BOOM! Studios Personalized Amory Wars Giveaway! [UPDATED]

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

We’ve been making really good friends with the crew at BOOM! Studios over the last couple of months, and I pretty much speak for everyone on the staff that we’re thankful for such an awesome company seeing promise in our site. To help give back to the website for all of the weeks of reviews and preview posts we’ve made, they’ve chipped in a prize for you all to try and win…and it’s a doozy!

You see, one major reason that I have such a raging hard-on for this comic company is that they were THE company to see merit in Claudio Sanchez’s epic science fiction space opera, The Amory Wars. For years, everyone at Evil Ink had been doing the entire series by their own lonesome selves until they finally achieved widespread recognition through the efforts of BOOM! Studios.

What does all of this have to do with the giveaway? Well, we received word just yesterday that BOOM! Studios is generously donating the Hardcover Edition of The Amory Wars: The Second Stage Turbine Blade that will be signed and personalized by none other than Claudio himself!

The book itself retails for $29.99 but the fact that the writing writer himself has signed and personalized it to you makes this pretty much priceless (at least in my opinion).

For those that didn’t know of this book’s existence but want to know all of the details, this book is the Ultimate Hardcover Edition of The Amory Wars: The Second Stage Turbine Blade which collects all 12 issues of the original comics and the Bag On Line Adventures. For a full review you can always check the one I put up a few months ago when this book debuted.

All you have to do to be entered into the contest is:

– Like WatchPlayRead on Facebook (1 entry)
– Follow WatchPlayRead on Twitter (1 entry)
– Retweeting this post (1 entry)
– Comment on this post here on WPR, on Facebook, or both that “ knows that obscurity has no hero” (1 entry for each)
– Join our FORUM and post one reply or start a new thread (1 entry)

If you do all of the items above, you’ll have a grand total of six (6) entries into this contest. The contest will be going from the moment this post goes up until 12:01 AM on the 6th of April 2011. After we tally all of the entries and make our random selection, we will make a new blog post announcing the winner and will contact them to claim their prize.

I wish you all the best of luck and would like to thank you for visiting WatchPlayRead! Also, don’t forget that the band behind the comic is currently on a Second Stage Turbine Blade tour so go see them after you read this book you can win, it will be amazing. We promise.

Many thanks to Chip @ BOOM! Studios for making this possible.


After about 300 entries into the contest, we plugged all of the names into a randomizer and have come out with a winner. A Mr. Jorge Kilgannon via Facebook (among other entry methods) is the winner of the contest!

We’d like to thank all of you who participated in the contest and for enjoying WatchPlayRead over the past few weeks of the contest. We are certain to have many many many more contests in the future, so stay on our radar so you don’t miss out!

Fans of Coheed & Cambria, you especially should keep an eye right here at WPR because we are going to have a chance to interview Claudio Sanchez at their Neverender SSTB concert when it rolls into SLC this May, and we’ll keep reviewing each issue of The Amory Wars as it is released.
