CONTEST: Win Left On Mission!

Left On Mission, the excellent spy comic book series by Chip Mosher and Francesco Francavilla that made my Top Seven of '07 list, hits bookstores today as a handsome trade paperback collection. Mosher's story, which combines a Le Carré-ish meditation on the human toll of espionage with the action of Ludlum and the thrilling locations of Fleming, and Francavilla's truly beautiful artwork (which brings those locations to life, thanks also to the extraordinary work of colorist Martin Thomas) add up to the best espionage comic since Greg Rucka's Queen & Country. Issue #1 took me by surprise, and kept me eagerly coming back for more. Subsequent issues didn't let me down, building to a stunning finale. Fans of the authors I just mentioned should definitely pick up this collection--or win a signed copy of it here on the Double O Section!

I have two signed copies to give away. Simply send an email with the subject heading "LEFT ON MISSION CONTEST" including your name, mailing address and favorite spy author to the Double O Section by midnight, Pacific Time on Sunday, March 30, 2008. (The favorite writer has no bearing on results; I’m just curious!) Winners will be announced next Monday. Good luck!

One entry per person, please. Double entries will be disqualified. One winner will be drawn at random and announced in on Monday, March 31, 2008. Winners’ names will be posted here 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 anyone, in any country. Unfortunately, the Double O Section cannot assume responsibility for items lost or damaged in transit.
