Ho sh** This is gonna be a close one! Both of these were just too epic!
Tin, I really liked your ending, it wasn't just an ending for the battle, but for the entire tournament. Very nice.

Kinu: Chubby-Morrow has to be pretty much the cutest thing in this tournament! Very entertaining comic and a cool match-up. You created one of the most defining characters of this tournament (all the fanart attests to that)... sorry to see the tournament end but hopefully it's not the end of Jimmy!

Tin: A truly epic showdown worthy of the final round! It's amazing that you were able to fit every character in there. Really dynamic shots, engaging story, and a brilliant tribute to the tournament as a whole.

Amazo Bobo: Let me just start by thanking you for commenting and recognizing what a massive undertaking this was. I think the past two months of continuous hardcore battles topped off with this massive event was BY FAR THE BIGGEST ARTISTIC UNDERTAKING OF MY LIFE.  I may have overshot the mark but I felt I owed appearances to ALL the participants, we started out as FIFTY plus and fought our way to this- and there were some tough fights and hard calls along the way. Wrapping up so many characters plot lines- all the friends our characters made along the way, and the enemies needed to be included. This chapter of Void history, I feel, is JUST THE BEGINNING OF A NEW GOLDEN AGE! With all this passion and new members and new stories to be told, I wanted to do it justice by tying it all up and setting the stage for whatever comes after. *cough*massivegangwars*cough

Counting them up now- I did 70 pages in two months... god. It's some of my best work ever and I'm quite proud of it. Having the whip of the tournament and the crowds expectations truly drives your creative spirit and production rate. I don't know how the professionals manage 22 pages a month- doing nearly thirty in 2 weeks pretty much stole my life... I hear that's the secret to success and happiness. FIND SOMETHING YOU LOVE AND LET IT KILL YOU.

By living a comic life- every spare moment of a day is spent feverishly hammering away at pages. If that means several weeks of sleepless nights, disappearing from the world or chaining yourself to the desk- so be it. Fierce dedication to improvement, relentless work ethic and a willingness to make sacrifices to give the world the gift of your art. I've never pushed myself so hard or done such  a difficult epic comic before with so many characters and elements. If nothing else I learned the maximum capability of my time management. I don't think I would recommend my way of making comics to the faint of heart, as mine quite literally  made my hearts skip a beat on several occasions.

Animeshen, Zest, Vid: My sincere thanks for commenting!

TKDZen: Thanks for the props, glad to have more of Kinuchio's friends aboard. As it is in the massive arena battle, so it should be among our creative peers- THE MORE THE MERRIER I SAY! Jimmy is backpacking Morrow around- spreading his magic seeds to grow the massive vines to catch the burning blimp before it smooshes all the innocent audience members. I straight up ran out of ink in the end and had to microwave my Pitt pens to get more ink out of them- hmm not sure why Faber Castle felt the need to put metallic labels on them... Microwave lightning is always thrilling but Im pretty sure they'd just prefer people buy more pens.

How do you guys whip out so much awesome stuff in two weeks?! I'm amazed. Both stories were solid, although I did have a few moments of confusion in Tinman's because of unfinished panels and stuff. But seriously, I don't know how you even got as much done as you have there. Both stories were awesome! Can't wait to see more of you guys.

Great job guys! I loved both of your comics! I'm a big fan of you both! Tinman, I love your stye because its close to something I've been trying to achieve with my own, with the way your lines remind me of old school comic linework. Though i didn't exactly understand visually what Jimmy and Morrow did in page 24(i believe) when the blimp was falling and when the explosion was absorbed. Also, there were a lot of places where people were just sketches, so that kind of took away from it all in my book, but your panel work(or lack thereof) was amazing as well. Kinuchio, or Celery(wtf lol), I Loved your comedic references, bro! But there were inconsistencies in the character drawing(i had same problem lol), but you know that already. just try to keep it consistent

Otaku: Hope you liked my rendition of Tsumi there, I wanted to include all 50 some entrants in the tourney just to pay my respects to all their hard work along the way. It's been a wild ride and they al deserved a last moment to shine. See if you can't find them all! There's your WHERES WALDO!

DX: Egads yes my flaming loaves zeppelin was indeed a personal highlight. I would not recommend not sleeping for a week while making a comic- strange ideas brew! I've also been watching Game of Thrones the whole time which my have slipped some inspiration into the mix. Hungry is in there somewhere, see if you can find him along with a few other choice characters not limited to tourney participants!

Con: I'm bummed to hear about your wrist. I've had major arm issues the past few years that have slowed my art down, fighting through the pain is just part of the process now. The joys of being a veteran artist. Take care of yourself- don't push it. Give yourself time to heal, you have a lifetime of beautiful art ahead of you brother. We shall see your story when you're able. I look forward to it. I think having to survive this extended tournament process put a ton of pressure on all the three of us, I've never had to draw so much, so furiously in such a short span of time. It's been the challenge of a lifetime. One I will never forget.

KinuCELERY? now, are we?: I figured the dynamic duo of Jimmy and Joe had only made it thus far due to some divine lineage and some killer hair product- if nothing else we've become brothers in arms for surviving this whole tourney together. You have my utmost respect and I wanted to tie up all of Jimmy's plot lines as well as Joe's. Resolving the mother issue was just something I couldn't pass up. Although he does have Catbutt's sweet booty. Hmm A mystery for another day.

Lovely little comic and well within the confines of Toro's character. The people demanded an Avant Guardians' vs comic and you delivered. I think our new gang allegiances should make for some massive BATTLE ROYALES in the future and I just wanted to tie up every thing from the tournament while setting up THE FUTURE OF VOID WE WILL ALL WRITE TOGETHER!

 Haha! This was totally worth the wait!

 Jimmy: Solid line work, great story! Fat morrow was hilariously cute. I literally lolled at "C'mon. You know you've always wanted to throw a fat kid." and Otis' pokerface. I did not see a single piece of celery.....

 Tinman: Great work as always, although I know you're dying inside because of the unpolished parts of your comic. (Haha. I know you were super excited about the blimp.) I love that Jimmy and Joe are possibly bastard brothers. Hilarious....and so many cameos..

 CON: :C  I'm so sad you couldn't make it and sorry to hear about your wrist. Was really looking forward to your comic.

 Overall, Great job you guys! I'm sure it's gonna be a close one!

Dude, seriously, I loved yours so much.

Edit: Sorry, but Hats jumped on the celery thing and won. She found em all!~

Cool, man! Looking forward to it! Also, hey guys! I uploaded mine, so no defaulting on this end. However, thanks to Hats, I put in a little game. There are 9 pieces of Celery that look like broccoli hidden throughout the first nine pages. If you think you spotted them all, hit me up with a PM. First one to find them all gets fanart or somethin, I dunno.

This round will be a forfeit due to injuring my wrist which is why you haven't seen me around much. Enough of the excuses though, you guys deserve a nice round which will be up when I'm on the mend. Best of luck to both of you.

Not to worry, my brother in arms- Joey Toro intends to do a bit of butchering on both your characters as well. I shall see you quite soon on the field of battle I'm afraid. Till then, GODSPEED YOUR DRAWING ARMS!

Considering Morrow and Jimmy are buds and all, Joe will probably step in take the prize while they're busy being nice to each otherl ;)
