So, the entries are in, and the links are up (all except for 24's, which I will be adding when I get home this evening). Have a look at all of this year's entries and place your vote!

The mermilf link seems to be wrong

RE: Let The Voting Begin!!!

I'm not sure what was wrong with it, but it seems to be working now (for me, at any rate). Have another look, and let me know.

Teague Tysseling's picture

The MerMILF link used to have the same problem that the link to my personal site on the Fright Night page still has.

.....

It'd be wrong of me to vote for me.... but no-one else can either?

Teague Tysseling's picture

Why not? I voted for myself, being the selfish egomaniac that I am.

Surlyben's picture

The reason why not is that he's not listed in the poll. Which kinda skews things against him... (He was the last one in, but I know he got his entry done before midnight PST, because I was looking at it last night around 11...)

Yeah, I don't understand that. I tried to add him three times and it wouldn't take. He seems to be up now, but I obviously have some other things to take care of (Teague's URL for instance). Sorry for the bugs guys.

Teague's URL is working now. Twenty-Four is back on the list. Now I have to make sure you can keep voting until Saturday night, and everything will be peachy.

Matt Shepherd says he'll be ready to run this ship again next year, and I for one will be glad ;-)

I demand 1 month free advertising at Comixpedia as compensation!!!!

or at least 1 vote before Saturday :D

So, is this secret ballot or can we say who we voted for? I'd like to hear what people thought of everyones submissions anyway.. especially mine since I'm new at this

It should be a one vote per member ballot - whether it's secret or not is up to individuals!

Twenty-four's comic I cannot see! Comixpedia's broken!

I refuse to vote until I read it!

AGH!!! a conspiracy!!!!

no wonder I don't have any votes :(

Argh! I swear I only copied and pasted it from your email, but the site's been doing something weird and evil to my html. Seriously!

If I didn't know better I would say that this contest was cursed!

I'll see what I can do, but in the meantime, I think 24 is right on - Let's hear what you think of our contestants.

And by the way, there's only one vote for each registered user... or else I would have voted for everyone :-)

Everything's fixed on the FN page. I swears..!

I run this place! Tip the piano player on the way out.

dunk's picture

Yay! And I promise not to touch the code again until this puppy is in the box!

So get your vote on people! Exercise your ight to decide! Thre is no such thing as abstension ;-)

RiESC's picture

it took me quite a while to decide which was my favorite. it was a difficult descision on my part, because i felt i had to consider how great a priority artistic merit needed to play in my deliberations. there were a number of wonderful art styles and layout methods to take into account.

however, in the end, i voted for the one that made me laugh.

...

and now i wait in dread to see if my entry garners no votes by Halloween.
*sigh*

I hear ya.... I'll grab a few bottles of vodka and we can get blitzed if it ends up that way

I just got this entry in, from Jimmy Kustes of www.likeanepisodeof.com.

It doesn't use Jon's starter panel, but it is pretty Halloween-y.

Well, I'm sorry there wasn't more reaction that we've had folks. Maybe people had a hard time finsing the voting page. If that's the case then you all have my apologies.

I think the entries were awesome this year, and I would have liked to vote for each and every one of you, but it looks like Surly Ben will be getting some banner time on CO for November (the banner should be 720x90 Ben).

As for who will be receiving the orginal art from Jon, I expect he will make his choice known at the stroke of midnight, and I will pass it along to the rest of you tomorrow ;-)

... next year I'm including boobs in my entry :lol:

RiESC's picture

what i wouldn't mind seeing next year (assuming there's enough participants - something that seems to be more of a problem every year) is a return to the "good old days" of the Fright Night institution - group projects! heck, that was the reason i originally signed on; the chance to work with other cartoonists around the globe on a fun Halloween comic.

eh, but maybe that's just wishful thinking.
i have a feeling if that's going to happen, i'd probably have to be the one to organize it, as i'm aware it's a thankless job that no-one else would want! :)

Cool. I think I've ginned up an ad... Who do I send it to ?

I think you're right Rudi. A group project would probably float better than a contest, and the groups can be divided according to the number of participants.

Matt will be back next year, and with your help, I'm sure we can bring things back to the hey day :-)

I see that Bill has called this one for you - send me a URL to the banner or just post it to this thread and I'll grab it. Also make sure I know the URL to point it to.

soo.....

has Jon made his descision yet?

And here's the word from the man himself!

Hey Bill,

I've given it a LOT of thought and looking over, and I think ultimately
I'm going to have to give it to Teague Tysseling's "MerMILF" story.

There were a LOT of tuff choices in that mix, and I spent some time
wavering between Teague's and a couple others, particularly the folks
who produced freaking mini-epics for the contest. In the end, I think
Teague had both the art and the story working best of all.

For the record, Kris Straub, Dave Rigley, Ben Bittner and Rudi Gunther
all came really close to stealing it from Teague.

So yeah, there we go! A winnah!

Thanks for including me in FN this year, I had a blast checking these out!

Ciao
-Jon

So, there you have it folks. If Teague wants to send me his contact info (home address and such) I will forward those on to Jon, and get your prize squared away. You also have a month of CP banner time if you care to send me something 720x90.

Congrats to Teague, and big-big thanks to all this year's participants. I invite you all to join in on our weekly webcomic jams, and hope to see you back out for the Blind Date Event next February.

Congrats Teague! You deserve it muchly :D

Thanks Twentyfour.

Dunk, I PMed the info to ya.

T want to say thank you..before a bright and shiny object distracts me again...

I simply enjoyed doing the comic for this contest ...I really don't care about winning anything or not...I had one heck of a comic creator block for the past month and this project helped to break it.

Now moving on to other projects:D
Maybe, just maybe, Ill get that self-published thing done by the APE in April...
