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 69A: The New High Priest
(Topical?) A change at the top of the Church is happening - in your P.O.W.!, is it from a death, politics or an assassination? Or something even more occult or sinister? Tell a story about the arrival of a new High Priest!
Topic 69B: Set a Thief to catch a Thief
Sometimes the only way to stop a thief is to get someone who knows how they think - write a P.O.W.! about a thief being hired to stop another thief.
Topic 69C: Character Design (The High Priest/The Thief)
Make a one-page character design for the main character from challenge A or challenge B. Include some extra heads with different expressions for the character, different equipment etc - up to 4 extra expressions!
One or All-Deadline: Sunday, April 28th, 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.
