***CONTEST***Win The Creativity of Ditko!

As you may have heard--since I haven't shut up about it in recent weeks--the new book, THE CREATIVITY OF DITKO is dedicated to yours truly, which kind of makes me a little proprietary about it. Ditko is arguably THE greatest stylist among the classic comic book artists and Craig Yoe's latest volume highlights many of his lesser-known--but hardly lesser!--stories.

If you haven't already purchased your copy after the series of positive reviews it's received all around, here's your chance--thanks to the good folks at IDW-- to win one completely free! No purchase necessary!

Basically, it's an essay contest. In 50 words or less, complete the following: I like Steve Ditko's work because... 

This time next weekend, I'll randomly choose the winner from amongst all entries and they will be notified via email. The winning entry will be posted here at BOOKSTEVE'S LIBRARY. We also reserve the right to publish any and all other entries. In case of a tie, there is a bonus question: Define the following--"A"

While, as stated, there is absolutely no purchase necessary to enter, we ask that you take a look at our sale blog at All entrants who end up also ordering something over the next week will be automatically entered a second time. TWO chances to win! Everyone is eligible, even if you've won in our contests before. Deadline is midnight, Friday, October 5th. Send your essays to Good luck!


  1. Only 3 entries thus far. Your odds are good!

  2. "...I'll randomly choose the winner..." "...In case of a tie..."

    How can there be a tie if you randomly select a winner?

    And now that I have angered the to post my entry! :)
