Webcomic Contest Winner Announced and Gallery Is Live

[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/content/webcomic]

The Webcomic Contest has ended! A winner has been announced, and our webcomic gallery is now available for your viewing pleasure.

Thank you to everyone who participated in The Escapist's first ever Webcomic Contest! We had a massive turnout, and it was great to see so many different styles and genres of webcomics. Due to the variety of creativity and talent, we decided to make all of the webcomics available for your enjoyment in a 21 page gallery. The webcomics may differ in writing, drawing or illustration, but they've all got one thing in common: the amount of heart participants put in to making them! Take a look at our webcomic gallery, and enjoy!

And the Winner Is...

After going through over 350 webcomic submissions, we have come to a final decision on the winner. A hearty congratulations and the grand prize contract go to [user]Decoy Doctorpus[/user] for their submission Out of Tens!

Additionally, there were also 17 entries that stuck out for our judges. Since we could only award one grand prize, we decided to give them "Honorable Mentions" and these webcomics have their own page in the gallery. The honorable mentions go to:

[user]cbthomas218[/user] for IM!
[user]Archemetis[/user] for MiniGames
[user]Furrama[/user] for The Interwebz
[user]Coelasquid[/user] for Manly Guys Doing Manly Things
[user]Space Jawa[/user] for Robot Viking Ninja Pirates
[user]MaTT2011[/user] for Difficulty Up
[user]andidas311[/user] for Paused
[user]Lysgaard[/user] for Bumhug Parade
[user]DariusPoyer[/user] for Fables from the Rift
[user]DoanDavid[/user] for Inglorious Slayers
[user]liludallasmultipass[/user] for Space Monkeys from Space
[user]Eyeshock[/user] for Anubis
[user]Conicon[/user] for Girlies Don't Game
[user]psudonym[/user] for The Escapist Radio Theater
[user]Leels[/user] for Name Game
[user]maxbola[/user] for The Last Shot
[user]bryantpaul[/user] for Dropped Frames

It's good to know that the guy who won was a notable Escapist as opposed to some yahoo who joined just for the contest.
I am saddened that I couldn't join due to my art monkey having priorities.

Speaking as one of these "yahoo"s, some of us are just not vocal forum-goers by nature.

Either way, the winning comic is pretty good looking and downright hilarious, so mad props and swallowed prides go out to the authors!

This has proven more depressing than it was worth. I didn't even make honorable mention.

Congrats to the winner.

Well, I may not have won, which is sad, but at least Zolf and I got an honorable mention, and I can't possibly complain about that.

Congrats to the rest of the honorable mentions, and a special congrats to Decoy Doctorpus for winning. Have fun with your grand prize!

Ha! Nice! Should've known I wouldn't make it, due to my lack of writing skills. But ah well, fun none the less.

Hey! I want a shameless plug for my entry too! [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/content/webcomic/view?id=73999&page=1&ix=4]

Oh wait...

Agreed. I loved the Bioshock strip.

At least the winner was still really good.
