Whether you’re the only person not to have seen one of the biggest films of the year, or you just want to re-live the insanely idiosyncratic intergalactic adventure all over again, you may be interested to know I have one DVD copy of the Marvel blockbuster to give away this Christmas.

Giveaway: ‘Aama’ Graphic Novel

Calling all comic book fans!

The kind – and very cool – folk at SelfMadeHero have handed over a nifty prize in the shape of graphic novelist Frederik Peeters’ brand new book ‘The Invisible Thing’, the second instalment in his sci-fi-fantastic series ‘Aama’.

The planet-hopping space epic follows amnesiac hero Verloc Nim, his brother Conrad and robot ape sidekick (as ya do) Churchill as they journey into the unknown on a strange desert planet. Combining the philosophical fantasy of K. Dick and Kubrick, along with the impressive world-building of ‘Avatar’, Peeters’ series could very well be your next favourite science fiction fix. Already a winner of the ‘best series’ award at Angouleme festival in 2013, ‘Aama’ is a five-star “incredible saga” [Sci-Fi Now].

Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

No, it’s a super-frickin’ awesome Superman poster courtesy of the very talented Brian C. Roll (he of the genre art haven that is Odyssey Art).

Remember my post a couple of weeks back? Well, the superman behind art prints celebrating genre icons from Sherlock to Buffy, Marty McFly to Miss Piggy has been kind enough to donate a 24”x 36” Superman ‘Go Forward’ poster to one lucky winner who enters the latest Nice to Geek You giveaway.
