Okay, kids. We're jumping from the Industrial Age to the Space Age for this one, and going with a sort of future thing. The rules are as follows.
1. You must use at least one robot (Clango, Red Robot, the Exploding Dog robot.)
2. Any other characters used must be non-human and also not a creature that actually exists. We're all smart enough to figure out which are the fanciful ones, so I'm not going to bother listing the acceptable ones.
3. All props are allowed.
4. All backgrounds are allowed, but use your judgment as to which ones are best in keeping with the "future" theme.
5. To encourage thinking outside the box (or panels, as it were), and because I don't feel like going through 30 strips about ass-sex, anyone using Red Robot must NOT use him as the Tobor character.
Corrolary to 5--no sexual references, period. Making jokes about anal probing from alien abductors is like shooting fish in a barrel (especially if Tobor is doing the probing), and I'd like to see some less obvious gags.
Good luck, have fun, no eye-gouging, fish-hooking, or groin-kicking, and I will announce the winner in about 72 hours (or so.)
