We've been up and running for about six weeks now, so Mandroid decided it was about time to participate in our first giveaway hop. Considering the amount of stuff we lugged home from San Diego Comic Con, I think it's only fair if we give some of it away.
For our first giveaway, we have four prize options ranging from an advance readers copy of some interesting upcoming releases to a slew of comics from DC. But don't worry if you don't win; whichever prizes aren't picked this time around will be up for grabs later on. This contest runs through Sunday, August 7. The winner will have 48 hours to respond or another winner will be chosen. Now on to the instructions!
To be entered into the contest, you must be a follower through Google Friend Connect. It's that shiny little widget at the bottom of the lefthand side bar that's labelled Mandroid's Friends. Don't you want to be one of Mandroid's friends? I promise he doesn't bite (very often).
There are three ways to get a bonus entries:
- Follow Mandroid and co. on Twitter at @workformandroid
- Tweet a link to the contest
- Answer the multiple choice question in the form below
And now on to the prize choices!
