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 62A: Shattered Gates (Event)
The Gates are down, wanton destruction follows. Are you going to depict the lead-up to the shattering, or the aftermath? Who has done this, to who and why? Answer these questions and more! Make it big, brash and exciting!
Topic 62B: Native People's Legend: Celts
Take a Celtic legend and put your creative mind to work on depicting it! It's best to stick to the legends on this one, but as always in P.O.W.!, creative approaches are welcomed! The Celts covered a broad swathe of Europe in the Iron Age, and there's a lot of material for this one.
You can start on the wiki page for the Celts, here.
Topic 61C: Environment Design
If you don't have time for the pages, crank out an enviro where your story would have taken place. Either the Gates, hanging destroyed (or in their pre-shattered condition) with the surrounding terrain, or a Celtic village/fortress/monument your story would have circled around. Do as many views as you have time for!
One or All-Deadline: Sunday, July 29th, 2012, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.
You can present your solution as a minimum of TWO pages to any practical maximum you wish. Previously, we encouraged standard comic book pages, but it's beyond time to broaden the challenge in P.O.W.! Your pages can be any format, but make sure they line up to the same specs for each page.
Standard comic specs are 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 TWO 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)
To all of you who have supported the P.O.W.! Challenges, from the bottom of my heart I thank you.
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.
