“Bill the Boy Wonder” book giveaway—win in six words!

It’s about two weeks till July 1, the official release date of Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman. (Amazon, however, has been shipping it for at least a month—earliest I heard from someone who’d received it was 5/16/12.)

So let’s count down with a contest.

It’s very simple.

In the comments section below, describe Bill Finger’s legacy…in exactly six words. (Speaking of credit, thank you, Smith Magazine.)

For example: “Add Finger’s name. Bill Bob Kane.”

I will give away signed copies of the book to the three people whose responses I like the best. (Get your random drawings elsewhere.)

Anything other than six words is ineligible. Important: Please either include your e-mail address or e-mail me separately (my e-mail is at top right) repeating your entry; if I cannot reach you, you cannot win!

If you are competitive, please spread the word!

The deadline is June 30, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. EST.

Winners will be announced here on July 1.

Books will be sent the following week.

And hopefully Bill’s story will be shared forevermore.

7/1/12 addendum: the winners.
