I regularly read a variety of online comics, and for this contest, I will pick a few of my favorites and ask you to write strips that use characters from them. The three strips are Diesel Sweeties, Sinfest, and Pearls Before Swine. The first one has provided artwork for this site, the second one includes characters that are actually depicted on stripcreator by other artists, and the last one features a variety of animal characters, some of whom match animal images available in stripcreator. Here are the rules:
1) Your strip should portray actual characters from one or more of these three strips. It is alright to mix characters from different strips.
2) Any Diesel Sweeties images should portray the actual Diesel Sweeties characters. So, for example, you can use Red Robot C-63 but not Tobor.
3) You may include characters stripcreator doesn't provide images of, using your best judgment to select them.
Since these strips are all heavily satirical, bonus points for good satire. I will give this contest about two weeks, so that you have time to read these strips if you aren't familiar with them already. The first two are web comics, whose entire runs can be read on their respective web sites. The third is syndicated.
Here are some examples I have done in the past for other contests:
This also has IndiePete from Deisel Sweeties in it, but the others are Sinfest characters. It's hilarious how God sometimes mocks the Devil with his hand puppets, especially when he's trying to conduct the serious business of getting someone to sell his soul.
And the winner is RCCOLAMAN for the Sinfest strip. I laughed more at this than at the others. Good job.
