Iron Gelatomettista - Steel Cage Match!

Things are heating up at the studio, so to let off a little steam and get ready for the insanity of Comic-Con next week, we've got our first Steel Cage Match here at the 'metti!

Four men will enter and only one will come out victorious!

JJ "The Fresh One" KIRBY
MICHAEL "Boom-Boom" LOPEZ
OLIVER "Fierce" NOME and
FRANCIS "Undefeated" MANAPUL

Francis was the first one to enter the 'metti challenge way back in January '05 and has gone on to win his second battle to remain undefeated. Can he do it again?

Will Iron Gelatomettista rookie-winners, Oliver and Michael make a repeat?

Or will JJ finally win after losing one,two,three,four times?

Post ONE character you'd like to see them all draw and they'll enter the ring at 5:00pm today to see who comes out on top!

Wow, 82 comments!

Unfortunately, I had to finish some work before posting everything, but thanks for keeping the spot warm while you guys waited.

We all got a big kick out of Francis' piece and you can be sure everyone's gone out to the art store to buy some colored paper for the next challenge. ; )

Anyway, voting's open all weekend, but keep an eye out for some new Comic-Con posts as we get ready for the show!
