I'm terribly sorry for being so late! There were production delays, and my stars decided to hate each other and wouldn't appear on camera together. Then the director walked off, and the writer wouldn't work with the new director... A nightmare for any Executive producer, really. I was at the end of my rope, but I couldn't tie the noose properly, so it broke and I'm alive.
It's been said that there are no more original ideas in the universe. What's worse, Hollywood has taken the best of them and re-used them until they're no better than horse manure.
Where am I going with this? I have no idea. I just found out I had to do this a few minutes ago, so bear with me.
Your mission is to play Hollywood by doing one of the following:
- Re-make a classic strip. (This has been done with Cowboy Physics, so that one's off limits. I'm too lazy to look up the thread, too, so don't ask me.) Stand-alone comics only for source material, please.
- Adapt a classic piece of literature into a stripcreator comic. Ah, hell. Contemporary fiction too. Be sure to let us know in your post which story you're referencing, because some of us (me) are too stupid to get it otherwise.
- Adapt a movie into a comic. (Yeah, yeah, been done -- bite me!)
- Create a sequel to one of your comics. Please include the comic in question for point of reference. Stand-alone comics only for source material, please.
Here's the catch: You must do this the Hollywood way. Big names, big explosions, and most importantly, you must cheapen your source material to the point where it's no longer special! (No, I don't quite know what that means, either.)
Series are welcome. Archived comics -- except as noted above -- are not.
Any questions? God, I hope not. I'm already confused enough.
(Strips will be judged early Friday evening or Late Friday night, depending on whether or not I think about it when I get home from work.)
This is not my empire.
