Giveaway: Win A Copy of Brian Ewing’s New Book, “Don’t Hold Your Breath: The Art of Brian Ewing”

I’ve just been lucky enough to browse through a copy of Brian Ewing’s new book, a hardcover filled with 112 poster-packed pages, and it’s really great. You get to see early sketches of many of the posters, plus stories about their creation, and he also enlisted a ton of credible folks from around the community to comment on his work.  Brian was nice enough to offer a free copy of the book (complete with a signed and doodled page) to TWO lucky OMG readers.  To enter, just leave something in the comments here.  If your comment doesn’t show up right away, be patient, it is likely awaiting moderation.  The winners will be announced sometime tomorrow morning (Saturday, November 6th).  Please only enter once, I will be checking for duplicate entries, plus it’s just the honest thing to do. If you don’t win, you can buy the book for around $17 at Good luck!

EDIT:  Using the random number generator at, the winners were determined to be Wafflezombie and Pablo.  Congratulations, you’ve been contacted.  Thanks so much to everyone else for entering. The book is still well worth $17, pick up a copy!
