I've decided a competition is in order. Prize comes from my own coffers.

Winner will recieve:Winner will be chosen completely at random since you're all too lazy to actually submit an entry.

*Graphic Novel is in great condition. As new.

Update on the competition:

Winner will now be chosen completely at random since you're all too lazy to actually DO anything to attempt to win. (That said, Boldar has contributed reviews of each and every comic and thus is winner by default as things stand - though having reviewed the Wood Boy, I have to assume he already has a copy of the prize, and thus I might have to dig up something special for him instead.)

I'll notify the random winner of the graphic novel at the end of the month.

It is disappointing that no-one has entered, just to let you know why i haven't bothered, its not cause im lazy, ' i am lazy as hell, but thats not why.' I didn't enter cause i was worried that my review would be crap, that my knowledge of the books wasnt as good as yours, i didnt want to show myself up. But the rest of you should have entered.

Get writing.

I have opted out of the contest because I do indeed already own the prize.

So get going yu lazy bastages   Alrin said he will decide at the end of the month so maybe, just maybe if some effort is shown, the draw wont have to be random.

I've reopened the Reviews Thread in case more people had begun their reviews. As things currently stand, the winner will still be drawn at random. But if I recieve enough entries then perhaps I'll award it to the best entrant. Depends on the numbers really. (And if you've deleted any work you'd previously done I offer no apologies. A prize shouldn't be your sole motivation for reviewing anyway, ye bastards! )

So, do we need to actually do something, or just continue to breathe everyone else's perfectly good air?

HeeHeeHee yeah i deleted mine, but thats cool, now what other motivation's are you talking about? does reviewing pull chicks or something?  

I doubt i'll be able to redo my review in time, what with work, but good luck to the other entrants (if any) as i look forward to reading your reviews.

Alth,

Ok folks. So I used one of those online random number generators to choose our winner, and upon seeing the result almost decided to try again tongue.gif. But that would be wrong of me, so without further adieu, our winner...sPAM.
Well, I haven't been able to contact sPAM in the two weeks since the competition was drawn, and thus I'm redrawing. However, rather than randomly choosing a member I'm going to award the prize to the only member who actually submitted a review (as per the original conditions).

So, Formerly_Magnus is our winner.

Once again, apologies to any members who began a review only to scrap it after I changed the rules. But then, had you finished the reviews and posted them it may have been one of you recieving the prize.

Don't forget the new competition currently underway. Entry couldn't be easier. Well, go on!
