For years, it was a tradition at HBO that we would host a pumpkin-carving contest, and you guys would make us feel warm and fuzzy all over with the amazing creations you sent us. Last year, we skipped this tradition, because things were simply too busy to make it happen. We made a lot of people sad when we did that, however... so the 343 Guilt O' Lantern contest is back. The prize list isn't live yet... but hey, you're not doing this for prizes, right? (Right?) Don't worry - there will be a sizeable prize list, long before the contest actually ends. Don't wait for us, though - get to carving! Entries can be submitted anytime between right now and October 31 - we'll start the voting process soon after that. Make us proud!

Hedgemony has a pair of potential covers for the upcoming (not really) Deadeye comic - he's not sure the first one works, but I can say with certainty that he's wrong. (The second one rocks, too.)
