    The Special P.O.W.! 10 Challenge Poll...

    The Special P.O.W.! 10 Challenge Poll...


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

    Topic: There will be THREE to choose from


    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)

    See the READ THIS FIRST thread for all specs.

    This is the poll for establishing the final Topic(s) for the Special 10th Challenge for P.O.W.! to start April 8th, 2008. The final project will be between 6 and 16 standard comic pages in either black and white or color. You will vote for three of the topics. You can vote for less, but you can't vote for more. This poll will close in approximately 12 days.

    The Challenge, which consists of writing, drawing, and painting a standard comic to the specs posted, will run one month, April 8 through May 6, 2008 and is the first of a series of Special Events we will be doing on our "anniversaries" (10th, 20th, 30th Challenge, and so on). It is open to anyone who wants to give it a try. This poll will determine a set of THREE final topics that will be posted on the 8th, any one of which you can choose to use for your comic. If you feel lucky and ain't got nothin' else to do, you can actually do all three to be treated as three separate entries! Just keep in mind, you'll be competing with yourself. As an alternative, you can do all three topics as one entry totaling no more than 16 pages with the three topics as separate comics within the 16 pages. This would be treated as ONE entry.

    This is also being posted in the 10th Challenge Lounge thread to get the info out as best we can.

    The topics in the poll are above, followed by the number of additional mentions (*) each one received in our first go-round...

    It looks like we're heading for three horror-ish topics--Poe, Zombies, and golem. They're all three great ideas, but I'm hoping we end up with at least one alternative for those who aren't into that genre.

    You could also take a short story of Arthur C. Clarke or someone else (the first would be a fitting tribute maybe?).

    The number 10 is coming on strong (and maybe the super delegates will back a strong unrelated one such as "close encounters" or "A tribute").

    Also, less horrific material can fall under the short story thing. I cite Rip van Winkle which is more of a fantasy, or else off the wall things like A Midsummer Night's Dream (which kind of includes its own stage directions). If old plays count, then there is a bunch of "spear and toga" stuff like Oedipus Rex available.

    ...and I wanted so badly to do Giant Bug Things and Incompetent terrorists...

    Don't mind me. I'm rabble-rousing.



    Add: Actually, it really doesn't matter, because you poor bastards are going to be getting some of the better suggestions anyway as future standard challenges.

    The poll's closed. Thank you for your efforts and help. The formal announcement will be posted on Tuesday for the start of the One-Month Special Challenge, but don't assume what you see in the poll is exactly what we're going to be doing. (Prevents cheating...)

    There are a few things I have to verify on Public Domain and fair use so we don't get ourselves in trouble...

    No Cheating?

    If they're lesbian zombies then I hope they are from outer space. Otherwise it is just not believable.
