Welcome fellow strippers, to what you will all come to know as the proving ground of your stripping caliber. Those who battled and fell in previous contests, this is your chance for vindication! Those who are new to the world of the Cup, you have the opportunity to carve out your place in stripping history!
This Comic Cup will have a few similairties to the previous cups in that there are going to be ultimately eight competitors who face each other in single elimination matches. Four preliminaries, two semifinals, and the final round. However, in order to decide *who* exactly gets to fill those spots we must hold an entry round of competition, and it will work like this: Everyone who is interested in competing in Comic Cup III will submit a comic adhering to the rules of the entry round. Once I have declared the round over, are to pick eight other contestants and give each of their entries a score between one and ten. A score of 1 would be just shy of a big pile of arse, and 10 would mean magnificent. The 8 strippers with the highest total vote count go on to be finalists. In the event of a tie where more than 8 strippers qualify, I pick the finalists from among the lowest scoring eligable contestants.
Those of you who do not make it to the preliminary elimination matches will serve as judges, along with the non-participating contestants in any given round. If you do not make it to the preliminaries, and do not wish to be a judge, let me know before we commence with the elimination rounds. The same rules of judging, and the same time constraints for comics apply in Comic Cup III as were abided by in the previous Cup, hosted by evil_d unless otherwise noted in the rules for the particular round.
Any contestant or judge who can't show up for a particular round should notify me in advance. I'm more than willing to make allowances for people's daily and personal lives in this Cup, and rounds can be rescheduled if need be.
The one of you who emerges victorious from the mass of battered and bloody egos will have earned the admiration of your fellow strippers, and the right to take the reigns of the Comic Cup into its fourth incarnation.
I'm going to start writing up some rules... in the mean time, enjoy the sideshow!
