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. To vote, go here...
