Chance to win David Lloyd art, courtesy of Panel Nine

Kickback art by David Lloyd
Panel Nine, the "deluxe digital graphic novel" publisher, is giving away an original page of black and white artwork by V for Vendetta artist David Lloyd.

The artwork is taken from from the Kickback graphic novel by Lloyd, recently re-published digitally for the iPad.

Panel Nine Publisher Russell Willis noted: "This is a rare opportunity to get a fabulous piece of original comics artwork by renowned artist David Lloyd. Kickback is a memorable work that is now getting the attention it deserves. It is a brilliant crime-noir thriller by a modern-day master of sequential art."

Kickback is a 96 page full-color graphic novel for the iPad with many behind-the-scenes extras, an exclusive interview with Lloyd and audio commentaries by the artist on his approach and method. The Kickback iPad app is available from the iTunes App Store:

To enter to win this awesome piece of original artwork, just download and subscribe to INFINITY (itunes link), a free iPad magazine about digital comics and graphic novels, also published by Panel Nine, and tap OK give your name and email address when subscribing.

The deadline for entries is 7th September 2012 and the draw for the artwork will be held on 8th September in London, England.
