November Product Review Contest Winners Announced

December 5th, 2013 Comments off

Empowered Deluxe Edition Volume 1 HC review at TFAW.comOh my stars and garters! With so many amazing product reviews to choose from last month, it was nearly impossible to narrow the field down for this month’s picks. However, we’ve sifted through the hundreds and hundreds of great reviews and hand picked three of our favorites as part of our monthly Product Review Contest. Below, you’ll see who won from November’s Product Reviews. $25 TFAW gift certificates are on the way to the folks who posted them.

Blake from Grand Rapids, MI stopped by with his five star review of Adam Warren’s Empowered Deluxe Edition Volume 1 HC:

“Empowered” is just a constant enjoyment to be had. Warren manages to make each panel fun and keeps the reader invested in the characters. You get to see how frail many of the characters are even when they have amazing abilities. The deluxe edition is worth the price and more. Didn’t want to put it down until my hands got tired of holding it.

Afterlife With Archie #1 review at TFAW.comOur second winner is Darryl from Midway, TN. He had this to say about Afterlife With Archie #1 (Seeley Variant Cover):

Picked this issue up just to see, now cannot wait till the next issue hits! This series is gold! Roberto and Francesco are tops and no one could do this better! Must Read!!

Velvet #1 review at TFAW.comLast but not least, Mike from North Charleston, SC wrote a review for the Velvet #1 by Ed Brubaker that we had to share:

Brubaker can really do no wrong! What a great way to open up a new spy series that is set in the past. Like always he has great art to back up his imaginative story by Epting. Fresh new book with an excellent leading lady. This book promises to only get better. Get into this series now if you haven’t yet!

Thanks so much to everyone who wrote reviews last month. You’re helping people decide what to get (or what to avoid) next.

Remember, you don’t have to write a novel to win. Product reviews can be short and sweet, or highly detailed — as long as they help other customers, that’s what we’re looking for. So submit your reviews and help your fellow collectors sort out the “HOT” from the “NOT”! Who knows, you may be one of next month’s winners.

HOW TO SUBMIT A PRODUCT REVIEW:
It’s simple! Just visit any product page and look for this:

Click on it and our product review form will appear in a popup. Just fill out the pertinent information and submit your review, and you’re done! We’ll take a look at your review and get it up on the product page soon thereafter!

There’s also a really easy way for you to call up everything you’ve ever ordered from us and review it. Simply log in to your account and go into the Order History Section. Next to each item, you’ll see a “Review it!” link.
