    ADVANCE NOTICE--Challenge 10 Special Event

    ADVANCE NOTICE--Challenge 10 Special Event


    P.O.W.! Challenge 10 will be a special one-month six page minimum/16 page maximum Special Challenge Event!
    Deadline: To be posted April 8, 2008, and ending May 6, 2008, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.

    Topic: To be determined by you peons


    Note that the dates above have been changed--see my note in my last post...

    As soon as you can, post one or more suggestions for a topic that you would like to see as the Challenge 10 Topic. If someone posts something you like, ALSO post it in your post so we can start to get a consensus. A few days before the deadline is to start, we knock heads here and come up with the actual final topic. Of course and as usual, you will be able to interpret it any way you wish, in any media. B&W or Color.

    For Challenge 10, you will present your solution as a minimum of SIX to a maximum of SIXTEEN pages which adhere to standard comic specs as below...and, yes, you can have the first or last (or both) as a splash page if you want.

    Standard Comic Book Size:

    --Trim size: 6 5/8" x 10 1/4"
    --Live art area: 6" x 9"
    --Bleed size before trimming: 6 7/8" x 10 1/2" (1/8" in all directions)

    This thread will be the place you ask questions on this challenge and post your suggestions (No art is to be posted in this thread). See the READ THIS FIRST thread for all specs.

    I'm also posting this as an announcement in the lounge so as many people as possible get to see it.

    "He made me do it!"

    CLOSE ENCOUNTERS would be cool

    Pick a short story by Edgar Allen Poe and illustrate it (Poe is out of copyright because it's so old.)

    Poe not only wrote horror, but black comedies, mystery and adventure.

    I like "He made me do it."

    I like Poe something.

    Suggestion:

    Four 13-year-old Japanese schoolgirls highjack a NASA flight to the moon.
    A civil war between Hollywood hairdressers.
    One of those days when nothing goes right.
    Giant bug things.
    Trying to do something where everybody involved is "over-the-top" politically correct.
    The world's most incompetent terrorists.
    Alabama declares war on Sweden/Italy/Mongolia.


    Add: Close Encounters is cool, too.

    I would suggest

    "Quotes of Ilaekae"

    A person could write a wickedly long set of novels to rival the Harry Potter Series based on all the shit you say.

    Ok as much as I love zombies here are some serious suggestions:

    -"It's alive!"
    -The final stand
    -10, as a number/theme/symbol, whatever
    -"Something's not right here"
    -"that's the beauty of it!"
    -The barmans tale

    Sure you can, watch this:

    Close Encounters with 13 year old Japanese Schoolgirls.

    That should perk up the FBI surveillance bots.

    And please, don't turn around and make what I just typed the topic, I beg you.

    P.O.W. needs this kind of publicity.

    The most likely one I can think of is "The Fall of the House of Usher" which could be viewed as a zombie story and is very atmospheric. It has both indoor and outdoor environmental set piece potential, characters and dialog, catacombs, and a grand finale.

    Ha, I'm thinking the raven, where lenore comes back as the undead!
    Whatever gets chosen, is this one going to get some advertising on other parts of the forums? Seems like it could really do with it.
