You may have noticed that we like giving away cool stuff here on and on the official DC Comics Twitter feed. Over the past few months, we’ve given you a chance to Win Wonder Woman, Buddy Up with Batman (for some cool Ecko Unlimited tees) and snag some free digital first comics. Well, starting today we’re kicking things into overdrive by launching a weekly series of Twitter giveaways!


Last month at Comic-Con, we had over a dozen of your favorite DC writers and artists autograph their SDCC signing cards. The cards are made from sturdy stock, legal-sized and all of them feature art from one of the creator’s projects. All of the cards are suitable for framing and guaranteed to gain you all sorts of comic book cred. And best of all, we intend to give each and every one of them away to fans who follow us on Twitter.


Up first, we have this ghostly 11" by 14" Phantom Stranger card signed by writer Dan DiDio. And he didn’t just sign it. He wrote a very special spoiler on the back concerning next month’s debut issue, PHANTOM STRANGER #0. We’re not going to say what it is. It’s just for the winner of this contest.


If you’d like to win this one-of-a-kind card and be in the know about Phantom Stranger before everyone else, you’re going to need to do a couple things.


1) If you're not already doing so, be sure to follow @DCComics on Twitter and Instagram.


2) Pick up some of your favorite new DC comics on Wednesday and take a photograph of you reading them. (If you can’t make it to a comic shop on Wednesday, a photo of you reading any DC comic will do.)


3) Share your picture with us via Instagram and tag @DCComics and #newDCday.

That’s all there is to it! At 5 pm PST on Monday, August 27, 2012, one winner will be chosen at random and direct messaged for his/her mailing address. The winner will be featured on Twitter. DC Comics will tweet the winner’s photo and a fan shout out on Tuesday, August 28, 2012.
