Comic Cup VIII - The Serial Cup

Welcome to the latest incarnation of the Comic Cup, a tournament some have called the ultimate test of comedic prowess. But wirthling and I have both won one, so it can't be.

By now you're probably all aware of how this is going to work, but just in case, here's a recap.

At the start of every round, I'll post the first comic in a serial which players then compete to continue. In addition, their comics must comply with given rules.

As soon as both competitors in a pair have posted their comic, voting for the better comic begins. All players except those competing in the match at hand can vote. If there's a tie in the first round, I'll step in and vote. In ties in subsequent rounds, the person with the most votes in previous rounds will win.

The victor goes on to the next round, in which the loser's rule will be used. The next pair then have the task of writing a follow-up to the winning comic.

Here are the match-ups, determined by my closing my eyes and thrusting a pen at a piece of paper upon which names were writ.

israphael vs kramer_vs_kramer
Bazilla vs wirthling
fuzzyman vs DH-01
crabby vs fpd
kaufman vs xpac
skagg vs TheBlairZip
Big Evil Dan vs Kajun Firefly
Kevin Keegans Perm vs ladyjdotnet

In keeping with the traditions of the last two Cups, I'll keep this handy record of the tournament's progress, including who's voted for whom.

We'll kick off Round One tomorrow with the beginning of the first serial, and the match between israphael and kramer. Be there!

Man, I'm in trouble. I pulled DH-01. Kaufman got the free pass to the next round... Lucky dog!

i envisage the voting on this one to be something similar between the choice between **** sandwiches and **** on a stick. i perform very poorly in this sort of situation so itll be another case of me being left behind in the first round no doubt

its like someone walking up to you at a party and demanding you "SAY SOMETHING FUNNY DAMMIT!"

See, basically all you're doing by insulting xpac is gauranteeing that he'll vote against you when you're time is up.

Bit of a silly (or over confident) tactic.

You don't know how right you are. At least you have had the experience before.

If it wasn't for bad luck I wouldn't have no luck at all. D'OH!

Well done Wirthling, though bad news, I've set a nasty rule, so it'll be hard for you next round.

Me vs IsRaphael should be a good fight, as I figure we're both fairly evenly matched, unlike certain other pairings in the first round (cough - KaufmanvsXpac).

KKP vs LadyJ could be good, making the finale.

Oh Wirthling, you know what sucks? You! You know what you suck at? Everything!

Come on, how else am I gonna win, I'm still laughing at his understood comment on the other thread.

I'm not really familiar with fpd so I don't know how big of a challenge this is going to be.

Round 1 - The Calamitous One-Note Character Caper

Here's the start of this round's serial comic. Remember, I'll be making up the rules for this round. I'll try to keep them simple to compensate for the evil ones you're going to have to contend with next round. Speaking of which, DH-01, I still don't have a rule from you. Get it to andydougan@yahoo.co.uk sharpish!

I'm Captain Redundant. I often say superfluous words unnecessarily a lot when I talk.
I'm Corporal Apathy. I've also got some special trait or something. Who cares?
I'm not Colonel Perjury. I sometimes tell the truth.
That's the biggest lie I ever heard. I'm Brigadier General Hyperbole. I do nothing but exaggerate. I'm the leader of our gang, which makes me omnipotent.
We're going to hold up the corner shop. We'll make off with trillions of dollars!
*sigh* Do we have to?

Ye of short memory. I still recall drawing you in the first round, and you pulling out probably your best work to date. I won, but just barely.

I seem to bring out the best in my opposition in these things. xpac is likely to post a gem.

Hmmm

KKP v LadyJ

Thats like pouring petrol on a bonfire.

Heres hoping we can keep a level head while putting in our strips.
It would be terrible if we started ripping on each other to score points.

Wouldnt it.

I really just don't understand this. Why are you trying to antagonize me with offensive accusations? It's never been my practice to do that, and it's not something I'd even consider.

I was not being sarcastic, fuzzyman. I'm truly perplexed. KKP suggests there's some kind of war between us (if one exists, I'm completely unaware of it), and further suggests that I'm the kind of person to resort to mud-slinging to win comic contests.

I'm not trying to dampen anyone's light-hearted fun, skagg. I'm just wondering why he felt the need to say what he did.
