In all P.O.W.! Challenges, you can interpret the art any way you wish, and the more creatively, the better. Any media. B&W or Color, unless we specifically point out otherwise.
Topic 59A: Starwatcher
As an homage to the legendary Moebius, who passed away recently, Challenge A is "Starwatcher". You can, as usual, interpret this topic any way you like, whether you want to free-form off the topic name or take Moebius' original piece as a springboard for your storyline - wherever the topic brings you.
Topic 59B: The Meteor Descends
The Meteor is coming! The end is nigh! (Or is it?) Whether Fantasy or Sci-Fi, whether a sign of impending apocalypse or just a problem that must be solved by a high-tech sci-fi protagonist, a meteor is the centre of this story - will it destroy everyone? Raise the dead as zombies? Be deflected from its course by the Great Wizard? Tell the story!
Topic 59C: Starwatching
Re-interpret Moebius' Starwatcher piece with your own characters and scenery, characters from other stories, comic book characters you feel fit the mood of that piece, whatever suits your mood!
One or All-Deadline: Sunday, April 22nd, 2012, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.
You can present your solution as a minimum of THREE to any practical maximum you wish 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--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 realize you're running out of time, try to get at least THREE pages finished by the deadline. That's all you need to qualify for polling..
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)
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.

I'm really trying to get something finished for this one. I've never worked on a comic before but it's something I've always had a great interest in doing.
This is my idea in it's most basic form.
Plot: Life support system failing as protagonist floats through space in a solar powered shuttle trying to get within charging range of a star. Protagonist turns off life support system in exchange for thrusters to make one final attempt at getting within range. (WILL HE MAKE IT!? TUNE IN (sometime next week) TO FIND OUT!)
