Having fought and lost hasn't killed my will to fight. It's only made me want to fight again, and fight harder. ^_^

I would also like to pipe up that I'm another that thought Manly Guys should have won as well. If you need help setting up a website for it drop me a line, my real job is web development and with some cheap hosting and a easy comic pres install you can get a webcomic up and doing in no time. I'd love to see the comic continued.

Out of Ten certainly isn't my favorite, but congrats to the winner anyway. I'm looking forward to seeing some more of your work.

Also a shout out to all those who didn't make it. There was some awesome stuff in there! Keep up the good work, and don't let this one get you down!

Coelasquid:
I'm really flattered by all the love Manly Guys is getting, too! I think I might try to keep it going as a once-a-week kinda thing. Either on my DA or a page of it's own if I can find someone to teach me how to internet... I never even figured out Geocities in my youth :P

I realize most people might not be too eager to accept help from a stranger off the internet, but I'd hereby like to offer my help with whatever webdevelopment-related things you need help with. Anything at all, don't hesitate to ask. Your entry was easily the most awesome thing on the list and if I can do anything to increase the chance we'll see more of it, I will.

You know even though i didn't win I am ecstatic just being in the honorable mentions!
This song keeps playing in my head, i hope the other Honorable Mentions are also feeling such joy! : http://www.youtube.com/watch#!v=iUBwjyhRweQ&feature=related

Much deserved, man, yours was one of my top favourites.

Gotta say, though, this is what's goin' on in my head http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Qae_TUTeGo

It kind of became my theme song after this one time I stayed up for six days straight animating barbarians with that and Push it to the Limit playing on loop.

Yours is indeed a great entry, and it's one that I'm proud to share the category of Honorable Mention in this contest with. I look very much forward to seeing manly stuff being done by Manly Guys.

As for Robot Viking Ninja Pirates, Zolf and I are definitely proceeding onward with it in one form or another.

oooooo, thats a good un! Now it's going through my head as well =)
Seriously, is it just me or does it feel like you've taken an adrenaline shot to the eyeball?

awwwwwww mah comic: THICK did not make it into the gallery

MaTT2011:
You know even though i didn't win I am ecstatic just being in the honorable mentions!

I'm feeling exactly the same :)

Thanks a lot emiliogomez, folmerkelly and the others who liked "The Last Shot", I enjoyed a lot making it. It was a really great experience to participate in this contest with so great competition.

Here's another one I made but wasn't one of my favourite four so...

Gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous.

I still think it's ridiculous you didn't win this thing dude.

More like a kick to the balls, but that's just me being overly melodramatic ;)

The winning comic is really great, I'm amazed at the quality that came out of this contest. Also, congratulations to the escapist for getting quality stuff out of this contest.

I'm also grateful for having my comic "Fables from the Rift" in the list of honorable mentions. not really sure why, but thanks. did anyone like it at all? i figured it got the mention as a curiosity at best.

folmerkelly:

Hi, my name is the "QUOTE" button. You may have noticed me next to the "REPLY" button, and are wondering "What in the heck does this guy do?" Well, fear not, for I will explain my function to you!

When you are reading a comment you feel you have an appropriate response to, simply click me, and the comment will show up in the reply box, ready for you to reply to! Try it out!

Ahaha, I'm really not feelin' much of anything noteworthy. Like I said in the other thread, I just see this as a drop in the bucket of jobs I've applied for. I wrote to about thirty studios when I was looking for work over the summer and of that I got one formal rejection and one place hired me, the rest I may as well have just been throwing resumes into a hole. But I'm a firm believer in the universe just clicking into place eventually, because the job I did get was a show for Comedy Central full of everything that I love to draw.

Just gotta remember not to take things too personally and not get too hung up on defeats, because the victories that follow up eventually are fukken awesome.

I liked it quite a bit. I've got a thing for the odd fable or so. And the child like cutouts do wonders for it.

Though, for reasons I'm sure you're aware of too, I gotta wonder why it'd be on a gamer site.

Neat! I made "honorable mention!" I have no idea what my plans are for my comic, but it was a pleasure working on it!

