Thanks for the comments and the votes everyone!!
Man, would people stop saying i didn\'t put any effort into the pages? geez. Say you wish they were finished or something.. but don\'t go saying i put no effort into it. If you knew how i worked my ass off just to get them done so i didn\'t have to default. I wish i wasn\'t so busy (and  screwed over with scanner problems) that i could\'ve done 9 pages of all A quality... actually.. i kinda wanted 10 pages so it wouldn\'t end so abruptly. They were all supposed to look like page 4.. but anyway...
Kid that was a nice battle.. but it was kinda f-ed up visually. I personally didn\'t care about the text.. happens to us all.Jjust that everything was kinda blurry and stuff. Looks like you had too much crammed into one page. BUT.. it was still cool, and it looks like you got me beat this time!. Sorry i couldn\'t give you something better to go up against.
See you kids on the flip side!!

Tough to decide. Kids had a lot of great imagery that would have worked alot better had their been a bit more seperation and a little less chaos in the paneling. obviously the heavy blacks and blurriness wernt the way to go as well as the tough to read font. I think it was more enjoyable of a read though as eyestraining as it was.

Matt it looks like you put a good thought into this but not much effort when it came to drawing. your panel layouts are great but it seems like after that you just drew exactly what you wanted to happen without really strengthening your images with any forshortening or dynamic. you basically draw all the characters the same exact size save a few panels. Even the thumnails make that obvious. it was a really well thought out fight that showed you got some good storytelling but the execution seemed a little weak. and the little bit of color you did put doesnt feel right with everything else being pencil gray and hardly no black at all.

I gave this one to Kid but it was a close one

First off, good job on both your parts--I enjoyed both comics.

Kid- Everything I\'m gonna say has most likely been said already (blurry, difficult to read the font--sucks that it didn\'t turn out how you\'d hoped), but one thing I personally see in your work is that action panels are smaller than what I\'d see.  This is just a personal thing, since I tend to make my action panels eat up the page, leaving me little room for anything else, but in this case, it seemed to be the other way around.  The action took place in smaller panels, making it seem less important.  I\'m not really sure if what I\'m saying makes all that much sense, and it\'s not something that HAS TO BE WORKED ON, but it\'s something I noticed and wanted to comment on.

Also--since action is really the only thing I comment on--I found some of the action to be unclear.  What happens in the fight happens very quickly, not giving the audience time to recognize that something has happened--like on page 7, panel 5--even though that\'s Kid crashing into the ground, it could also be mistaken for a random projectile hitting the ground.  Page 8 to me was pretty chaotic--and while a close-in fistfight is very jarring and, yeah, chaotic, it was still difficult to follow the action going on.

Matt-  AWRIGHT, no neon text boxes!  All jokes aside, and as easy as your comic was to read, it felt a little sparse at times.  There was a lot of WHITE negative space (this is something I\'m guilty of too) which could be filled in with crosshatching or gradation or somesuch, but like I said, I\'m not really one to talk on that.

The action was sharp, as usual, although the spot-coloring for the powers is still something that isn\'t personally something I jive with.  Large-scale action scenes are difficult to do, but you handled these well.

My votes go to Matt by just a notch, since his comic was easier to follow.

kid: maybe if you resize the image first, and then add the text? resizing text doesn\'t work too well if it\'s not in proportion. Art-wise, I thought it was pretty good. Jumbled and difficult to follow, but still pretty good. I did take the time to read through the text, and I thought your story was pretty tight. I thought the Dae v. p2 cameo was clever. Next time try not to cram so much in, yeah? Too little space for too much action; spread it out, less is more. Not bad overall, just needs finishing.

Matt: I liked your stuff, and I thought your action scenes were hot. Resizing your images would help, especially if they\'re all uniform. That last pose of the \"real\" Lee could use some work, he looks like he\'s gonna fall backward. Other than that, I just wish that you finished more of it, in terms of shading and rendering and stuff.

Matt gets my votes.

yah.....I couldn\'t understand or see almost anything in your battle Kid.......it was all muddy and unclear visually....the technique you used should be more polished if you are gonna use it again

Matt....yer improving...I also wish that you had put more time into this...(look who\'s talking)

Yea.. mainly my pages were to be cleaned up on my comp.. borders, replace some text, etc.. but my scanner\'s dead. Getting a new one with my new paycheck. So basically when it came time to scan in pages it took FOREVER just to scan them in.. and so closer to submission time i had to just put them up or risk defaulting.
But anyway.. that\'s an explanation.. not an excuse.. so go ahead and penalize me for it. I\'m just glad that quality is only one of the three voting categories. I still worked my ass off on the story and getting this all finished so i\'m not too upset with myself. Vote as you will.

Kid: You art in general is good. However your comic was hard to read/ follow. The text was extremely difficult to read. If you\'re using photoshop to create your text I recommend choosing the \"smooth\" option in the anti-alias drop down menu. Secondly you really hurt your comic with the zealous smudging and sloppy shading. Please don\'t stop experimenting with your art but remember to use a little bit of moderation.

Your inks in contrast to everything else look wonderful though!

Monkey: I loved the action sequences and the humor and dialogue. The work begged for inks though - or some kind of refinement. Over all, I enjoyed yours the most. It was easy to read, easy to follow and entertaining. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

both battles were good. kids was a little unclear and u could of used a different  font. lee\'s looked a little unfinished though. i thought kids was more entertaining with that dbz reference.

Yes Really, it\'s psychotically blurry, and the font is near unreadable without effort. Why the overuse of the fill tool.

And Esprito, I wish you woulda polished this fight more. It looks really unfinished.

I just hope my pages go through... if i default i\'ll just die of shame even though it\'s my scanners fault. 5mins PER PAGE to scan in... and there are 9 pages....
I wanted there to be one more page for flow reasons... but it\'ll just have to end abruptly i guess.

So.... tired....
so... very... tired...
As you know, though.. i NEVER default. Unless i\'m dying or my pages are destroyed in a freak accident. So you may notice a decline in the AWESOMENESS of the last few pages. I think. Depends on what i can whip out in these last few hours.
But... so.. tired.
