    P.O.W.! Challenge 40: Playback...

    P.O.W.! Challenge 40: Playback...


    P.O.W.! Challenge 40
    Deadline: Sunday, April 25, 2010, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.

    Topic: Playback...


    This time out, you have a full month, because you're required to do a cover SUITABLE FOR RACK DISPLAY as well as the usual 2-6 pages, and because the topic is a bit weird this time out.

    The title is "Playback" which refers to a person, male or female, any age, historical era, genre, etc., who can READ the past OR future like a tape recorder or CD player just by touching something or someone. Try to limit yourself here a bit, or you'll get into real trouble quickly. Narrow down specifically what the playback is, if there are any limitations, and how the "playback" is done--by touching any item, maybe touching only a certain of item, maybe only an environmental item like a huge rock or a building with varying degrees of accuracy, or maybe actually touching a real person maybe in a certain way. There might even be some item used as a talisman or "facilitator" by the "reader."

    How much you want to go into the rationale or rarity/commonality of this ability is up to you. Obviously, the specific way you use this "ability" in a storyline is up to you.

    You can interpret the art any way you wish, and the more creatively, the better. Any media. B&W or Color for the inside pages. The cover MUST be color, of course, and should contain an author/artist's name (yours) and some inconspicuous corporate/publisher chop mark that should say "CAPOW!" as we did for the cover competition.

    You can present your solution as a minimum of TWO to a TENTATIVE maximum of SIX pages which adhere to standard comic specs as below...PLUS THE COVER...and, yes, you can have the first or last (or both) as a splash page if you want. You can go to additional pages without asking if you have a decent idea that requires it--just don't get too extreme on page counts.

    REMEMBER: You don't have to have a complete comic to qualify for polling--if you're idea requires six pages or so, go for it, but if you realize you're running out of time, try to get at least TWO finished plus the cover by the deadline. That's all you need to qualify.

    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, trash talk, post WIPs and post your final art. See the READ THIS FIRST thread for all specs.

    Good luck.

    Because of the Easter holiday, this one is four weeks rather than the usual two weeks to see if it will allow more participation or just cause a lot more procrastination.

    P.O.W.! Challenge 41 will be posted on Sunday Midnight, April 25, 2010.

    A little note here for all of you who have supported the P.O.W.! Challenges...thankyewthankyewthankyew...

    Just a reminder--those of you who didn't get a chance to finish exactly the way you wanted to, or ran into deadline problems, remember there is a sticky section where you can post your stuff when you do get it up to speed.

    Probably won't have time to do this one. ( I know, lame. D8 ) But it inspired me something for a character I already created a long time ago.

    Cool idea. Will see what I can do. April's going to be busy (in a good way, I hope).

    anyone interested in writing for me? I'm not very experienced with continous comics, but I want to learn it. The one thing, I think I'm good at is character design.

    Some pencil work. I got six pages planned and I am on schedule to get that much done up to inks, I think.

    Oh! I almost forgot. Sorry for the cockeyed cropping. My ratassed HP (windows type) scanning program decided to auto correct rotation for me. I'll fix it later.
