I'll confess to some trepidation offering up last week's subject - Breast Cancer Awareness - but you folks impressed me. We had a ton of great submissions treating the subject with humor, candor, and even sentiment.

For starters, Sodrohu's "Titris" is absolutely not out of line. Given how many cute "Save the Tatas" messages you'll see this month, it's a similar blend of raciness and chuckles. jojo1288, however, went straight for the jugular; given it's Miranda and, well, Shepard's promoting early detection, I'll allow it.

dmcshinobi had the first, and best, of many Kirby-themed entries; VampireLordAlucard turned in cover art that brings a smile. Jimmy_Jazz pinkwashed a notorious scene from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and Apperd gets a nod for commiting John Marston to the cause.

My favorites? AgentRayBans turned in a very simple design but, ladies, a fixit guy like Engineer is someone you want on your side in this fight. bubonicyeti was the most hilarious offering of all 560 submissions. Kobun's was very bittersweet, especially for anyone who loves games and has a loved one who's faced this diagnosis.

The gold medal, however, goes to TheLawn, who perfectly captures a spirit I could barely articulate for this contest but silently hoped everyone would understand. Take a bow, all who participated. Thank you.

We'll see you guys in here tomorrow.

Editor's Note: On further review, the 20th submission of this gallery was considered inappropriate in tone, especially in light of the laudatory remarks above. This was my error of editorial judgment and presentation and absolutely not the fault of the artist. It has been removed.
