The envelope, please!
Actually, it wasn’t an envelope, it was a bowl with carefully folded pieces of paper in it, on which were written the names of each of the entrants in our Color of Earth giveaway. In order to ensure a truly random drawing, I had my four-year-old neice pick the winners; like many four-year-olds, she is a natural-born randomness generator.
Here are the lucky winners, in the order in which they were drawn:
Each of you will receive the three-volume set The Color of Earth, The Color of Water, The Color of Heaven, by Kim Dong Hwa, courtesy of First Second Books. Please e-mail your mailing address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can get these books to you (and out of my living room).
Everybody who entered was asked to name their favorite kids’ or teens’ comic of the year. As some people e-mailed their entries, I will save these for a separate post.
