First , a huge thanks to Girls Gone Geek for co-hosting this month's contest with us! Vanessa and Erika have been fantastic to work with, and really helped diversify the running of this contest.
If you're looking for a great site with great opinions and analysis of comics, Girls Gone Geek is a great place to go. You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter.
A big thank you also goes out to Robert Schilling, the winner of last month's Gorilla Grodd contest. It's always a pleasure to see his art, but it's also a joy to have him on our judge's panel.
This month's contest was immensely successful -- with 49 posted submissions, it was easily the biggest contest we've hosted in terms of turnout. So thank you to everyone who submitted to the contest. From the get-go, you cracked out high-quality, inventive redesigns that really raised the bar.

It was also the second-biggest month we've ever had in terms of site traffic. A couple of huge thank yous go out to DC Women Kicking @$%, who mentioned us on their site, and our friends over at Project: Rooftop, who linked to us while highlighting Blair J. Campbell's fantastic version of Starfire.
Coupled with those of you who linked to us through your sites, Facebook, deviantArt, Twitter, Tumblr, and every other way imaginable, loads of people have taken part in this month's contest, so I can't thank you all enough. From Day 1, Superhero of the Month has been about exposing people to your art, and this month really upped the ante.
Thank you all for your continued support of our site, and for your contributions. I'm looking forward to another fantastic contest as we take on the Birds of Prey. I hope you'll consider joining us again!
