The Battle of the Catalaunian Plains (or Fields), also called the Battle of Châlons (also spelled Chalons or Chalon) or Battle of the Campus Mauriacus, took place in 451 between a coalition led by the Roman general Flavius Aetius and the Visigothic king Theodoric I on one side and the Huns and their allies commanded by Attila on the other. It was one of the last major military operations of the Western Roman Empire and marks the apex of the career of Flavius Aetius.
But that's not what this contest is about.
Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel by Ray Bradbury which was first published in 1953. The novel presents a future American society in which the masses are hedonistic and critical thought through reading is outlawed. The central character, Guy Montag, is employed as a "fireman" (which, in this future, means "bookburner"). The number "451" refers to the temperature at which book paper combusts.
Haha, you see what Ray Bradbury did there? In a dystopian future, "Fireman" means something completely different from what we understand a fireman to be. And that's what CC 451 is all about.
Your comic must explore a future time in which some common modern-day occupation has taken on a whole new meaning. Here's an example:
