Archaia Comics Contest Winners!

Congratulations to the winners!

...And the winners are...


First off I want to thank everyone who participated in the contest! I really appreciate everyone who made submissions and gave independent publishers some love. We had an incredible turnout and over 40 submissions from users, so great job guys! While I did personally read through all of the entries (and have chosen some of my favorites,) the contest winners were randomly selected from the group through a lottery and the winners were not chosen based on the submissions themselves (save for whether or not they met the 4-5 sentence minimum requirement). 
I want to thank all the folks at Archaia Comics for making this contest possible! I hope that that their efforts give our winners the opportunity to read some really awesome stories that will get them hooked and wanting more.
Congratulations to the contest winners! If you see your name listed as one of the 25 winners, please be sure to private message me your name and address by Monday, August 31st 2009. If you fail to do so, I will be forced to choose another entry at random. Thank you!

Its great ComicVine is showing some love for the Indie publishers and encouraging users to give them a shot.

I checked out their Mouse Guard title and thought it was cool. I'm actually like what I've seen enough I'm pulling a story I been working on from someone else and re working it to submit there. What title did you order?

No way! I never win stuff. I like to buy indie books and show them my support anyway but its great to see this reaction on the Vine. I mainly wanted to give my opinion and support indie pubs but I'll take free stuff too :D Thanks to everybody at the Vine and Archaia!

congrats all. that looked like a very hard contest, and all of your entries i had alot of hard work put into them.
BTW: every time i look at that Archaia picture, i start to hear what seems to be suggestive whispers
spoken in ancient tongues in my head, and cannot look away from it. they sound like theyre telling me to make a  furshlugginer pastrami sandwich. is that usual?

Posted by jloneblackheart

Wow, I never win anything. Congratulations everyone. Thank you ComicVine and Archaia, I promise everything I get will make it onto the Vine.

Congrats, one and all ^-^

Wow, I'm like everyone else, I never win a thing, thanks to Archaia and Comicvine for putting this on. 
I've been reading a few Archaia books for a bit,  and from what I've seen they don't put a bad book out, Days Missing was absolutely incredible, so I'm interested to see what I get.

Actually, once I'm through checking the books out I'd be more than happy to keep the love going and pass them to someone else, guess I'll make a post about that when I do get through with them. 
Now if you'll excuse me I'm off to get some Mega Millions tickets.

Congratulations all the winners. Will each winner get the same quantity and the same titles? 
Maybe the winners can all post on the forums when they get their packages in the mail and post which comics they got. Then post about which ones make a top 3 list or something.

Posted by TheWhiteHand

I don't know about anybody else but I received my prize pack today.  Inside was Gunderrkrigg Court HC, Days Missing #1, Artesia Besieged #3, The Killer #9, Okko the Cycle of Water #2, and Mouse Guard: Winter 1152 issues #1 and #2.
Very pleased with selection of comics and cant wait to sit down and read them all.  Mouse Guard were only ones I had previously read and I would say is one of my all time favorite comics.
