Seriously. The anivia/brand comic was the opposite of funny. The Fiddles one was GOLD, but otherwise, I shake my head at what you guys think is humor.

Both winners are great. Sure, they are not "It's so fuuny my face is falling off!", but they are clever and have awesome art. You guys just don't get them.

Pulsefire Teemo has great art and awesome setting, but fails in its conclusion. The punchline is misplaced, spoiling itself when the build up isn't concluded yet. And then, there's the meme.

I think the Fiddlesticks one would have been funnier if the Tin Man was Blitz, Dorothy was Annie(and Toto was Tibbers) and Rengar was the Cowardly Lion.

We are working hard to develop new types of contents that enable people to showcase skills beyond art, music or sculpture. I personally have very little artistic talent and 100% understand the pain of players that want to be able to enter more of our contests, but feel excluded due to lack of art skills. That said, the ideas that we are knocking around would still reward time and effort.

Why doesn't RIOT just post all entries? Even if RIOT wants to limit those who can win a prize, at least show all entries - that in itself is rewarding.

I was super sad when my noxus noms entry wasn't posted. And saddened again to see my comic not here.

This contest was judged equally on art quality AND humor. We held an entire judging meeting with many of our artists in-house to go through hundreds of individual submissions and rate them with point values for how funny they were, and how high the art quality was.

The fact is, everyone has a slightly different sense of humor, and not everyone will appreciate art in the same way either. I'm sorry that you found zero of our 32 winning comics humorous, but they had many of us rolling on the floor with laughter. The same goes for how impressed we were with the quality of the art!

Truly, I'm sorry that our incredibly talented fan artists even have to see your negativity about the AMAZING work they've submitted and are being recognized for. They put countless hours of work into these, and it really stood out to us.

We plan to showcase a LOT more of these comics as we got over 3,000 entries into this contest.

Should art have been a consideration at all? There are some funny ones in there for sure. I just figured if art was part or all of the goal, have a poster competition. Just my two cents.

Good job on the submissions though people. I know many of you out there submitted and Riot didn't show them though - they are good too.
