blood Song is the story of a young girls tragic journey to escape the violent death of her family, yet still maitain her innocent perspective.  The graphics are stark with blunt lines and cool shades.  As an artist, I love finding art that creates such an epic story.  Sooooooo.  If you are interested in receiving a brand new copy of Blood Song here is your challange.  Become a follower on The Epitome,  Send me a comment about your favorite graphic novels before Nov. 30th.  You'll get the book by Christmas!!!

Hi Halli, You made me interested in this book. I like graphic novels and everything you can't put easily in a certain category like Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. My favorite graphic novels are still Maus I and Persephone. But it might change... Thank you for your book tip. And... if I'm not lucky enough to get it for Christmas, I might as well go to the store and check out its pictures. As you know I love artwork!

I would say Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi is my all-time favorite GN. I like non-fiction/auto-biographical GN authors like Joe Sacco, Craig Thompson, Jeffrey Brown, Marjane Satrapi, etc.
but I would say Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi is my all-time favorite GN.
Did you know that Audrey Niffenegger (author of Time Traveler's Wife) has a GN out now called the Night Bookmobile? It's a bit depressing but still good.

Hi! I met you over at Colene Murphy's blog. You're awesome for being her 100th follower. She's so happy. :0)

Sounds like a fun contest. Uh, I'm not sure what kinda graphic novel I'd like.

Would a gift card be acceptable if I should win? *cringe*

hey elizabeth, thanks for joining! I already have Blood Song ready to mail out to my lucky winner so if it happens to be you and you happen to not like it then just pass it on. A gift card is a good idea, maybe I'll do that next time.
