I've only read the winners and a few others, but...

Sweet Zombie Jesus, that Zapp/Kif one about the Fox planet was hysterical!  Granted, maybe one or two bits seemed slightly recycled from the show (like the revelation that Mars was blown up on accident...too similar to "the hubble telescope" line), but mostly it was absolutely hilarious.  Especcially liked the bit with the coffee maker, and Zapp's "yet somehow I feel a connection to them" line.  Plus the artwork is great.

Chay's "steal a framegrab" one was very clever.

And the one with the parrot, i think it was #3 was hysterical.

EDIT: i reread the parrot comic (#3) and i noticed something i hadn't the first time i read it. Fry's eating ice cream and in each panal the words on the container changes, The words are so small i completely overlooked them but they say:

"Dippin Dots: the ice cream of today"

"Ice Cream: the Ice cream of the past"

"Ice Cream Soup: the Dippin Dots of the future"

I laughed so hard. The words on the ice cream container were just as entertaining as the comic itself!   laff

I like the one about Fry and Bender's comic strip getting pre-empted by a football comic strip.  It's funny 'cause it's true.

The winning comic is absolutely amazing; it kept me gripped the whole way through, and was extremely funny and well written. Itís amazing to think they managed to pull that off so well, without even using any members of Planet Express. It was definitely a well-deserved win. It has some interesting panel compositions too, and I particularly loved the effective build up, only to find they were accidentally blowing up Mars. Cloolsome artwork too  cool

Having said that, nearly all of the entries were really awesome too. Of the ones which didnít make it into the top four, Iíd say I liked number #9 my favorite. It just had something special, to me. I really liked Margaritaís too, simple, yet really clever and unique. The other two entries which made it into second place aside from mine were both amazing too.

Thanx, that means a lot, Iím really happy that some people like it. I was really surprised to make it into joint second place, but Iím also really happy for the recognition. Although, reading through the comments on CGEF though was quite disheartening to say the least, because it seems quite a few people really didnít like mine or find it funny at all, ah well. I guess it just comes down to taste, and my humor and approach is quite different to most entries in the contest. Everything I do seems to be controversial, but I was just doing it my way. Iím just so happy that some people like it, that makes it all worth it for me  smile

Thanx all!  big grin And yeah, publishing some of the comics would rule  cool

And Bofr@, I read your comic and enjoyed it. You certainly put a lot of work into it, and at 14 pages I think it's the longest entry in the Comic Contest. It did remind me a little of Issue #9 of the Futurama Comic's where Fry and the Professor swapped bodies, but I liked your spin on things. The Fish character was nice, as was the Nervotransformator gun. Some nice humourous touches, I especially liked it when Zoidberg said Fry had been in the toilet for hours. It may not be artistically the best, but it got the point and story across, and was fun to read, cloolsome stuff  cool

I didn't get the black and white comic, some auxiliary characters fire a rocket and destroy the dome, of-coarse he would be mad. Am I missing something?

Artistically Otis' is my fave all the way. Its so incredibly well drawn, I love it  smile

Humour wise, I'd have to say number 28, Brian Emling. Apart from Otis', this is the comic that made me kinda laugh out loud too.

But there are some really great enteries, its so hard to pick just one fave. But Otis' and Brian's are my top 2  smile

You're not really missing anything, unless it's your sense of humor... I'll elaborate. Beginning with the panel #1, first of all we don't see the Professor in his Angrydome. We just see The Robot Devil on the slay, who is at the helm, Roberto is there with the Robot Devil, because I thought it'd be fun seeing them together, and Robot Santa is there armed with his TOW Missile (from 'Xmas Story'). They are all up to mischief on an Unseasonal; out of the blue rampage.

Robot Santa fires a TOW Missile through the following two panels, and we see it "CRACK!" through the air, but we don't know where it'll end up at this point. This is meant to be building up the suspense, and show a sense of speed and power. I have also used varied pacing elements to achive this, such as making the immediate frame after the missile is fired thin, to suggest the missile is passing quickly through it. On panel #4 I have raised the skyline, and made the buildings smaller and more distant, to suggest that the missile has now traveled a long way, and has traveled diagonally towards us, and the Professor. And after panel #4, I have deliberately given a very small gap leading up the panel #5, to make them flow together sequentially. This is all to add the initial impact, and add drama, to make the humor in conclusion more effective. In panel #4 the Professor then comes into view in his Angrydome. Personally, I absolutely loved the Angrydome joke in the series, and think it was the best thing in 'Kif Gets Knocked Up A Notch'. I wished we could have seen more of it. So I extended upon that idea, taking it further with other elements. To me, just the sight of seeing him waving his arms in the Angrydome is hilarious. By the time people see panel #4; with the missile and the Angrydome together, they put two and two together and can predict what will happen next.

In panel #5, we have a huge "CRASH!"; (a play on the similar noise "CRACK!", which the missile made previously) as the missile hits the Angrydome. Then in the final panel, we see Professor Farnsworthís reaction to this, and he's even more angry than he was (and to be in the Angrydome he must have already been pretty angry).

What makes it funny, to me anyway, is the fact that the very place the Professor goes to get away from everything and let off his anger, has now been destroyed. He now has nowhere to go, and yet he's even more angry now than he's ever been before! The other thing that makes it funny, is the fact it's totally unexpected to him. He had his back to the missile and didn't see it coming, unlike us reading the comic. It was an Unseasonal surprise, and something which wouldn't normally happen. This was my idea, and what I thought made it funny anyway...

You should make a comic explaining the joke in the comic you just explained.

Someone said it on CGEF.com but I think all the people who disliked Otis' comic have obviously not seen "Kif Gets Knocked Up A Notch". I have, and therefore I loved it.  wink

I think the style of 28's is adorable...anyone who can do Futurama outta Groening style deserves winning.
Oh, and the joke in #33
Fry:What, is eating lobster cannibalism to you, Zoidberg?
Z: No, I'm just poor.

The winning one was fantastic, and I also particularly liked the one with the slides. The descriptions the professor was making as the slides came up behind him were great, as was the slides of him wearing sashes saying Adenine and Guanine!
