Page 7 Contest Winner

June 2, 2011

Comic Idol Online wanted to let everyone now about the winner of the Seventh page Contest for the webcomic Riot Shell as well as proudly announcing Marc Silvestri as the Judge to the new Page 8 Contest!

As already announced earlier comic book heroes and Comic Idol supporters Stjepan Sejic (Witchblade, Angelus), Filip Sablik (Top Cow publisher) and Martin Montiel (Tales from Wonderland: Queen of Hearts vs. Mad Hatter) were the honored Judge and Jury of this Page 7 Contest. The consistently high-end performances of the artists entering into every contest are truly best served in having such high-level Judges!

Nicita is proud to announce the winner of the Page 7 Comic Idol Online Contest, namely Alex Reburiano Jr AKA: a.reburiano!!
The Jury’s verdict per page will be put online per entry as soon as possible as well.

According to Nicita “It was agonizing again this time around!!!! It has become harder and harder to really choose the winner of each contest, also because every Judge is looking at the entries more closely but still… from another and very personal point of view. Where one looks at the flow of the story, the other will look more into details or the use of borders or how much action per page or panel!”

Nicita Design and Comic Idol Online hereby congratulate the winner Alex Reburiano Jr!!! The Page 7 Contest has again been an success and a lot of Industry Professionals are looking at every page still, so we urge all the fans of great artwork, great artist, Riot Shell and Comic Idol Online to enter and log in with your Facebook-account or your own account at Comic Idol Online and see new entries for Page 8 Contest coming in soon!

The scheduled new Judge for the Page 8 contest is Comicbook Legend Marc Silvestri so get your crayons in order and be sure to have a great time!
Be sure to check back with the entries at

Comic Idol Online wants to thank Stjepan Sejic, Filip Sablik and Martin Montiel for their time and their effort in picking this Page Contest winner .

Riot Shell and Comic Idol Online are thrilled to announce to the world that Top Cow superstar Marc Silvestri will judge the Page 8 Contest next month.

According to Nicita he “just freaked out when I got this in! I know Marc Silvestri is very busy and for him to take time off his super star schedule for this competition… speechless!!”

That indeed is well said and it truly shows that the Comic Book Industry really thinks the initiative called Comic Idol Online is worth the support!

So get your pencils sharp and ready and send your Riot Shell Page 7 contest entries over to us, since the deadline for that contest is April 30th and that page will be judged by the Top Cow herders Filip Sablik, artist Stjepan Sejic (Witchblade, Angelus) and Martin Mˆntiel (The Darkness). Doing Page 7 even makes you earn 10 extra Riot Shell points which will be added on to your page 8 entry which could be just enough for you to put your art in the lead of the page 8 contest.

And when you finished with those Page 7 pencils you hit overdrive and come back with Page 8 artwork and have Marc Silvestri himself look into it!
Page 8 Script will be online from the 1st of May.

Comic Idol Starts Now! Win Marc Slvestri X-MEN Cover

May 7, 2010

Riot Shell is the (online) comic, which has the unique ability to have the most fan-support in the business, simply because fans themselves create, support, pencil and publish the comic. Nicita Design’s Adrian Nicita created a platform ( for aspiring comic book artists to strud their stuff and via this platform chapter after chapter will become available to the fans. Comic Idol Online lets the fans decide which page, creator and storyline will be the future of Riot Shell.

After many months of hard work, the launch of the Comic Idol website is announced; a place where fans can share their art and chat with people of similar interests.

Per page and chapter a contest will open up, in which artists can upload their artwork and where fans can vote and choose! Every action on the site earns credits/points which will determine the ongoing adventures of Riot Shell.

This is what mastermind Adrian Nicita has to say about the next contest which will open on the 7th of May and closes on 1st of June:

“This is where the hard part starts! You -the fans- need to continue the story of Riot Shell after her amazing kick-off by artist Martin Möntiel (to be read online at where we saw her standing in the debris!

In the enclosed image is a list of the characters you can use to get the ball rolling!

Once the contest opens on the 7th you are free to upload your art as soon as it done and people can start voting.
So the quicker you get your art up the more votes you can get! You can also come back and vote hourly so if there are two artwork pieces you want to vote for… no prob and share the love =).

All the characters mentioned are villains. (to see a image of the villains go to this link – )

The Stalkers are being controlled from a unknown villain which we will reveal soon so if you want to draw them in please use a black silhouette.

All other characters with weapons on their arms do not have the same abiitly as Riot Shell. They only have the one weapon you will draw and it does not change. The big baddie The Octopus has two guns on his arms which can transform from gun to arm.
