Where did we go wrong? We thought we'd have a nice little comics contest and reward some hard-working writer/artists with a little cash and some exposure here in print and on our Web site. However, the enpaneled comic-reading judges (whoever happened to be around the office that afternoon) have spoken and we end up with Taste Like Chicken. That's the title of the Big Winner in the first (and quite possibly the last) City Paper Comics Contest.
Taste Like Chicken, which scored practically twice the votes of its nearest competitor, Maximum Man, will be available weekly at www.citypaper.com for an entire year. PartiallyClips and Monkey Tails tied for Third.
Taste Like Chicken? Sigh. We invite you to turn the page and examine a broad sampling of the qualifying entries in this year's City Paper Comics Contest. Who knows? Maybe you'll enjoy Taste Like Chicken as thoroughly as some of the judges did. Good Lord. Taste Like Chicken. Honestly, we counted the votes over and over and it still comes up Taste Like Chicken. We're sorry.
