As we discussed a couple of weeks ago, I’m going to try something that is, as far as I know, unprecedented in the comic book world: Comic Book Improv. This is very experimental and “out there”, and as a result the PSF* is very high. Per the new mantra, however, we have Permission to Suck! If you’re daring enough to take part in what very well could be
an unmitigated disaster the coolest thing ever to appear on the Internet, join me after the jump.
First, this probably isn’t how the overall “Crowd Sourced Comic” will be, but until I figure out more of the detail on that and get some legal things figured out, I thought this would be a fun thing to try.
Second, having said that, here’s how this particular experiment will work. All you have to do is to vote on the various options below. After one week, I’ll take the highest vote-getting answer from each category and create a short comic book adventure (probably four pages) with it. With that, we’re off! Think of this as actors in a comedy troupe taking shouted suggestions from the audience for an improv routine.
Choose one of the following six characters to appear as the main protagonist of the adventure (click each for a larger version). There are no female choices because this is difficult enough already and I suck at drawing women:
- Alien invasion
- Fraternity initiation gone wrong
- Hero on a date
- Natural catastrophe
- Origin story
- Super-team tryouts
- Slugfest (senseless, random, violent fight)
- Villain(s) threatens innocent civilians
- Villain(s) are robbing a bank
- Villain(s) have set a trap for the hero
