Did you know on this day in 1951 Fidel Castro was ejected from a Winter League baseball game after hitting a batter. He later gave up baseball for politics.

Or

in 1807 President Thomas Jefferson exposed a plot by Aaron Burr to form a new republic in the Southwest

Well you do now, which brings me neatly onto your quest for this week.

A while ago I started creating a series called On this day, which tried to use daily facts as source for 'teh funney' here's an example

[Click to view comic: 'On this day (1st March)']

I gave up after 5 days as I was trying to do the day I created the strip, which turned out harder than it looked.

This is where you guys come in, though I'll be a little more lenient with the format.

Pick a day, any day in the year, 366 of those beauties to choose from, and create a strip based on factoids that happened on that day,  these can be Historical from any country, Sports related, Musical, TV, or even personal to you, as long as it happened on the day in question.  

You can use as many panels as you like for your nuggets, though if you want to follow the format I used that's fine.

Pop the day you choose in the title or somewhere in the strip as a reference, other than that have at it.

 

Here's a couple of reference sites to get you started, though I reckon a quick google search would yield more

Judging in about a week or so.

On this day, in 2005, I made this comic:

2005 was the only year I ever made a comic on January 22nd.  Go figure.

More as some ideas actually come to me.

On this day -

In 1860 Britain formally returned the Mosquito Coast to Nicaragua,  something tells me the clue is in the name as to the reason why. 

In 1980 The plot to Ben Affleck's Argo came to fruition.

In 2014 thegovernor judged comic contest 549

Thanks all for entering, some great comics, but the bowler hat of victory may only be worn by one suitor at a time; so it's time to decide.

 

 

Hons:

Brycekain - Bill W, founder of AA

Sycess - Not my Faulklands

Kaufman - August series from way back when

Four_legged_tripod - Feb 29th

 

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner:

EVIL_D

 

Some great entries, but this one tipped the hat

[Click to view comic: 'On January 25th...']

 

Congratulations, the honour of judging cc ??? (wherever we are in the numbering now, I'll leave that decision to you) is yours.

Thanks, Governor!  This was a great contest idea, and I obviously had a lot of fun with it.

Here's a bonus comic.  I didn't know you'd judge today and I already had the "Diet of Worms" panel ready.  Who could pass up a chance to make fun of the Diet of Worms?

[Click to view comic: 'On January 28th...']

New Comic Contest will start right... about... now.
