McNeil, that's SUCH a freaky coincidence. I've drawn Snake Plissken and Indiana Jones for this month's PUMMEL!!!!
Vote-wise, I'm gonna have to go with FallenAngel. Witchblade, Bulbasaur and PIkachu all look 100% awesome (Ash is less inspiring though, IMO).
I'd put McNeil in 2nd place - because he managed to make me laugh (again) and the colour palette on this pic feels 'right'. The choice to go with a greeny-blue sky really helps the pic to pop. I like it.
Ridge's is, as always, great - but I'm guessing that the cop on the left is from an old US tv show - and, being from the UK, I have no idea who he is :(
Turtle Boat's is a clever twist on the classic Pulp Fiction image -- but again, I'm not sure who the guy on the right is. Sorry. I'm feeling like an uncool grandad right now :D
I love the style of T minus Zero's piece - but it feels a little bit too 'spread out'. The background is interesting for me (because I love little details) but is features as heavily as the two main characters. With the right composition though, I think this style could look great.

OMG i had to vote for ridge for that genius pairing. wouldve never thought of it in a million years

@Beastie --- that is not Witchblade, that is Lady Death
The Cop is Don Knotts "Barney Fife" and is dead on. Wow, that is a culture shock there, definitely an American Icon. Never would have thought they didn't play that in the UK. It is very odd though. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0053479/
Good job every one there are great things about each one.
Barney may only have one bullet for that gun of his, but when he gets it loaded he's gonna blow Galactus' brains all over the upholstery of the worldship:P
Ridge has an epic pairing, directly on topic and well rendered. GJ all

Voted for Ridge, cool characters choice,
and i really liked that each one of them has his own expression.

Love McNiel's. Made me laugh, both guys are completely in character and composition wise it's got real depth. Even though you didn't get a chance to finish it's one of your strongest. But, and I was really torn, I have to go with Fallenangel. Beautiful pencil work and a wonderfully meaty Lady Death.

Turtle Boat- My number 3 pick. Really nice homage to Pulp Fiction.
Fallenangel- my number 2 pic. Love these pencils. Ash and pikachu look a little flat compared to all the rest of the pic, so 2nd place it is.
T minus zero- Good job. You need to bug your big brother for his old wacom and give him a run for his money.
Ridge- My number 1 pic. Barney Fife is the man, and the likeness is great. Beautiful job per usual.
Great job to all. And congrats to Fallenangel for taking down Ridge! Hope to see you all next month.

My first vote in a PUMMEL ever, and I'm going with Ridge's. It's just too funny. Don Knotts' iconic wide-eyed look is spot-on, and for the Punisher of all people to be there with him -- it's just too damn good!
