Meet the winners of our first annual Comics issue contest

Draw, pardner! The second annual Denver Comic Con will fill this city with thousands of comic lovers over the coming weekend. But there's a lot to love (and sometimes loathe) in Denver all year 'round. For our first annual Comics issue, we asked artists to create a cartoon about life in the Mile High City. You'll find the best submissions on the next four pages, and even more on our arts blog, Show and Tell.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
