My Thanks to Dan Lennard, People Magazine's Feature Editor, for saying a few nice words about Comicoz' Ned Kelly book, and for running a competition to award some lucky three readers a free copy!
Readers have to write "(in ONE SENTENCE) the last time you wish you'd been wearing armour" and send the entry to: Win Stuff, Care of People, GPO Box 2860, Sydney, NSW, 2001 with entries closing at 5pm on July 25th.
Dan need not think that everyone who read this Blog will now enter his competition: it just isn't so. Everyone who reads this Blog has a copy! Right? Of course!
It's a tough job, I know, but SOMEONE had to do it! And why not me? I have battled through the bosoms to search for the Ned Kelly review in the new issue of People Magazine (out today and on sale for the next fortnight).