Congratulations to the winners! Looking through the other entries has been fun. I hope to see more of them in the future...

oh man I almost forgot to desperately self-promote
http://www.escapistmagazine.com/content/webcomic/view?id=74391&ix=13

Oh for fuck sake. Fables from the Rift's made me read everything in rhymes >_>

That's a compliment, btw.

Hey, Longyear, if it's any consolation I'm a big fan of your comicking prowess.

"Something like this probably needs a lot more pages to establish itself and make its case to potential readers."
You heard Shamus! He wants more! And so do I!

Well, I see that the winner is great, and it is also regretable that the Many Men Doing Many Things will also not be featured, as that is another that I would actually continue to read.... However, most of my favorite webcomicsanimations seem to die somewhere down the line, or lose vast amounts of steam... (Fanboys, VGcats, PerfectKirby, The Awsome Series by egoraptor)....

Anyways, heres the obligitory link to my comic, which, as usual, I would also dismiss as crap because it has been more than 24 hours since I have drawn it.

Pencil, Pen, Paper, Scanner, MSpaint.... Thought of the stuff, and drawn at 2am, finding out about the contest 8 days before it closed. Critique is welcome, feel free to PM me on it if you dont wish to take up forum space.

And a comic idea that I came up with AFTER the contest- http://s253.photobucket.com/albums/hh65/Axzarious/?action=view¤t=comic001.jpg&newest=1

And one of Captian Falcon's Falcon Punch, Meeting Chuck Norris' Roundhouse Kick with a caption saying "Moments later, the universe was created" that I have yet to draw.

Geez, my art seems to take a massive dip when I am confined to a panel... Heh.

Art when I get more space to do it-

Well, thats it. Critique is appreciated. Heck, I dont even know if its funny, or well drawn. Seems diffucult for me to get critique for some reason.

Cool, my piece of crap made the Honourable Mentions!:D

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/content/webcomic/view?id=74513&ix=20

Congratulations to the winner, I'm looking forward to following your comic in the coming weeks.

Oh, and good luck to the rest of the Honourable Mentions in your future endeavors. It'll be nice to see some of those strips continue in some form somewhere (especially, The Last Shot... seriously, buddy, keep that one going!:D).

Adios, amigos! I'm sure I'll bump into some of you elsewhere in the Escapist Forums!

Ummm... I'm confused. Shamus Young gave me a very positive response, for which I am grateful, but he said that my comic (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/content/webcomic/view?id=74335&ix=15) was disqualified because it already existed. Which it doesn't. Anyone?

Yea, strange... hopefully the same thing didn't happen to me O_O mine didn't get commented on.

We'll look into it for you.

Thanks, dude!

Congratulations to the winner, first off! Out of Tens was very funny... however, Manly Guys doing Manly Things was my personal favorite. I really hope that he continues making them, I'd read'm.

Also, if anyone enjoyed my comic http://www.escapistmagazine.com/content/webcomic/view?id=73856&ix=3 then you can check out all the ones I've done here: http://shotdownagain.com/npi/

Awww,I didn't get any tips/comment...writes sad face on the sand with a stick...

Awww,I didn't get any tips/comment...writes sad face on the sand with a stick...

Can't have that - It's got great four-colour art, but the story doesn't always come across. For example, comic 1 doesn't really say what's happening. I can imagine that all the A's are violent people, but does that mean the girl's pressing X are all into lesbianism???
There needs to be a bit of a pause between the lead-up and the punchline, as comic 3 draws your attention to the lift before the idea of the level up joke gets in.

I'd also like to say that Caliostro's 404, happyelf's Top Down Tale, johnsojn's Hi Rez Heroes are well worth a look.

Wow, man. The comic I didn't do had the same concept as the winner (a female gaming reporter). I probably wouldn't be as good, though.

350 nominations is a lot, eh? Congratulations, Escapist.

Page 16 is where my comic dwells. Shame, I thought it was good but the judges know best :D

March is full of mayhem.
Mayhem? THIS IS MARCH!
