Tomb Raider Book Bonanza

How would you like to win a copy of The Art of Tomb Raider, the massive new compendium of game artwork published by Dreams and Visions Press? I'll be giving away two copies at the end of May, along with six other book prizes throughout the month.

I'll be posting a different topic or question on this blog each week. Just share your opinion for a chance to win that week's prize. Please see the current week's blog post for the most recent topic. Winners will be selected at random, so creativity is encouraged but not required.

There are eight prizes in all. Two winners will be chosen each week from among the entries received that week. Two grand prize winners will be picked at the end of the month from among all the contest entries.

Official Tomb Raider FilesWeek One (May 1-7): Win a copy of The Official Tomb Raider Files. The topic: Tomb Raider Memories.

Lara's BookWeek Two (May 8-14): Win a copy of Lara's Book: Lara Croft and the Tomb Raider Phenomenon by Douglas Coupland. Just let us know who you'd like to see as a playable character in the next game. Post a comment here.

Week Three (May 15-21): Win a collection of Top Cow Tomb Raider graphic novels, specifically Tomb Raider Tankobon volumes 1 – 5 by participating in this week's discussion.

  1. Hello Stella.
    My name is Alison, it may seems funny, but I'm a man - I live in Brazil and here it's a male name. Anyway, I want to enter in this promotion, and I still a little lost about how to participate. What am I supposed to do?
    Thank you a lot.

  2. Hi, Alison. You can enter the contest in several different ways: If you want to post a comment about your favorite Tomb Raider memories below the blog post called "Tomb Raider Memories – Contest Week 1" that's good. Or you can just send me an email saying you want to be included. (There is an email link in the post above.) Or you can do any of those other things in the list above and you will be included.

    I don't require anything special. If I know you are interested, you will be included. Thanks and good luck! :)

  3. I've just got my Tomb Raider comics published on MyComicShop!
