When we said we were going to announce the winner of the contest over the weekend I couldn’t help but laugh maniacally that it was April 1st. Just how bad of a comic could we make and say was the winner? Then the whole work thing got in the way and here we are. We had a plethora of entries with a particular contestant submitting 13 different ones.
Who then are the winners? The first prize goes to the entry picked by Zampzon, Phil Kahn, 7, Mr. Hian, and myself as our favorite. There were several really good strips ranging from single panel to the multi panel, from gag strips to complex stories. When it came down to the vote there was a tie that was only broken today. So the winner of prize #1 goes to Mike Laidman for this outstanding entry:
I know the winner in person! He should have used Megalomaniacon.
That is a good comic. I\’m going to keep the windex thing in mind for whenever I meet Phil.
If you just use a spray bottle full of water it keeps him from clawing the couch. It\’s what we have to do at the Washington Webtoonists meets when he shows up.
The art looks great – unfortunately, I can\’t read the fonts 🙁 – Any way we can see a larger version?
yeah, it\’s clickable, but his server seems to be down (possibly because of all the links he got from here?).
Though it\’s got me wondering who he was tied with before…
The link to his site is actually http://www.mikesstupidcomics.com, they seem to have forgotten an \”s\” on the link here. Check it out, he\’s got some awesome stuff up there!
Nice subtle plug Al
Congrats to Mike! That feminin iPod reminds me of \’Chews\’ candies. Anyone remember those? I think they sell them in bulk stores now.
I won?!? Oh man sweet! Thanks a lot guys. Can\’t wait to dig into those books! And… um… sip.. from that mug. RAWK!
Good luck to everyone else on the Random Draw!
And yes Dan\’s right, it is mikesstupidcomics.com. I hope people don\’t really start spraying Phil with windex. I mean Yeah I\’ll laugh at him but… come on.. that\’s just silly.
Actually since we\’re talking about goofy html mistakes, is it just me or did the DS site mutate a while back so that you could only see the archives?
When I come here the old banner isn\’t here, nor are the links that don\’t coincide to Blog posts (like the old We Love Webcomics section and the \”about us\” page for example).
Again, it might be something weird with my computer but I figured I\’d mention it since the topic was sorta kinda part of the discussion.
Mad props to you Mike. Very good comic. It was actually Mikes line \”First Digital Strips then … Europe!\” line that secured my vote.
It was a tough choice though, several really good ones. Great work everyone, thanks for playing.
The link to Mike\’s site has been fixed but in my defense I copied and pasted directly from the email. Of course since I\’m a tester by profession that\’s just the idiot\’s defense. Should have tried the link myself.
We\’re working on making the images larger in well formatted presentation but for now right click and view image.
Most of the mistakes on the site have probably been my fault as of lately as I try to transition into taking care of certain things. I\’m not use to this whole HTML thing!
Copied straight from the e-mail??? Then I am the party to blame. Figures when it was the most important time the one who goofs up the address is the guy who owns it. DURRRR. Thanks for the fix though!
