Win the Full Sandman Omnibus

Win the Full Sandman Omnibus

By Tim Beedle Monday, October 21st, 2013

From start to finish, Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is a reading experience unlike any other. Of course, if you’ve never actually read the series from start to finish, you might want to consider picking up The Sandman Omnibus, a handsome new two-volume set that collects the original comic in its entirety. The first volume covers issues #1-37 and The Sandman Special #1, and it’s available now. The second arrives on November 6th and it contains the rest of the series, plus short stories from Vertigo Preview, Vertigo Jam and Vertigo: Winter’s Edge.

With their distinctive bindings, these two volumes are must-haves for passionate Sandman collectors who want to look the part, and we have two sets of both volumes to give away to fans… who are willing to prove they look the part.

What do we mean by that? Well, it’s impossible to think of Morpheus, the Lord of Dreams without thinking about his hair. Let’s face it, it’s one of the most distinctive manes in comics. So for a chance to win Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 of The Sandman Omnibus, we’re asking to see your best Sandman hair! If you can create Morpheus’s hair using your own head of hair, that’s great, if not, use a wig, mop, rug… Just be creative!

Here’s how to enter:

1) If you’re not already doing so, follow @Vertigo_Comics on Twitter.

2) Tweet a picture of you showing off your best Sandman hair between now and 5:00 p.m. PST on Wednesday, October 23. Be sure to use the hashtag #SandmanGiveaway in your tweet to have your entry counted.

After the deadline, we’ll pick our two favorite photos and winners will be direct messaged on Twitter for their contact info. So be sure to check your direct messages! We’ll post the winning photos here in the Vertigo blog next week.

Now go make this particular dream come true!
