So first of all thank you to everyone who voted. We were receiving them in the hundreds and it was amazing to gauge the response and support from all of you guys reading this. Also a massive shout-out to the guys iver at Irish Comic News for helping us out with the competition. So without further ado, we here at Lightning Strike are proud to announce that the winner of our poll and story arc featuring on the cover of our first issue of ‘Lightning Strike Presents…’ is:
Monkey of Oz! Written by Liam Browne with illustration by the very talented Daryl Cox.
Now that we;ve decided which of our heroes will be gracing the cover, the last thing left to choose will be which of our amazing group of artists will get the privilege to draw to him.
