Cloudscape Comic Battle Returns!

Cloudscape Comic Battle

Cloudscape is very excited to announce a revival of our classic blog event: Comic Battle! Every week, on Wednesday evening, we will announce a new comic theme on the Cloudscape blog; this theme might be a word, a phrase, a sentence, anything that we think could be good inspiration for a comic. Then, we will give people one week to create a comic strip around that theme. Once all the comics are in, they’ll be all posted on our blog, and everyone will have a week to vote on which one they like best. This will continue every week, so generally each Wednesday a new theme will be revealed, the comics from the previous week will be displayed, and the winner from the week before that will be announced.

And now, here is the first week’s comic theme. All comics are due by 7:30 on Wednesday, June 24:
“Worst part about summer.”

Comic Battle Rules

  • Anyone may enter, even if they are not regular attendees at Cloudscape meetings
  • Original work only
  • Content can be anything, though should restrict itself to a PG rating or lower.
  • Words are optional in the comic and it may be as long or as short as you like – however, it must have at least two panels. A single panel isn’t a comic; it’s just a picture.
  • Files should be at most 900×1800 pixels, web-ready jpg or png
  • All comics should be sent to Bevan Thomas at [email protected].

Good luck! I look forward to reading all your submissions!


Comic Battle Round 30: Electric Chair

The battle is SO ON. Look at all these entries!
Normally, the single panels and illustrations don’t count… but I’m totally stoked about the participation count from Free Comic Book Day. So I’ll let it slide, just this once… any future one panels and illustrations will be disqualified ;P

Did you get your free comics on comic book day? 😀
