    You know, if you three spent less time thinking about sex and more time concentrating on comic books, we would have much less of these embarrassing moments.

    Ahh, the wise (?) words of Dr. Sheldon Cooper, ones which, hopefully, didn't inspire BK613 to challenge us to tear a page (literally!) from the world of comic books - because, frankly, many of us probably prefer the distraction :bolian:.

    OTOH, I'm also sure many of us cringe at the idea of tearing a page out of a comic book, too. I'm assured by our entrants that no comics were harmed in the creation of this month's field ... so guilt-free sex, it is! :D

    Please cast your vote - maybe bend over a corner (shudder!) - for the one that makes you Marvel at its brilliance, the one that gives you a Direct Connection to your artistic soul. Our winning artist will draw upon his experience to challenge the forum for February. (Voting ends @midnight, Feb. 04, 2012)

    Albertese--not just for the art--I can actually see some passion in there.

    Yeah, Albertese wins for originality, creativity and sheer talent. I'd gladly read a whole comic done in that style, and that story sounds extremely exciting.

    ^What he said. Definitely Albertese.

    Although I'm wondering what exactly Kail ate before coming up with that comic.... :wtf::lol:

    "Maybe an undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment of an underdone potato ..."

    Definitely an interesting story fragment in Albertese's entry, although I voted for B.J. - such an apt use of the SW meme :D. Otherwise, Klaus might've had me with Ens. Leffler - ahh, that was where I fell madly, hopelessly, perpetually in love with Ashley Judd ... :drool:

    Congratulations, Albertese! Looks like you really blew peoples' minds this time, didn't you? :D Hope you've had your thinking cap on ...

    Thanks to everyone who entered, and everyone who voted - great start to 2012! Let's make it the best year ever - it may be our last, right? :D

    Hey guys, thanks for all the votes! Looks like democracy does work after all!

    This was a really fun project this month. I had a lot of fun making this. All the positive feedback makes me want to do more with this story line and maybe work on more pages to fill things out! But with a full time job and family responsibilities I doubt I ever really will, but I sure want to!

    When it looked like I might actually have a stab at winning this thing I started thinking of a new challenge for February 2012, and I hope I've thought of a good one. Click here to find out if I did!
