The results are in, and the Project:Rooftop/Harris Comics "Revamp" contest is now complete. With over one hundred entries recieved, the Project: Rooftop staff and guest judges Trina Robbins, Joe Jusko and Dan Brereton poured over all the entries before deciding on who is the top of the heap in redesigning Vampirella. And the Grand Prize winner is... Ralph Niese!
Receiving a composite score of 93 (out of 100), Niese's design of a race-car driving Vampirella and a night-creature alter ego give this the edge. Veteran comics creator Dan Brereton gave this a 10, saying "So easy to give this a 10. This is my pick for winner." Original Vampirella designer Trina Robbins agreed.
As grand prize winner, Niese will have his illustration featured in a future issue of Vampirella and will also received two comics signed respectively by Joe Jusko and Dan Brereton.
Our other winners are:
Second Prize: Joe Quinones
Third Prize: Jemma Salume
Project: Rooftop and Harris Comics would like to thank everyone for submitting their work for this contest.
