The challenge was

Create a design in classic comic book style.

Holy Onomatopoeia, Batman!

When did big screen superheroes become sexier than speech bubbles?

We're throwing it back to a time when BAM! KAPOW! and KABOOM! gave comic stories their speaker system before film adaptation ever could. Channel your inner-Lichtenstein, get out your brightest primary colors, and give some long overdue love to classic comic book art.

NOTE: Your design can be inspired by any aspect of classic comic style, but don't use art or characters from real comic books.

The winner received

  • $1,000 cash

  • $500 Threadless gift code

  • Plus, anyone who is printed (including the grand prize winner) will receive up to $7 on each t-shirt of their design sold on Threadless.com! Read more...
