Riding through your town with his head on fire

Roll up for the Magical Mystery Tour.

For those of you who didn't pay attention the first time around, the Comic Cup (founded by famed heroin addict skagg and now, in its second incarnation, being moderated by me) is an exciting new forum in which to test your hilarious-comic-writing skills. Unlike the popular and longstanding Comic Contest, the Comic Cup actually has losers, instead of just a whole lot of people who didn't win. It works like this: eight contestants square off in a seven-round single-elimination series. I, as the moderator, provide a list of rules for each round. Two contestants each create a comic that follows those rules. Our esteemed panel of judges, which consists of the six non-participating contestants, plus anyone else who wants to be a judge, cast votes for their preferred comic. The contestant who earns the most votes advances to the next round, while the loser is mocked openly. Whoever proves comedian enough to emerge victorious from the final battle wins widespread admiration and the right to moderate the next Comic Cup.

Sign yourself up while the signing's good. Only eight people may meet on the field of battle. As of this posting, we have five participants: ladyjdotnet, Spankling, crabby, wirthling, and gabe_billings. Join now, and reserve your chance to demonstrate that you're ten times as funny as all those jokers combined. Anyone who didn't participate in the last Cup gets first crack at a contestant position in this one. If you only want to be a judge, and not a competitor, that's fine, just say so.

I'm thinking up some rules now. We'll get things underway as soon as it seems reasonable. We might wait until the weekend's over in case some people only check the site from work, but if there's a good response before then, we could start sooner.

Man you're impatient. Note that in the previous thread I said I was interested in being a judge, not a contestant. So that's at least one more person you need. And wirthling was leaning more toward the judge side, too.

Gabe is right, if we can get enough contestants so that we can oblige those who said they'd prefer to be judges, we'll do that. Anyway, I'm not done thinking up the rules yet.

Participants, remember, you should be able to check the site and cast a vote on an average of once every two days, at least. If you know in advance of any time when you'll be away, say something and we'll be able to work around it.

Okay, rather than have to make a judgment call about who should and shouldn't be a player this time, I'm going to call a halt to the signing-up process now that we have eight people who want to play.

The players are: LadyJ, Spankling, crabby, Drexle, NastyPope, descolada99, skagg, and kaufman.

Judging of each round will be carried out by the six non-participating contestants, plus wirthling, Gabe Billings, and myself. If anyone else wants to join as a judge during the contest, say so and we'll add you as soon as the current round finishes.

I'm drawing up a rule set and randomly generating the brackets now. I'll post the brackets and the rules for the first round shortly.

Here are the brackets:

Round 1: Drexle vs. skagg
Round 2: descolada99 vs. LadyJ
Round 3: NastyPope vs. Spankling
Round 4: crabby vs. kaufman

Round 5 will feature the winners of rounds 1 and 2; and Round 6 will feature the winners of rounds 3 and 4. I imagine LadyJ will be back from her convention in time for her match, but if not, we'll push it back until she is.

A general note about the rules: feel free to be as creative as you want within their constraints. To put it another way, anything not expressly forbidden is permitted. If you follow the letter but not the spirit, we're going to call that "ingenuity" rather than "bad faith".

Round 1: Drexle vs. skagg

1. All characters must be robots.

2. The strip must be an excerpt from a "reality" TV show of your own creation. You should probably explain the premise of the show in the strip.

3. The characters must discuss or refer directly to the background image, or some object therein. They don't have to specifically call it a background image (though they can), but, for example, if you use one of the ambulance pictures, and a character says "What are all these ambulances doing here?", then you're set.

You have 48 hours to post your comics. Good luck and may the best stripper win.

That round 6 between NastyPope and kaufman should be pretty funny.

Though skagg gets bonus points for clever use of the splitter, I'm going cast my vote for Drexle. Two reasons: (1) Tobor breaking the fourth wall. (2) Gyno-bots.
