Jamie Smart has won the TOXIC Crazy Comic Poll and his strip, Count von Poo, will now have a regular spot in the comic.
Jamie announced he'd won the poll via Twitter earlier today and thanked everyone who'd voted for him.
TOXIC's Supplement featured work from a host of great creators and, hopefully the project will encourage Egmont to develop its comics brands further.
Count von Poo was well ahead in the online poll from Day One, followed by Zombie Nation by Luke Paton and Laura Howell.
Jamie is of course, perhaps best known for his 10-issue comic Bear and My Own Genie in The Dandy, but his credits also include Desperate Dan, Whubble and Fish Head Steve. Since 2004, he's also been developing shows with Cartoon Network.
Other contenders in the poll included Luke Paton, Laura Howell, Paul H Birch, John Freeman, Steve Harrison, Paul J Palmer, David Hailwood, Paul Harrison-Davies, Shane Oakley, John Erasmus, Lew Stringer and Stuart Arrowsmith.
