Contest: Win Awesome Watchmen Coffee Table Books!
by Alex Billington
February 17, 2009
Everyone should know that I'm a huge sucker for beautiful coffee table books (I've featured the Quantum of Solace book previously). So in honor of the upcoming release of Watchmen, Titan Books has provided us with a few copies of their gorgeous new Watchmen coffee table books: Watchmen: The Art of the Film, Watchmen: Official Film Companion, and Watchmen: Portraits. We don't usually run contests at all anymore, but this time I went to Titan begging to do this contest because I love these books so much and I wanted to treat some of our loyal readers with a few of them. So read on to find out how to win!
Even if you don't win this contest, I highly suggest you pick up these books, especially if you're a die-hard Watchmen fan. Not only do they give an incredible behind-the-scenes look at the process of converting the graphic novel to screen, but they'll truly immerse you in all of the brilliance that is Watchmen!

I just found out another about this contest to win tickets to the premiere. WATCHMEN COFFEE AND CONTEST STARTS TUESDAY 2/17 The Organic Coffee Cartel Introduces “Nite Owl Dark Roast” Coffee With a contest to win tickets to the Premiere of the Forthcoming Feature Film “Watchmen” NEW YORK— February 16, 2009. “Watchmen” photographer Clay Enos has enlisted his Organic Coffee Cartel (OCC®) http://www.organiccoffee.com to produce a first-of-its-kind movie tie-in coffee for “Watchmen,” the upcoming film adaption of the celebrated graphic novel. On Tuesday, February 17, OCC will introduce Veidt Enterprise’s “Nite Owl Dark Roast,” a limited-edition confection and collectible designed for fans and organic coffee gourmands alike. A portion of the proceeds from the special roast will be donated to charity. One side of the uniquely crafted steel can resembles artwork straight out of the “Watchmen” universe; the other side features Enos’ striking black & white portrait of Nite Owl, played in the film by Patrick Wilson. And with just ONE run of cans produced, this is sure to be a distinctive and rare collectible. “Making an imaginary coffee into something real seemed like a fitting and fun way to honor the multi-layered world of ‘Watchmen.’ And having a majority of profits go to charity seems a little like something Adrian Veidt would do,” says Enos. Further adding to the excitement, the OCC is sponsoring a contest for one lucky customer to win two tickets to the Los Angeles premiere and after-party for “Watchmen” on March 3rd, 2009. Orders must be placed before February 26th, 2009. Full contest rules here. “Zack Snyder and the other filmmakers got behind the coffee idea early on and suggested the contest to me. I am so excited by the idea of making someone's day not just with great coffee but with an opportunity to be a part of the celebration for the highly anticipated film,” says Enos. “It’s a dream in the making.” “Nite Owl Dark Roast” Coffee is only available online while supplies last through the OCC’s webstore at http://www.organiccoffee.com
