Personally, while I'm half-tempted to enter, the whole copyright issue just doesn't sit right with me - even if I just make “throw-away” characters, I'll usually make ones that I enjoy too much to let go. Maybe I'm just a sentimental fool, though.

The results are in! How many DD users made it aside from me?

I don't recognize names, but screen-names may help. :P

I mean what I wrote on the CBC webpage that we could have filled the Top 50 up over and over again with the number of great entries we received.

Well, hey, since all the entries were so great, why don't you just publish them all? ;-) I'm sure there are a few of us who didn't make it who'd be happy to entertain contract offers… LOL I can just imagine you sending out ten thousand contracts… hehe

In all seriousness, congrats to those of you who made it, and good luck! The few I've seen on DD who made the cut are definitely worthy, and I look forward to seeing who wins!

Just out of curiosity, how many entrants were there, exactly? Give us the huge number… it'll make those folks who made the cut seem all the more impressive!

Platinum Dan, a request!

I understand fully that in the next phase it is entirely up to the panel in San Diego to decide who goes on, but is there anywhere the 50 entries that won that invitation will be posted so we can see them?

I'm sure there are many of us wanting to see the entire 50 for now, while we wait to see who gets to be in the top 10. Unless I'm mistaken, Platinum Studios already has permission to post them for publicity purposes.

Mole, I think sooner or later here, the actual video pitches will be online at blueroom or comicchallenge website.

Congrats to the people who made the cut. And to those who didn't, don't be discouraged! Next year's contest will come faster than you think. In the meantime, start a regular webcomic and hone your skills to conquer the universe next time!

I wonder if everyone in the top ten gets a prize…?

If Nadya reaches maybe fifty pages by next years challenge, I'm in. :-)

Nadya- a tale about what happens to SOME of us when we die.

Currently: Nadya is awake and asking more relevant questions.

D0m (not to steal Dan's thunder, I'm sure he'd answer here eventually…) everyone in the top 50 gets a copy of Comic Book Creator software and a stipend towards their trip to San Diego. Top ten get a pretty expensive piece of animation software, can't remember what the name of it is. And top 3 get a wacom drawing tablet.

And of course, the winner gets published… that was the only prize I wanted… LOL There's always next year!!

I am staying a little ways out of SD and driving in early the morning of the challenge. Cheaper that way for me.

It was really great meeting all of you this year. Can't wait to do it again next year! Super good luck to all the top 10!

Imagine in 5 years or so, we'll have five past winners, we could all do a special crossover book or some big event!
