Today is a breath of fresh air. No 'Where is Kelly' today. It's 'Where are My Writer Pals', Michael Jasper and Niki Smith. They have a seriously cool online comic IN MAPS & LEGENDS, and they're running a pretty sweet contest. So if you love comics, great stories, and awesome art, please check it out! Here's their info:
The first 8 pages of the online comic IN MAPS & LEGENDS is live at DC Comics' Zuda site: http://www.zudacomics.com/node/1540 For the month of November, our comic is part of an "American Idol"-style competition, where readers vote on their favorite comic out of the 10 comics on the site. In addition to voting, you can also help by clicking the stars (five stars is best), and clicking the "Add to Favorites" button as well. Further, you can add a comment in the comments section at the bottom of the page.
And if you're really ambitious, you can add a graphic and a link to the comic to your website, blog, or Facebook page: http://www.zudacomics.com/competition/support (scroll down to get to our graphic). The winner gets a one-year contract with DC Comics to write the next 52 pages of their comic. We're really hoping to make that happen! But it can only happen with your votes, favorites, comments, and stars. So vote away, and tell your friends!
We also have a contest running where a randomly selected person who leaves a comment on the comic's page can get a chance to name one of the villains in our comic: http://michaeljasper.wordpress.com/2009/11/10/comics-comment-contest-name-that-villain/
