Thanks for the update, I missed that.
His MLP shirt is quite a good design, and the bonus story for voting is very good.
For those of you who only gave this a cursory look, there are some gems!
1) The shirt is great
2) the comic is howl-out-loud funny
3) The comments are amazing! I must quote a few:
Q: Isn’t this against the contest rules?
A: No, actually! Asking for votes is perfectly within the contest guidelines, and even encouraged (I asked).
I’ve never been a fan of winners being decided by popular vote, since it always tends to favor the person with the largest following – a position I’ve never been in until now. I’m thinking if we can utterly steamroll this contest and its followup, we might inspire WLF to change their rules regarding this. Or if not, I’ll get a buckton of money and become everything I ever hated. I’m okay with either outcome really.
Q: Isn’t this against the spirit of the contest?
A: This is a contest about Villains! I am the only one who is abiding by the spirit.
But seriously, I’m trying to be thematic about this. I didn’t enter the Protagonists portion of the contest, and for my Villains entry I intentionally chose a villain who has a large, organized army. If I make it to the Protagonists-Vs-Villains portion of the contest, I’ll do some villainous monologues about how the heroes don’t stand a chance against my unfathomable numbers.
That is like my childhood dream.
