Caption Contest 68 – The game is afoot!

Starting this week I am moving contests to Mondays*, so heads-up on that. And to "kick" off the change, your challenge this week is to come up with the funniest replacement dialog for this blank comic book panel:


Yeah, good luck with that! The rules are simple:

  • Entries must be made as a comment (or comments) to this post;
  • Keep it relatively clean (appropriate for late-night broadcast TV at worst);
  • No more than three entries per person, so use your best stuff!

I'll announce a winner next Monday, who will receive their choice of either any item of their choice, or a portrait of themselves, either of which will be included in the final HeroMachine 3 version.

Good luck everyone!

*The current character contest will be judged tomorrow as per the old system, with the next coming next Monday instead of next Tuesday, then we'll be completely on the new schedule.

    1) Look Maxx, as long as we’re stuck here in this stomach, we got to eat whatever we can to stay alive.

  3. Runt 82 says:

    2) …and this little piggy had its freakin’ head bitten off.

    Oh yeah? I don’t see SPAWN getting grossed out when I do this.

  14. Niall Mor says:

    This is not a caption, but a comment. I’m not even sure what’s going on in that panel. I’m not even sure I want to know. 🙂

  15. Jeff Hebert says:

    Jeff, thanks for pulling up the only Image comic I read. It’s the only one where the weird bulging muscles made sense.

  36. Demented The Clown says:

    @Jeff When We See The Masthead Results? Or Are We Gunna Vote?

  37. Jeff Hebert says:

    Good question, DTC. Usually I’d pick one and post the result whenever I got to it in the afternoon. But I might do a voting thing instead, we’ll see.

    Regardless, the post’ll probably go up early this afternoon (sooner if I can swing it). It takes a bit to download all the images while renaming them with the entrant’s screen name, picking one, then writing up the post.
