MAGISTELLE - Bold and very attractive colors, and actually a very satisfying storylien for such a short comic. Kudos!
SEAN - You're one of my fave artists in this tourney - really awesome, strong stuff! Nothing like a cold beer and hot fruit.

MAGISTELLE- You definitely knew who you were fighting against and modified accordingly. To go from moody and macabre to comedy in the second round was such a whiplash move, but it works! Definitely a testament to the versatility of the artist and your story telling chops.

SEAN- OH. MY. GOSH. XDD Its really the unexpected comics that leaves me leaning their way. I did not see this coming and I'm so glad I didn't. The initial shock, to laughter to ridiculousness was rampant reading thiscomic and I loved it. Way to go balls to the wall!

Maaags Im so happy so see you back on void again! I feel like you handled Dale's character really well into Gumshoe's storyline and maan you totally got down those dramatic blacks and strong shadows to create that intense mood, great stuff!

Astro Sean: The red and pink made a really nice colour scheme to set the tone! All that drama and you still managed to put your own quirky charm into it, I love it. "I don't have legs"  was my favourite line, had to literally pause reading since it gave me an unexpected chuckle haha

I loved both of these, but I gave the edge to Sean for utilizing those two mysterious agent guys, and upping the stakes by making Gumshoe and Dale lovers.  I felt more intrigue with his comic, although Magistelle's was definitely a lot of fun, too.

Magistelle- Your comics are such eye candy, I can't handle. I thought it was funny you both went in the same general direction too, albeit in different ways. I definitely get the sort of shows you're referencing with this and it works perfectly for Gumshoe, plus it was funny to see Gumshoe as anything other than the super straightlaced, dark antivillain he is.

Astro Sean- Scandalous, unexpected. When will Void be a city where a man can love a strawberry without judgement? Maybe if Gumshoe bothered to put some clothes on before potentially giving a delivery boy or prying neighbor a peepshow, he would have gotten to see that happen. Anyway, this comic was hilarious in a dark way and I loved it. One question I'm dying to know. Who's boxers are those? Does Dale have underwear of himself, or is Gumshoe so enthralled with their tryst he had to go out and buy underwear with Dale's face on it?

Magistelle... hot DAMN your comics are just so striking. I really really love the sunset colors.  Gumshoe used to be quite the looker, huh?

Astro Sean... "A Cold Beer and a Hot Fruit," handcuffs, smoking through the stomach-mouth... I can't even. Dale too much for words, and his tragic loves and losses are no exception.

At first I thought it was like "oh oh oh yes! silly cheesy fluff that is fun"

and then it went straight to "oh god... this is silly cheesy fluff... that's tragic backstory"

Well played. Im ruined now.
