STAR WARS Graphic Novel Giveaway

Thanks to a donation from a generous Space: 1970 reader, I have extra copies of three Dark Horse Star Wars graphic novels/collections that I'm going to give away to some lucky Star Kid this holiday season. If it all goes smoothly, I may do more of these giveaways in the future.

For this first Space: 1970 Giveaway, I have the 1997 graphic novel adaptation of the first Star Wars movie by writer Bruce Jones and artists Eduardo Barreto and Al Williamson, the 1997 trade paperback of the original Marvel Comics adaptation of The Empire Strikes Back by Archie Goodwin & Al Williamson, and the Star Wars Omnibus Volume Two, which collects issues #28 through #49 of the original Marvel Comics Star Wars comic book series from the 70s-80s. These are not mint condition collectibles, but very good reading copies.

To simplify things, I'll be picking only one winner for all three books.

All you have to do to qualify for the random drawing is a.) be a U.S. resident (sorry!) and b.) send an e-mail containing your name and mailing address to with the words "SPACE:1970 GIVEAWAY" in the subject line. One entry will be chosen at random, and I'll mail the graphic novels to the lucky winner. Entries must be received before midnight, Friday, December 14, 2012. The winner will be announced here on Monday the 17th. Good luck!

One entry per person, please. Double entries will be disqualified. Entries that do not follow the above instructions precisely will be disqualified and discarded. A winner will be drawn at random and announced on December 17, 2012. The winner's name will be posted here at and they will be notified via email. All entries will be deleted immediately after the contest’s close, and no personal information will be retained or transmitted to any third parties. The contest is open to U.S. residents only. Prizes will be shipped via media mail. Unfortunately, Space: 1970 cannot assume responsibility for items lost or damaged in transit.

ADDENDUM: I'm having to discard almost half the entries because people aren't reading the directions closely. You must include your full name and mailing address in your e-mail, or I chuck it. Period. 

ADDENDUM II: Sorry for sounding so grumpy above; I was frustrated.


  1. This is very cool of you. Thanks for offering this chance to your readers.

  2. Yes, thank you for the offer. I always enjoy my visit here and this is a nice gesture to reward one lucky fan.
