Because we are awesome, Dark Horse Comics sent the Mercury a few copies of MySpace Dark Horse Presents Volume 3 to give away on Blogtown. Yes. Give away. FOR FREE.

You're probably already familiar with MDHP—yeah, yeah, it was recently nominated for an Eisner for best comics anthology or whatever, but far more importantly, the Mercury's own Ann Romano wrote a comic that was published in MDHP's previous volume. While Volume 3 doesn't contain any Romano goodness (BOO!), it is loaded with all sorts of other great stuff—including a Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog story, "Moist," by Zack Whedon and Farel Dalrymple; not one but TWO Buffy stories (one about Harmony, by Jane Espenson and Karl Moline, and another about Vampy Cat, by Steven S. DeKnight and Camilla d'Errico); an Achewood story by Chris Onstad, a Usagi Yojimbo story by Stan Sakai; a Serenity story by Jim Krueger and Will Conrad; and TONS more, including work by brilliant creators like Mike Mignola and Becky Cloonan. In other words: There's tons of killer stuff in here.

We have two copies to give away, and here's how you can score one of 'em: Email me no later than 4 pm on Monday, August 10, and make sure your subject line is "Moist." At 4 pm on Monday, I'll pick two winners at random* and email them back to let 'em know how to get their free funnybooks.

What're you waiting for? FREE COMICS. Get on this shit already!

*Flattery helps.
