Vote for Your Favorite Ratchet & Clank Comic!

Chris Morell's Avatar Posted by on Jul 13, 2009 // Senior Social Media Specialist

If you’ve been keeping up, you already know that Friday was the submission deadline for the Comic-Con Ratchet & Clank Create-a-Comic contest. So now it’s time to vote!

We’ve created a Flickr folder with all the great entries here (a super-mega thanks to all who participated!). And now we need your help to determine the winners — it’s time to get in there and vote up your favorites. Just like MLB All-Star voting, there aren’t any specific rules. All you have to do is view one of the photos, and that counts as a vote. If you like it, rack up the page views, get your friends to view it, etc. — we don’t care how it happens.

The comics with the most views from today until noon on July 17, will be picked as winners. Specifically, the top 25 will be receiving an awesome Schwag Bag, and the top comic creators that will be in San Diego area, will be granted access to the July 22 Insomniac Games and SCEA Comic-Con community event, as well as the July 23 exclusive PlayStation event where you’ll go hands-on with some of our biggest upcoming titles.

So get voting because the clock’s ticking! All details and rules are here.

I hope a crack in time supports In-GAME XMB Music!

I know you’ll have great music but having that OPTION is very nice.

tell me which one is worth looking at. The only one I found funny was Nick C.


+ LokeSTL on July 13th, 2009 at 12:19 pm said:

Please add trophies to R&CF:ToD & R&CF:QfB. Thanks! :)

alec m is awesome :)

Sweet. Insomniac are amazing, just take your time on it.


+ StargamerX on July 13th, 2009 at 12:21 pm said:

The first picture is getting an unfair amount of attention! :P

Also, there’s about a 50% chance of winning, so if I lose… lol


+ acertainkid on July 13th, 2009 at 12:27 pm said:

I like the Matt W. one the best


+ ProSoldier14 on July 13th, 2009 at 12:37 pm said:

The Gerardo L. one is cool.


+ StargamerX on July 13th, 2009 at 12:39 pm said:

Hey Chris, if there are 50 entries, and the Top 25 win for both being at Comic-Con and not being there, wouldn’t that make everyone a winner?


+ Gamer_Matt27 on July 13th, 2009 at 12:43 pm said:

I justthoughtof theperfect idea for the comic script. To bad the contest is over, I’m Canadian and I’m under 18…


+ Zonified on July 13th, 2009 at 12:43 pm said:

There are 51 entries so if there are 25 from each catagory, then one person would lose…that would stink! >.<

I agree. lol


+ StargamerX on July 13th, 2009 at 12:47 pm said:

@12, you responded to me twice, lol

And the last photo is all of the others put together, not an actual entry (I would think…)


+ Zonified on July 13th, 2009 at 12:52 pm said:

@13, I did? lol

I didn’t think about the last one. So, maybe everyone did win…maybe.


+ BlooodyCow on July 13th, 2009 at 12:52 pm said:

The voting system is kind lame. Couldn’t you guys just create a poll on the blog or the playstation forums with all the entry? Some entry are over look because they have crappy art. Or what you guys could have done what let up find the ones we want, and post the link in our comment as a vote.

That said, I think the one by Josue A. is my favorite and I vote for that.
here is the link *http://www.flickr.com/photos/playstationblog/3717438372/sizes/l/in/set-72157621392384464/

remove the “*”

Im gonna have a wee look at them now.

Curse Ireland not getting into these competitions….


+ xplosneer on July 13th, 2009 at 1:00 pm said:

I agree with bloodycow, this voting system is somewhat unfair as people may only click on the first one or whatever. Vote system necessary.


+ DARK_JAK_911 on July 13th, 2009 at 1:07 pm said:

Some of these look very good, but the majority of them are extremely hard to read.


+ inFAMOUS_1234 on July 13th, 2009 at 1:07 pm said:

lol – http://www.flickr.com/photos/playstationblog/3717436538/in/set-72157621392384464

Most of them are pretty funny!


+ Xoonaka on July 13th, 2009 at 1:07 pm said:

I’ve read the first 8-10 or so… and so far, it’s a pretty poor showing overall. I’m sad I voted for those comics. Some of them don’t even make sense.


