Win a Batgirl comic!

So, there's a blog called Girls Read Comics and they are currently hosting a contest to win the Batgirl Rising trade.  I can highly recommend this book, it is on the list for review on this site and it's a great fun read. If you like the style and delivery of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show you would probably like this.  Oh, and it's written by Bryan Q Miller who writes for Smallville.  That may or may not encourage you.  I can tell you that people who hate Smallville do like the Batgirl book.  You can read more about the book on Amazon here.

If you want to enter you just need to leave a comment on their post, with the words 'New reader', however I would encourage you to go to the post and read the full rules!

Winners will be chosen this Friday at 7pm EST.

So, if you are interested in getting a free comic, head on over to the Girls Read Comics post and leave them a comment!

NOTE: The competition is not on this site, leaving a comment here won't win you anything (except my appreciation)
