CapCon 224's robotic passion for donuts (click on second image above to see cartoon) drew a number of "Robocop" references, and the best came from a first-time contest winner. Our second-place finisher was also a newcomer, showing how wide-open the competition can be among a couple hundred submissions in each contest. That should be encouragement to everyone to stick their nose into CapCon 225 and see how cleverly they can describe the illustration.
