I recently reviewed the incredible graphic novel biography, The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story, written by Vivek J. Tiwary and illustrated by Andrew C. Robinson and Kyle Baker. (It was just nominated for two Eisner awards!)
Last week I announced that Wink (a paper book review website that my wife Carla Sinclair edits) was holding a giveaway of the rare signed, numbered, slipcased "Limited Edition" of The Fifth Beatle, which is limited to 1500 copies, signed by all three creators and comes with an exclusive tip-in page of art. Entrants to the giveaway were asked to write their own text for the word balloons in the panel above. (Clockwise L-R John Lennon, George Harrison, Brian Epstein, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney. NOTE: John has 2 balloons.)
The entries were judged by Vivek J. Tiwary himself, and he selected a winner for the limited edition and a runner-up for a regular edition.
A: okay guys, the show was amazing but I really need a shower. NOW.
B: so put your holy light on the world mighty John and show us the way home!
C: "And God made two great lights, the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night"
D: guys this is actually a van, not a church.
E: so...let there be light!
F: Finally. Thank God.
Runner Up: audiochunk
A: One sweet dream
B: Pick up the bags and get in the limousine
C: Soon we'll be away from here
D: Step on the gas and wipe that tear away
E: One sweet dream came true today
F: Yes it did...
Congratulations, Frunker and audiochunk!
