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!
