New contest: [REDACTED]'s "Conspiracy Friends: Vol. 1"

ETA: This contest is now closed. DebraG won the book!

This month I’m giving away a signed, limited-edition-hardcover copy of Matt Youngmark’s Conspiracy Friends, Volume 1: Clandestine Maneuvers in the Dark.

Conspiracy Friends is one of my favorite webcomics, about friends who investigate conspiracies together!

In Volume 1 you get to see it all from the beginning, as Tim tries to start a Conspiracy Club, but that doesn’t work out, but he DOES meet Wendigo Penelope, maybe the coolest person ever? I love Tim and Wendigo Penelope SO MUCH. I kind of ship it, honestly, although Wendigo Penelope has said she isn’t interested and I respect that.

You can also read the comic online here (or start from the beginning).

Full disclosure: Matt is a friend of mine and the designer of my stylish “The butler did her!” buttons. (He’s also running a kickstarter right now for Volume 3: Hot Vatican Nights, so if this seems like your thing, pledge today! 🙂

Included with the book are: 5×7 tie-in print of the Loch Ness monster subtitled “COME AT ME BRO”, set of character buttons, and one of my own Listen to the Moon buttons!

51bOIqCM1FL._SX490_BO1,204,203,200_All Tim wants is to find friends among like-minded conspiracy enthusiasts. But when Wendigo Penelope shows up at Conspiracy Club, the black helicopters follow, and they soon find themselves on the run from shadowy forces they can’t begin to comprehend. Along with semi-competent CIA operative Steve and beleaguered newspaper intern Marcie, Wendigo and Tim will have to unravel a web of intrigue that leads them deeper and deeper into the belly of the beast (which is a pretty mixed metaphor, but trust us, that’s the least of their problems). CLANDESTINE MANEUVERS IN THE DARK collects the first six chapters of the Conspiracy Friends webcomic, and includes a 5-page bonus story available exclusively in this book.

I put together my cookies this morning. I was going to start posting them next Tuesday but I had an extra, so here you go! Thought I’d start with this one since I was getting emotional about Phoebe’s sister Helen last night. Featuring a cameo of the new Mrs. Gilchrist, and the promise of a makeover!
