FGNW Day 1: District X & Sandman

It's Day 1 of our Free Graphic Novel Week, celebrating one year of Yet Another Comics Blog.

The first graphic novel up for grabs is District X, vol. 1: Mr. M by David Hine, David Yardin, Lan Medina, Mike Perkins, Alejandro Sicat & Drew Hennessy. Marvel describes it thusly:
Welcome to Mutant Town, the dark corner of New York City where the long arm of the law has been severed clean. Here, the mutant population doesn't sport GQ style or champagne dreams. They eke out each day in squalid tenement rows and filthy streets where only one man and one law can be trusted: the X-Man Bishop.

Today's second choice is The Sandman: Brief Lives, book seven in Neil Gaiman's award-winning series, featuring art by Jill Thompson & Vince Locke with Dick Giordano. As a bonus, this volume has been autographed by Locke along with a small head sketch of Dream.
Delirium, youngest of the Endless, prevails upon her brother Dream to help her find their missing sibling. Their travels take them through the world of the waking until a final confrontation with the missing member of the Endless and the resolution of Dream's painful relationship with his son, Orpheum, change the Endless forever.

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.)
