That'll just about do it, I think.
I was pretty pleased with how this contest turned out. I handed out a lot of "good" ratings. I thought it was especially interesting that so many people chose to use a part of the background as their non-human character; I had expected to see mostly animals and a few props.
And now it's time to announce the winner. But first, to keep you all in suspense for a little longer, let's list a few Honorable Mentions.
The Marlboro Man Award, which comes with a coupon for $500 off a tracheotomy, goes to four_legged_tripod for:
[Click to view comic: 'Smoke 'Em While You Got 'Em']
The Calvin's Dad Award for Best Use of Character goes to edoggydog for:
[Click to view comic: 'Groovy! - Hyp-mo-tized']
The Alexander Ivanovich Dubrovin Award for Excellence in Comics that Require Knowledge of Russian History goes to kaufman for:
[Click to view comic: 'The Killing of Rasputin: Part 7']
But as good as those comics were, you all got your asses beat by biped, who turned in two excellent comics, either one of which would be a worthy winner in its own right:
[Click to view comic: 'The New Happy-Time Crab Show']
[Click to view comic: 'Muffin' It']
Congratulations, biped! Now give us a comic contest that doesn't taste like it was made from some crappy mix.
The what mentioned above is total fiction. Please don't take it seriously!
