    Comics Start-up!

    I'm putting this here because most of the discussion has been in this section so far. If it's not appropriate here, would one of the mods be kind enough to move us where we belong?



    CA has Concept-oriented community activities for creatures (COW), environments (EOW), characters (CHOW), industrial design (IDW), and random lunacy (3CH), but until now, there hasn't been a specific equivalent for Comics. That will change the first week of January when we launch ...ummm...damn... we don't have a name yet, but trust us...it'll be in all caps...and it won't smell like a damn Muppet. It's gonna be ugly, it's NOT gonna be a walk in the park, and you will probably cry a lot. Hell! What else could you want?!?

    We (Ilaekae and llothcat, so far) will be establishing a weekly/bi-weekly "competition" and learning experience for those who might be interested in sequential comics, and comics in general. We'll be dealing with design issues, coloring, pencil and inking, lurid prose, layout, character development, environments and genres, and all the neato stuff that makes life worth getting up for when you can't read real words but like lookin' at the pitchurs anywayz...

    This thread is the official thread for any and all discussion on this majestic foray into the unknown, and all suggestions, comments, and phone numbers of cute younger sisters (or brothers, as the case may be) will be appreciated.

    First assignment: What the hell are we gonna call this thing? The discussion is now open.

    We also want input on what you think we should be doing. We'd like to keep the events to WEEKLY as much as possible, with the possibility of a few extending to an additional week or two where it makes sense.

    No position or belief, whether religious, political or social, is valid if one has to lie to support it.--Alj Mary

    I'm voting for a 2-week deadline, no page limit but a recommended of 5 or so pages. If you submit far less, it better be damn well justified. Also, very very vague concepts, like 'Fatigue,' or '2 am.'

    if we go with the bi-weekly deadline, the logical naming would be F.U.C.K.
    Fortnightly Unpublished Comic Kompetition


    Other idea of mine is to extend the deadline to 4 weeks, make it a bigger deal and end up publishing it in a book that would be available like the T-Shirts or Calender. Only the best, of course.

    Dunno what it would be called, though.

    COM-BAT (Comics Battle)

    3 pages of script provided (without finished dialogue or panel breakdowns, leaving folks with the freedom to tell the story in their own way)

    Grade on storytelling, stylistic consistency, drawing skills and wow factor.

    At least Icarus tried!

    I'm suggesting 3 page stories on a general or specific theme.. like uhh.. loneliness or something involving tightrope walking elephants (obviously neither of those things should ever be the actual theme). Three pages is plenty for a short story and not a heinous amount of drawing to do in one week.

    I don't really mind how it all goes down though, I'll probably participate no matter what.

    SAW is an appealing acronym.

    I like SAW, as an acronym.

    I like the bi-weekly (or longer) approach, with more, completed work due. It's more of a challenge, and isn't that what this IS? A challenge?

    Thanks for getting the ball rolling on this! It'll be something to look forward to after I've been beaten and mangled in the LMS tournament.

    How bout SOW (Sequence Of the Week)? Already have a cow, so maybe throw a pig into the mix.

    I like the 3 page idea. It would be cool if the structure changed every other week. The first week would be with a somewhat structured script and the next week could be an open topic like alice_ mentioned. I think you would gain some knowledge about sequential art you may not have thought about from the structured challenge and then apply what you learned to the open challenge the following week, and so on.

    I like SAW as the acronym,
    bi-monthly or monthly time limits
    three page minimum, no max
    fairly vague stories, no scripts.

    Well that is what I would like to see, but who cares what I think?

    First thing that came to my mind, too.

    Who thought of that POW acronym? What I like about POW is it reminds me of comic books and, of course, the old Batman series. Heh.

    It has to be Panels of the Week.

    POW!

    Anyone think of any other comic onomatopoeia acronyms that'd work?

    Do you Mentler?

    I vote for the 3 page comic too! Can be every week or 2 weeks!

    Why not just call it "POW!" (with an exclamation point) as an homage to comics? There's no rule that says it has to be an acronym...

    Sequential/Comic of the Week (SCOW) Covers us if we don't have a literal sequential? We could have the Muppet as an anchor...

    You could also make a Comic Cover of the week, and make a cover for the last winner of the sequential of the week or something like that

    POW! is a definite winner. Looking forward to seeing this start.
    Although SCOW, SOW works too, really I don't mind what you call it, I just want to participate.

    I don't care about the name, if it's not too many pages, I'm in. We could even have a defined format and publish them as PDF anthologies...
