Two larger new editions of Craig Thompson's autobiographical graphic novel Blankets came out yesterday from Top Shelf, reprinting the Eisner Award-winning book about Thompson's first love as a young man from a deeply religious family. Thompson newest work, the much-anticipated Islamic-lore-inspired Habibi, hits stores in a few week from Pantheon Books, and to celebrate both works we're holding a contest to win a signed hardcover edition of Blankets signed with an original sketch by Craig Thompson.

How To Enter:

1) Go on to Facebook and "Like" the Top Shelf page.

2) Come back here (congratulations, you already are if you're reading this!) and leave a comment about why you enjoy the work of Craig Thompson and/or why you think you should win this contest.

3) We'll randomly choose three winners on Tuesday, August 16th.


The grand prize winner will receive a new, hardcover edition of Blankets that is personalized and signed by Craig Thompson, and will include an original sketch in the book.

Two runners-up will receive a tri-fold (seen in the photo above) from this year's San Diego Comic-Con signed by Craig Thompson.

New editions of Blankets are available at fine comic shops in your neighborhood or online from Top Shelf. Craig Thompson's latest graphic novel Habibi is availble for pre-order on, and is now on-sale.
