Congrats to Ruben G. of Los Angeles for winning a SanDisk Extreme II solid-state drive last week. This week, we have a gloriously geeky giveaway (and one that clearly appreciates alliteration).
We're offering a set of 52 DC Comics honoring Villains Month. But these aren't just any comic books. They feature special covers that use lenticular technology to showcase the likes of Lex Luthor, Deathstroke, and Harley Quinn in 3D -- without the need for annoying glasses. Most of these comics were allocated before they hit stores and sold out the week they were published, so they're hard to find.
As my comics-loving CNET colleague Seth Rosenblatt wrote in a story earlier this year, the covers showcase 3D motion without glasses by printing the artwork directly in the plastic. See his gallery below for more on how these lenticular covers were made.
Each book in the New 52 set sells for $3.99, and you'll be getting all of them, making this gorgeous geek gaggle worth about $208. So what do you have to do to win these collector's items? There are a few rules, so please read carefully.
