P.O.W.! Challenge 70 (A-B) - 6 panels to takeoff
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.
Poll for last time (#69) up as soon as I have one or two behind the scenes things sorted.
Topic 70A: A story in 6 panels
Ernest Hemingway once challenged people to write a story in six words. Can POW!'ers tell a story in 6 panels? Show your stuff! (Page limits obviously suspended for this challenge, but you have to make it 6 panels and 6 panels only)
Topic 70B: The Space Flight
A company is embarking on a new space flight program. But then... some drama happens! Tell a story of what happens when some SNAFU affects a new space flight mission.
One or Both-Deadline: Sunday, May 26th, 2013, 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. Cheers you guys. P.O.W.! People are the best people.
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.
hey that's great ex-machinanater!!!! so my computers weren't able too access internet for like three weeks finally solved that problem for now....i had been trolling the site from my schools comps....hehe. AND THEN there's that whole website thing but the future's looking bright plus i heard kitty's back yeah!!!! can't wait for the next challenge!
@monologish you can still post any idea or panels or extravagant monologues(sweet). but i think ex-machina wins by default. but you can still post for non-comp...becuase no poll has been posted for the challenge yet. i might post something from sheer boredom until the next challenge.
@jssabastian You are the first person to make the connection between monologues and my id.. I will try and put some panels together for this challenge, though I have an almost OCD-ish need to begin things fresh, you know with brand new challenges and sparkling deadlines..find it odd to join something mid-way....I will stop now. Hope you or the moderator post a challenge soon.
