I was overjoyed to see how much he got into the whole concept. I delivered a silly little script to him and he turned it into an eye-popping little comic.

Go and show Gunnar some love! How cool is his Hextech Karma? His steampunky Hextech Teemo? And his (borderline NSFW) Sealed Morgana? He also posts lots of WIPs and sketches, so if you're an artist yourself you might find his technique interesting.
I would love that Morgana as a skin, i wouldnt really say its borderline NSFW though, at least, not anymore then her normal skins haha.

Keep doing it! I think the comic is great, and so are all the skins showing multiple champs (like Pool Party Ziggs, as well as a few others). Loving the trend.

PS: Would pay legendary price for that Karma skin.

Nevertheless, something I'll talk to the team about. We'll see.
Perhaps you could commission comics from the guy who drew this one? Seems to generally have gotten a positive response from this thread? (the hire him option)

OR

Quick Riot hire more artists!!! We need comics!!!! (hire some one else option)


OR

Comic contests for each new skin? winner gets to debut in the actual skin post? (crowd source it option)

Tis a sad day when it is discovered no future comics are planned!
Riot PLS!!!!!! MOAR COMICS! (do something please to bring us comics option)

Edit: Also first time quoted by riot and i was quoted 2x!!!

Seeing this skin come out really made me happy while on the plane ride to back home from the largest Oktoberfest festival in America over in Cincinnati, Ohio. Truly, it was a three day heaven.
