We had a couple of big plans there at one point, but now we just want to give them to someone who will enjoy them!

Comment on this post to win one of two copies of BAC 2010 signed by about 25 cartoonists from both the selections and the Notables list, and including guest editor Neil Gaiman. Comment on THIS OTHER post to enter to win one of three BAC 2011 signed by about 20 cartoonists from both the selections and the Notables list, and including guest editor Alison Bechdel.

Deadline: 12 pm Tuesday August 7, 2012

    I love these annuals and often check it out at the bookstore, but have a limited budget. Gaiman as editor was a great choice for this edition, what great company on this one! Thanks for doing these, guys (contest and for series editors)!

    The HSU Library History of Comics Special Collections needs this. Although, would I donate my copy to the library and keep the signed copy for myself? Hmmm.
