131 people registered
90 people started
80 people did at least 8 pages
1350 pages of comics was created in 3 days, that's about 60 standard comic books or about as many comics as Marvel publishes a month.
159 people have joined the Pulp Faction boards since registrations for challenge opened
500,000 web page hits were recieved by the forum during the 3 weeks of the challenge
While its hard to say how many individuals visited the forums it can be guessed at between 3000 and 5000 people.

I hope you join us next year for an even better event.
