FGNW Day 4: Ultimate Elektra & A Very Sammy Day

It's Day 4 of our Free Graphic Novel Week (the half-way point!), celebrating one year of Yet Another Comics Blog!

The first selection of the day is Ultimate Elektra: Devil's Due by Mike Carey & Salvador Larroca. Marvel descibes it:
Matt Murdock - desperate to see Elektra Natchios again - makes an attempt to contact this mysterious young woman, putting himself squarely in the crosshairs of the biggest crime boss in New York City: Ultimate Kingpin!

Wilson Fisk enters the life of Elektra as well, along with a mystery killer who's right on target. Can the young warrior face this deadly assassin alone? Matt doesn't think so.

The second selection for today is A Very Sammy Day by Azad:
The origin of the world's unluckiest cat burglar! Samuel Little has been sleeping with one eye open with good reason: He's a snitch, and everyone knows it. After ratting out his old crew to the cops, he's finding it difficult to adjust to normal life in his old neighborhood. But a cranky landlord, pesky fumigators, and an overly friendly stray cat aren't all he has to worry about. Associates of his former crew are dead-set on making this not just the worst day of Sammy's life, but the last.

To enter for a chance to win one of these graphic novels, simply do the following:

Send me an email with your name, your postal address, which graphic novel you want, and a sentence or two telling me why you want it. Please put 'FGNW' and the title of the graphic novel you want in the subject of your email.

You can enter once per day (but only once)--that means that you have to choose which of the two graphic novels you want. Also, you can only win once, so if you are picked you can't enter any more. But you can keep entering each day until you win. (You must be 18 or older and live in the United States.)

Entries must be received by 11:59 pm EDT, and the winners will be announced tomorrow morning. Then I'll announce the next two graphic novels, and this will continue all week.

(Full details, including the fine print, are available here.)
