Greetings all, and welcome to the First Stripcreator Battle Royal. We will, with the help of sixteen talented, veteran strippers who volunteered their services, determine once and for all, who is the champion of Stripcreator. Vying for that title will be 128 of the characters you know and love on this site, in a single-elimination test of wit and strength, a no-holds-barred cross between Celebrity Deathmatch, Spy vs. Spy, and March Madness. A few of the characters you’re familiar with have been omitted in order to leave that nice round number, but I hope nobody will miss them too much.

The competition proceeds as follows: I've seeded a tournament bracket that will be revealed gradually. Each match between two characters will be assigned to one of the 16 cartoonists, who will be responsible for resolving it in any manner he sees fit, by a single comic, or by a series, as long as one of the characters clearly defeats the other in some way, shape of form.

It should be noted that the authors can assign any identity to each character. The "scientist" can be portrayed as a generic scientist, Dr. Pedantic, or someone else. The “cowboy” can be a generic cowboy, a Cowboy Physicist, or George W. Bush. And so on. It’s up to the strippers, and the strippers alone.

Why is this here in Comic Showcase, and not Comic Competitions? Well, for the cartoonists, this is an exhibition, not a contest. The matches in the first three rounds will be divided evenly and randomly among them (though I’ll probably avoid assigning anyone his own forumuser). The final fifteen matches will be assigned randomly to 15 of the 16 authors; and assuming nobody drops out, the 16th author will be chosen randomly and without stigma. So here we go; we’ll see if form holds true.

We'll begin by giving each stripper one match, together comprising 1/4 of Round 1 -- 2 of the 8 16-character sub-brackets ...

first, your money should be IN pants.

2nd--I checked usatoday.com, and the current line shows Tobor pretty much even money at 4:3, followed closely by Jesus (he's hard to defeat, you know) at 3:2. the asiangirls are dead even at 2:2. Long shots include various gabes at 50:1, jamalia at 100:1, and dil at 1000:1.

4. i don't think it's too late to start a pool

crabby--your setup cracked me up

as for the Battle Royal, it looks like "surprise ending" is kicking the shit out of "well-worn cliche"

or is a surprise ending actually a cliche?

hmmm

And now for a sneaky twist.

If by "twist" you mean "cop-out".

Clown wins.
