Gigantic FLATS and the FIRST TEN
In order to show our gratitude to the first ten people who supported us by purchasing Gigantic Issue #1, each of the FIRST TEN will receive a FLAT. A FLAT is an item specially designed for Gigantic. In this case the FLAT is either one limited edition print from Andrew Bulger, or an original illustration by Nat Russell, both of whom were featured in the first issue of Gigantic.
