As of the morning I put this up, I am back from a crazy weekend and am very tired. Point out any mistakes I make and I will fix them later. But point them out quietly, as I have a headache. Shhhhhh....
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 64A: The Wild Hunt (event/character)
Phantom hunters pour across the sky/land/sea in pursuit of their prey. Are they capricious spirits, looking to kill anyone they come across, spirits of vengeance or embodiments of nature's rage against humanity? You decide in your P.O.W.! about the Wild Hunt.
Topic 64B: Teenage Dreams (Theme/characters)
They're always more vivid. Create a story about a group of teenagers and their struggles between their awesome ambitions and the lousy real world. Nerds, jocks, bandmates or superhero sidekicks, your characters want more than the future seems to hold for them, and they're making a plan to get it!
Topic 64C: The protagonist/The Hunter
Design a character for one of the two challenges above. Either a disaffected teen or the Hunter of the Wild Hunt, your choice.
One or All-Deadline: Sunday, October 28th, 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. 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.
