I'm glad you linked to this in the "VOID Moments" thread, Jackster; it was a fun read!  Nutty stealing Croc Gaspard's moustache was my favorite moment, I can tell you have a blast drawing Croc.

It's a real shame the rest of the comics were lost, I woulda liked to see 'em.

Since I said I was going to send my entry in, I have done so. So Bobo, check your PM.

I left it untouched and unedited even though I wanted to color in pages 6-13 like the rest of the pages, I'm not going to bother.

Same goes for any battle; just send me the images and link me to the comic page.

I'm almost positive these are gone forever. I had a total hard drive crash/failure/death but this comic is so old it might still be on my old old computer.... I'll check but chances are my pages shall never be seen again.

Fence - I think you probably could\'ve had the best chance of winning this thing if you finished, based on your high quality and humor, but as it wasn\'t finished, you lost points. Still, you know I love your stuff to death, and I\'m looking forward to your next bit of work.

Mecid - Your comic was a bit difficult to read at times, I think you could stand to vary your line-widths more, or find some way to make your foregrounds pop more. The first panel of page 3 really hit me as the best example of this, as I wasn\'t sure what the focus of the art was. The story had some great gags in it, so props for writing.

Red - Definitely not your best art. I\'m sure you have your reasons, but that doesn\'t change what you turned in. The lettering, while a little rushed and messy, actually fit your comic surprisingly well. The story wasn\'t terribly creative or entertaining, but I figured it was for the same reasons as your quality issues.

Hiemie - You had the most finished comic in the contest, so I think the win should go to you. The jokes were awesomely funny as always, and it\'s always good to know that a writer can poke fun at themselves too (don\'t make a habit out of it though). All in all, great stuff and I\'m glad to see you deliver a high quality comic experience.

Jackster - Like Hieimie, you had a well-done and high-quality comic. However, yours wasn\'t as finished, so I didn\'t rate you higher than his. Good story, good art; the only thing that was missing was an ending. I\'d like to see it finished, so don\'t let me down!

Delya - You already know my thoughts.

votes to Hiemie for pulling through.

agree with Psycho Sean! Hieme\'s comic was laugh after laugh all in a fantastic row of unstoppable entertainment. It was all frolicking around when I read it XD In fact, it brightened my day and in fact I’m gonna go and read it again now, until it turns boring and that\'s gonna take a while.

Fence, I enjoyed your comic cause it flows really nicely… I don’t know how you get it but you should keep doing it! I didn’t like your version of Nowhere Boy, but all the other characters looked real cool! Specially The Fishboy. I felt the comic was kinda pointless but that’s probably cause it was incomplete. But every panel was pretty amusing so I guess everything’s ok :>

 Mecid, Hiemie, I can’t decide between you guys. Mecid’s comic was great, and the story was solid and …. interesting XD Now that I’m reading it again it doesn’t stop making me smile.

Jackster if you win this, I’m expecting a BB. I’m a little confused at this point XD

RedRevolver…. That story was twisted and freaky XD GOOD. Most of things were kinda unexpected. And though it wasn’t your best at drawing, it kept me reading and interested uvu.

haha heimies got the best one in my opinion, and probably one of his funniest comic so far.
i like trhe part when the creator hiemie came and summed the other, didn\'t see that coming!!

but poor lysol, his old fighter got killed, but to be called the cities gettest hero is pretty fucking cool.
and if delva reads this, hope hope youm get throw what going on in life so can start battling agian!

I didn\'t think it was \"So bad that clue will never happen again\", I just thought that most people in this just didn\'t have the heart to continue.

Fence: Like dawg said: STOP HATING YOURSELF!! I think you\'re a great artist and this comic was pretty funny, I am kinda disappointed that you didn\'t get to finish, but there\'s always next time. Your comic to me was very entertaining and I really look forward to other comics or characters that you\'ll make in the next 3 months, honest.

Mecid: Out of all the comics, yours was the most complete and well thought out and paced comic I read. I loved the visuals you used when silhouetting Veronica, and damn are you mean! My only complaint is that I would of loved to see some colors and the comic ended a bit too quickly for me. My vote went to you.

Redrevolver: I love TL Bot, but I wasn\'t as thrilled with this comic as I was with your other comics in the past. This was just too rushed of an entry, and I wish you would of given yourself the time to do this and give it the proper polish. Look forward to your next fight.

Hiemie: Stop being so bitter! >:I    Seriously though, a nice and random comic... but... you just didn\'t seem to have your heart in this one it seems. I know you can do some clever stuff when you\'re motivated, but this was just \"I\'m going to throw jokes at ya and hope something sticks, oh and Konchuu man was killed as well...\". Take a break dude, try to recharge that sacred comic book spark that you once had!

Jackster: Overall dude, your comic had the most promise and well thought out story of them all, it seemed more like a murder mystery than anything else. Visually you had it in the bag, however I kinda thought it was a bit strange that the whole damaged film look suddenly fades away after the first few pages and suddenly reappears at the end. Speaking of the end, I did like the murder story you had planned... but that inside joke about Lysol\'s Kayak just made me roll my eyes and say \"Oh please... he\'s ending his murder mystery like that?!\" Don\'t get me wrong though, I gave you high marks, but the whole \"To be continued...\" kinda ruined a great comic you had going dude.

Delya: Well... shit happens, right?


My first place vote went to Mecid, but it was 1 point above Jackster. Speaking of Jackster... finish that comic ASAP!

