Warbonds and T-shirts are codenames for shovel, right?

This is amazing. I love the whole vintage feel, the lettering looks handwritten and I think that really makes the whole thing feel authentic. Fave.

Oh my god I can't even stop laughing.

I don't think people in the comments realize this is what propaganda was like, essentially.

I'll have you know that man is Scottish as far as you can trace it! Inaccuracy may be alright on the field but It will not do in the artist's military Maggot!

Probably should of changed it from "Person of African Descent" to "Demo-maggot", but that's just me D:

And after checking out the other one first, this one just isn't as strong. XD Probably wouldn't have been, but eh... Still got to love that style.

hahaha- let me explain what I mean

the original came from a superman comic where it says something like "superman says: slap a jap with warbonds and stamps" and it shows a hand slapping a japanese dude, and in this it was going to be "whack a black" but I changed it to "person of african descent" due to valve mentioning that the demoman is... of african descent

so I just played with the original and the words a little

it's really just all nonsense and meant to capture the 1940s look/feel

True o-o Pretty hard to bypass sensitivity here though XD;;

And yeah, that should be the aim for most. Funny how the Looney Toons cartoons were so much more violent then characters like Superman and stuff XD

Top ten position, there you go~

(The best art I've seen among current entries, but the slogan isn't that catchy. Though I've seen very few decent slogans in this competition.)

We are Soldiers, Proud and True!
Our mission to kill you
We come with fireworks
Smoky and crackling blue
Not a thing left standing
When we march through!

Fight for the Soldier! Fight for Victory!
