We had a couple of regular Stan Lee’s in chat for Matt’s art challenge. You all submitted some great covers to illustrate what Desert Bus: Civil War would look like. In the end however, just as in Civil War, only one side (or in this case chat member) can win the Marvel Comics Lot.


Congratulations to the winner BeachGnome!

We have our runner ups of TacitusVigil, Littler Lady Hosk, and Josh & Kaitlyn S.

Check the rest below the break!
