I'm personally hoping that ADD or Mystery Theater win, because they showcase the spirit of the Comics forum best. And I don't even like Mystery Theater.

After reading all the entries, I felt the one I liked best was City of Wretches. It instilled me with the best feeling of mystery that also provided an amazing visual experience.The other entries are very good, too, though. Best of luck to all! :)

I loved both City of Wretches and Lightkeepers, but City of Wretches won out. It's just too awesome.

I'm actually kinda sad to see that Corruption didn't make it this far (its story was my favorite among all of the entries).A lot of good comics here. A comic isn't just story-driven nor does it rely on imagery; a good comic has a balance of script and visual aid in my opinion. I'd have to say that the entry in this contest that is the most balanced in this respect is City of Wretches.

In the end, for me, it was down to "City of Wretches" and "Lightkeepers." Both were exceedingly well drawn, but in the end the atmosphere and length of the former won me over.

All of these entries were great, but "At the End of the Tunnel" was my favorite. It was very well drawn and well created in general.-xon

I had to vote for City of Wretches. I really liked Lightkeepers and the end of the tunnel, and those three were all good in different ways. But CoW won out because of length, and that wickedly awesome Hakann.

I personally would vote for Uncle K's if this was an art contest that specifically focused on pure ART!But city of Wretches won me over because of how his story was written. I wish he would keep writing comics...

I think City of Wretches deserves victory. It has such a brilliant comic art style, and the plot provides welcome depth.

Mystery Theater is my single choice to win this thing. I feel it's the only comic that properly grasped the feel I was expecting from a submission for a mystery-themed comic contest. A Dark Deed was a close second, well-written, funny, excellent art--but, as a mystery, it didn't satisfy me, and art and jokes have to defer in this case to mystery quality of plot.Sincerely, Nuile: Lunatic Wordsmith :smilemirunu:
