Sorry we're running a little late on the judging. The response (and entries) were so good we decided to leave the submissions open through the weekend. Judging will be finished today, and the winners will be posted tomorrow. Thanks for your patience guys.

Hello Everyone!
Note to self: Allow at least 1 (one) week for future nontest judging (sorry guys)
Below are the results of the Civil War Fan Art Nontest! But first, how you get these on your phone:

1. On your phone, in your browser visit:
2. The wallpapers are located off the front page under: Wallpapers; Platinum; Civil War Nontes
3. Simply click the link of wallpaper(s) you like and save to your phone!

So now for the results!


By Marina Guenther
I chose the marina2 one. The one where I'm doing the heart thing with my fingers.


By David Olson
I'm going to go with David_Olsen.jpg. I really like the actiony team-pose, and the colors are great. It just has a really cool comic book feeling overall.

Volte6: (Dylan)

By Robert Toombs
Love the tone, great art, and would look kick ass on a phone!

Howard K. Brodwin (VP Digital Publishing)

By Jenny Lui
I have selected Jenny Lui's because I believe it best ties together the theme of Drunk Duck and the knock-down, drag-out, battle royale that we have come to embrace as the Civil War.

Plus, it looks like Zac has on a pink bra over his black t-shirt.

And his hair is nice.

Carly Mizzou (Creepy Lady):

By Bran LeFaye
This was a tough one as I had *two* favorites, but I decided to go with Bran LeFaye's Stab for the Cause . I like the dark tone and character design. That chic looks just as psycho as I am, BRILLIANT!

Matt Jacobs (Digital Content Guy)

By Tom Rainford
Tom Rainford wins my vote for best Civil War background. The art is clean with vibrant colors and the character collage gives a sense of excitement and action, which to me is what the Civil War is all about. Great work!

I will post comics/usernames tomorrow, as well as a few of the runner ups. A big thanks to everyone who entered, it was a lot of fun for all to check out your DD Civil War wallpapers.

Yay! They're up :D

Wow, I apparently didn't give a reason for my choice. I chose it because I felt it captured my overall stance of “love” in the Civil War, and it's uber adorable.

…actually, we're the fiercesome icon fivesome or something like that. I forget why we're spelled fiercesome. Maybe to stress the point that we are so fierce.

Fighting Icon Force sounds a hell of a lot cooler though. Maybe we should get a name change.

I liked suzi's wallpaper!!

Yes we had loads of fun judging. It was great a few even made my boss laugh himself to tears (it was great!)
We will be having another nontest soon! Maybe something to focus on of the writers here. (in comics isn't it the artists that get all the fun?)
