Today marks the 365th OVC cartoon and to commemorate this occasion, I am announcing the first Our Valued Customers contest! So here’s the deal: Email me your submission of the strangest thing you have heard in your local comic shop, video game store, Magic tournament (etc.) along with a loose description of what the speaker looked like and I will draw the top 5 submissions and run them next week on the site crediting YOU as the writer! Submission deadline is Midnight on Saturday so get crackin! Send submissions to email@example.com Good Luck!