Delya - I actually wished you had just posted what you had. From what you did post, it seems to me it would have been fine; even if it was unfinished it would have been carried by your fun, expressive art style. Don\'t worry about it, though; stuff happens and it\'s totally understandable. I\'ll be keeping an eye on your GFB thread. :3

Jackster - My favorite entry; I hope you put up the second part soon. I liked the old \'toon feel of it. The dialogue often felt awkward, however, such as on page 3:
\"I kept thinking to myself that something fishy is about to happen tonight in this mansion I\'m going to.\"
..Just sounds unnatural when you think about how people actually talk and think. It would have sounded better as something like
\"I thought to myself, \'something fishy is about to happen.\'\" Because the fact that he\'s referring to the mansion would have been assumed.

I didn\'t figure out the mystery, though.. am I missing something or am I just dense?

Heimie - The first few pages were the best; after that, you had some good ideas that should have been funny but I just wasn\'t feeling it... I guess it was due to your getting bored as you said. I didn\'t always grasp what was happeing either, especially in your comic strips where the drawings were very tiny. The ending came out of nowhere and was completely rediculous but I thought it was funny anyways. Beans..

Red - Extremely sloppy and disjointed, but it was still lots of fun. I appreciate that you jumped right into it with a joke in the very first panel :3 I wish you had had more free time to work on this, as I\'m sure it would have been so much better. I really can\'t comment more since it was so rushed.
The meat page.. what the hell haha. The fish-eyed guy with a fistfull of meat could have been at home on Invader Zim.
page 9-- HEEYYYYYYY those are *boxers*! >:O

Mecid - Your drawings look very cluttered.. You can usually tell what\'s going on after looking at it a couplea seconds, but I think it would have helped clarity if you had maybe added some shadows/shading in a few places? (I\'m sorry I\'ve at thiss too long and I\'m getting tired).. also on the last page the panels are a bit too small. It\'s hard to read the text.
But yes it was a good story, besides Jackster\'s the most well-developed and coherant. Good show sir.

Fence - You had some funny stuff and I was getting into it.. then you stopped :< I wish you had at least given it an ending, even if it was just something thrown together last-mintue. \'Cause now I can\'t battle you for three months! >:O

I\'m sorry to say that the event turned out to be something of a let-down since most of these are unfinished or rushed. My votes go to Jackster on this.

I don\'t have time to give long comments but..  Only two people didn\'t meet the requirements.  Fence and Delya.

Fence - Yours was looking so awesome and probably could\'ve won.  Stop hating on yourself/procrastinating and just do stuff.

Mecid - Yours will make the most sense to everyone on the site.  The ending was really great, as was the rest of the story.

Lady Red - You did all of that insanely quickly, and that\'s really impressive and all, but it\'s pretty sloppy, and doesn\'t make sense sometimes.  It\'s funny, though.

Hiemie - I could tell you lost interest.  It started out brilliant, then fizzled really quickly after a few pages.  I actually thought the art was the redeeming factor.  Long deadlines probably aren\'t meant for you, though.. since you\'ve had this problem with them before, and always rock the fuck out of shorter ones.

Jackster - In my mind, you solved Kameoka\'s death, and that was a hilarious conclusion.  I KNOW who the killer is based on it.  I\'d go as far as to say that\'s how it should end, but I\'m sure a lot of people won\'t get it, and that might hurt you in votes.

Delya - You really could\'ve just posted the pages individually.  Though, I think I know why you didn\'t.  Well, it LOOKED like it would\'ve been great.  I\'m not really disappointed by the technical default, but I am kind of disappointed that you didn\'t listen to my advice.  Let yourself have some fun for once ; 3;

I can\'t honestly give high votes to those fights that didn\'t meet the requirements. I\'m seeing half that didn\'t solve Mr. Kameoka\'s death.

    * There\'s a minimum of 8 pages, and a maximum of 25 pages.
    * All characters must be included in your comic.
    * Mr. Kameoka\'s death must be solved.

As long as we are making excuses, here\'s mine! I have a classic case of biting off more than I could chew...  I had so many great ideas and my comic ended up being 16 pages. Between school, and work, other projects, and just life in general I had a hard time completing this... but I DID. There was no way I wanted to cut my story short... I\'ve been up till 3AM for the past few nights D: So yeah, some of the stuff may be sloppy, but it\'s all there. Definitely NOT by best work, but I think it\'s funny and I know you guys will too... and that\'s all I really care about honestly. Some parts are good, others are gross, but I think it\'s still enjoyable C:

I tried. I really freakin\' TRIED this time to write a good story and get a good flow going for this comic- but fuck. It took me over three weeks just to write a story that I enjoyed and while I was trying to rush the art, I just lost it. I couldn\'t work on it anymore- in fact, the whole fucking internet is something I\'ve been trying to avoid lately. It\'s really just sorta eating away at me and for the last couple weeks, I\'ve had little to no motivation to draw. My CTS is being a bitch and.. well, I\'ll spare you all the excuses.

Bottom line: I suck and I\'m seriously not doing this again. I hate it when other people default and I never thought I\'d do the same- but I guess I\'m not cut out for this anymore. It\'s just way too difficult for me to write anything and I always hate my comics when they\'re done.

Good luck to everyone and I\'m so sorry for this. Maybe I\'ll post what I did in the forums sometime later, I dunno- but it\'s not worth posting here. Not at all.

I sent in my comic to Wei.

I finished the comic, but I couldn\'t finish the story in time. BUT WORRY NOT! I have left some clues around that leads to the true killer of my entry, especially the big clue in the last page. So until I have the time to create Part 2, you\'ll get this.

Between lack of motivation, and slowly dying markers, and other things.

I need a break. I\'m simply not feeling it. Not here at least.

At least this comic is funny. I hope someone is entertained.
