CC87 - The rules (or rule) by andydougan
12-18-01
So, the question on everyone's lips is: what crazy rules have you dreamt up for CC87?
I thought I'd disallow text in the third panel.
Won't that result in a lot of unfunny strips?

There it is, then. Put the whole of "War and Peace" into the first two panels if you like, but there must be no text whatsoever in the last. So ixnay on the arrationnay, ialogueday and oughtthay. I've seen a number of strips in the past which do this to very amusing effect (and the above isn't one of them), so it should be possible. Just blacking out the last panel and pretending it isn't there doesn't count, by the way. It has to contribute somehow to the comic. Other than that, anything goes. As usual, multiple entries accepted, nay, encouraged.
Oh, and though it's not required, extra marks if you manage to include the word "tool" at some point. This can be incorporated into another word (e.g. "stool"), split over two words (e.g. "too late") or just on its own (e.g., er, "tool").
Judgement will be meted out in the wee hours of Saturday morning GMT, which should be between 22.00 and 23.00 on Friday, EST.

I finally find these comic competitions, start thinking about ideas, and now I can't do anything, unless you want all three slides blank, or some text on the first two but nothing else!

It's part of the comic. It's not cheating- I mean for the "screen" to go dark that way.

Reality is hard to prove if you think about it. Our senses can be fooled. Our whole existence could be a hallucination on your or my part...
Whoa...I never thought of that...
Reality could be nothing more than an illusion, sustained by nothing more than our belief in it...
Wow...You know, I'm beginning to doubt that we really exist at --

Comic Contest 87 - Philistines! by evil_d
12-19-01
I'm so proud of the rich underground music scene we have in this town. Last weekend I saw three different trance jazz shows, and had lunch with one of the bands.
Tomorrow night I'm going to see "Squall". They play revisionist metal, which is basically an attempt to recapture the sensibilities of the '80s with modern--
Yeah, I only listen to Top 40 stations.

Let me guess: your comic creating problems started when you quit using MS Internet Explorer.

Hey! Plank-boy! Don't you know beards went out of fashion years ago? And lose the loincloth, you look like a prick!
Don't mock the son of god, specky, or I'll get biblical on your tubby ass.
Oh yeah, what are you going to do about it?

And for people having the comic maker page loading problem, just hit stop once the empty combo boxes have appeared. That should fix it.

Andy's E-mail Corner

A Ken Kaufman asks:

Just a suggestion -- you might want to append something to the rules
suggesting that the default asiangirls in the last frame is
functionally
equivalent to an all-black panel.

Also, could you clarify on the use of "word props" such as ZAP in the
last
panel? Not that I have any plans to use one, but someone might.

Yours forever,
Ken

Okay, folks, the default asiangirls aren't allowed in the last panel, unless they're actually integral to the strip. Same applies to the black panel. For example, Nate's entry above is legal.

And feel free to include "word props". Graphic-text is fine, just not text-text.

If there are any more entries after such obfuscated rules, it'll be a miracle.