+ TUSTIN1 on July 13th, 2009 at 1:14 pm said:

All you Canucks – be sure to vote for Canadian Clank! I think it’s the last comic…


+ TUSTIN1 on July 13th, 2009 at 1:14 pm said:

…make that the first one on the last row…


+ almighty-slayer on July 13th, 2009 at 1:28 pm said:

Dustin S. FTW

No that’s not me. But that comic make me laugh :D


+ koalafrappe on July 13th, 2009 at 1:39 pm said:

To everyone saying that they don’t make sense, it is hard to incorperate the theme of time into a comic when you are limited to one page. The only easy way to do this is quick jokes. Anyhow, just saying, don’t be too harsh. Also, I agree that the voting is flawed, but it isn’t that big of a deal, right? ;D


+ Xoonaka on July 13th, 2009 at 1:43 pm said:

Alright, now I’ve read all of them… and none of them meet all the criteria in my mind. There are a couple ok ones… but the best ones generally ignored the theme of “Rachet and Clank meet themselves in a different time”.

That said, I think I’m going to vote for the one with the PS3 Rachet talking to PS1 Rachet about all the advancements. Even though it breaks the fourth wall a bit, it’s kind of funny and is far more cohesive then many of the others, plus it sticks to theme.


+ kingmuscle on July 13th, 2009 at 2:03 pm said:

lol, at keith. B

what the eff was i thinking???? lol

the sad part is, i acctually thouhgt it was funny when i wrote it, lol


+ Xoonaka on July 13th, 2009 at 2:04 pm said:

To be more explicit, here’s where my votes are going:



+ almighty-slayer on July 13th, 2009 at 2:06 pm said:

i can’t even read most of them.

No doubt the ones with the best art will win, not the best comics


+ hoofrog on July 13th, 2009 at 2:30 pm said:

I thought we had to use the template given. Several comics had way more than three panes. What’s the deal? I thought the challenge was only using the three panes to tell a story. Oh well, here’s my entry:



+ Daimomaru on July 13th, 2009 at 2:48 pm said:

Hi guys, is great to see my three pages there but I wanted to say that the third page is the first and the first is the third…can you fixt the order…^__^ thanks! Mine is the Josue A one.


+ Dolten on July 13th, 2009 at 2:50 pm said:

Oh hell yes R&C has been my fav since the first DONT STOP the R&C greatness!!!!!


+ Daimomaru on July 13th, 2009 at 2:58 pm said:

Here’s mine BTW…check it out guys, thanks again! http://www.flickr.com/photos/playstationblog/3717438372/in/set-72157621392384464/


+ Dolten on July 13th, 2009 at 3:06 pm said:

boss fights were never toooo hard just a hell of a lot of fun


+ oneangrymob464 on July 13th, 2009 at 3:14 pm said:

i never got the schwag bag from the uncharted competition :-(


+ Xoonaka on July 13th, 2009 at 3:22 pm said:


To be honest, I didn’t play the first games. I just like the sentiment of the comic. It’s easily read, the art is decent, and it follows the criteria of Rachet meeting a past self.

Like I said, I wish the creator had avoided the fourth wall, but I still think this one did the best job of following all the rules… so it should be rewarded.


+ Azira013 on July 13th, 2009 at 3:23 pm said:

I like the ones by Travis F and Jeff T

The Canadian shwag Clank wears gets my vote!


+ BlooodyCow on July 13th, 2009 at 3:46 pm said:

@Jeff Rubenstein
I think people want to forget about that “issue” :)


+ tveye363 on July 13th, 2009 at 4:08 pm said:

I don’t see anything in the rules about them having to meet their past selves. It just says the comic has to be about time. That past selves thing just seemed like a chance for inspiration…

Anyways, mine is the very first one. Lemme know what you guys think of it :D


+ Nomik2 on July 13th, 2009 at 4:20 pm said:

What if someone just spams a comic for page views?

@41 – apparently it’s ok, as they say they don’t care how you get the votes.


Go Canada!


+ starboy11 on July 13th, 2009 at 4:47 pm said:

yeah it should just be about time

and my fav is:


+ soldierone on July 13th, 2009 at 5:20 pm said:

Haha people like my comic thats an awesome feeling! There are some really amazing ones though too! Next time you guys should open up the layout a bit more, like how someone did a full 3 pager haha, didnt know we were aloud to do that. Vote for this one though! :) Awesome contest! http://www.flickr.com/photos/playstationblog/3716643107/in/set-72157621392384464/

Wish I could’ve joined.


+ NewYork214 on July 13th, 2009 at 5:33 pm said:

kinda sucks how you have to vote since you cant read any of them without clicking on them lol. to bad you couldnt show us like 10 at a time and we pick the one we like best until we are just down to 1.


+ waffman11 on July 13th, 2009 at 6:14 pm said:

Dylan S.’s is the best, although I could tell what the ending was from the first panel.


+ invader_alec on July 13th, 2009 at 7:03 pm said:


Glad you like it so much!!
But the 4th wall doesn’t apply to comics, now does it? :)
