This is the announcement many of you have been waiting for. Last week we teamed up with Top Cow to give you guys a chance to win some cool prize packs. We had three ways to win. One winner was selected based on their art entry, another based on their written entry and a third was chosen randomly from both the art and written entries.
Choosing a winner is never easy. The idea was based on the current REBIRTH of the Top Cow universe, redesign Sara Pezzini with the Witchblade. The written portion was to give her a new direction or occupation since she is no longer a New York City police detective.
Theres were the prize packs:
As stated in the contest post, the first pack is for the art winner, the second for the written winner and third is the random winner.
Now for the winners.

Again, the idea was for something a little new and different. We liked the use of black, it almost gives a stealth feel, except for those big old horns. Witchblade's design has always had a deadly touch to it and this looks more fierce. You don't want to mess with her.
The Written Winner Is
SQReview with this entry:
I think that Sara would really benefit from working with an antique dealer that needs her to travel the world and look at "artifacts" that could be put up for sale. This would open the door to meeting lots of new characters, run into more of the mystical artifacts that reside in the Top Cow universe, and would get her feet wet in an occupation she has to learn from scratch. It'd be an obvious choice for her to be a private detective, but it might be more fun to throw her in the deep end with a whole new career.
Sara does need a job that allows her to go from place to place. That's the nice thing about no longer being a police detective, she doesn't have to explain any disappearances. She is seeking mystical items now (as a private investigator if you're reading the current issues). But if you have read ARITIFACTS, you know she won't be working for the Curator anytime soon.
The Random Winner Is
Congrats to all the winners. Thanks to all that entered and to Top Cow for sending the prize packs. Our apologies once again to those outside the United States that weren't allowed to enter.
