Okay most of you know that the New Comics section is sorta my area even though I'm not attached to it. I am leaving for Chicago from Tuesday 6/19 - Tuesday 6/26. That means I'm missing this week's comics.

So the contest is easy. The person that contributes the most to this week's comics gets a stack of comics from me. In closing out my classroom for the school year, I found some pretty nice comics, most from around 1999 or so. Some #1's too. I'll send out at least 30 comics (maybe more).

  • So add any comics from this week. Make sure you put a comment for Cascader or LAMP so they know for sure it's new. We all have the list of this week's comics.

  • Make sure it is a REAL cover scan you upload. No preview images, no watermaked images, no nude images (no title), etc.

  • Add the characters and creators (writer, penciler, inker, etc).

  • Add a summary. You don't have to be as detailed as I am. Just sum it up. If you add any spoilers, make sure you label it at the top of the summary like I do. Just check out the New Comics page if you have questions.

You can try pm'ing me. I will try to get online when I can this week to at least get the previews/news up. You can try pm'ing LAMP or Cascader but keep in mind they may be busy with other areas of the site.

So Wednesday, get to your comic store. You also get points (obviously) for your submissions. Do keep in mind that if someone uploads a comic before you, it could be sitting in the que as you upload the same issue.

Is it judged by the most points earned from the added comics, or just the most comics?

@Buckshot: you know what I'm looking for.

I'll say it's judged by my standards. Points will play a part of it but I don't want one long description that doesn't add much to the overall page.

@everyone: We usually have close to 20 new comics up each week. Obviously there is more than 20 that come out. It won't be judge simply on the number of issues. I would like some sort of description, preferably more than just a sentence or two. Yes, the more you write, the more points you earn but again, look at what is up there already. Use the New Comics page as a guideline.

I've never been a part of the contests, but I've wanted to. I may attempt this.

Just leave a note in this topic when you add stuff and I'll make it sure it ends up in the new comics section. Please make sure to tell me the volume and issue number for the sub you made.

This is a good idea. As soon as you submit an issue, put a post here so that someone else doesn't add the same issue as you. This will save some from "wasting" their time and avoid the possible confusion of a double posting of a single issue if more than one of us are minding the que. Just remember that your submissions are time-stamped so don't try posting here to call "dibs" on something before you get to it. I will also say that once an issue is submitted and if it just has the generic "overview" without an actual description, it is fair game. You can add more. If someone has added a decent description, trying to delete the write-up to add your own won't count. Those go into the que so there's no point taking time to try that.

Okay we're getting some new comics in already. I couldn't hold back myself and added two. But that's all I'll have time for. Keep in mind, writing a summary gives points too. Check out some of my older write-ups for an idea.

It would also be a good idea, as Cascader mentioned to post here as soon as you submit a new issue. That way everyone knows and one of us can search it out in the que. What little time I have on here I will only be looking for new comics in the que (and doing previews). I also think that if something is up, like the two issues I did, you are free to add a longer description if you have that issue. But again, Post it here in case it has to go to the que.

Another reminder, for the publish date, put the date that is written in the comic. Like Marvel and DC comics, most are listed as August for this month. When they get spotlighted in the New Comics page, WE set the release date. The only real exception is Countdown which would be listed under today's date.

Keep 'em coming. It's great seeing stuff that isn't mainly Marvel and DC (most of what I read). There's still a lot more that could be added from this week.

Submitted X-Men Endangered species one-shot.

Edit: For the record I believe that if you don't follow the guidelines and post your sub then it should still be fair game.

Why don't you stop doing that (at least when there are already posts after yours) so we don't have to backtrack through the entire page to find out what is current.

Question: I've been holding off on doing any spoilers because when I write them they're long and detailed so it takes some time. When I get around to them, can I put them over other people's spoilers if mine have more info?

Moderator
#26 Posted by G-Man (31619 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd say yeah within reason. You can add more but as long as it's something that adds to the description. We don't want someone to try to delete what was there and replace it. You wouldn't get the full points anyways because points were added for the original amount of text. If you add more text, you get more points. But we also don't need 22 page descriptions. Use your best judgment.

Also, if you don't put up any spoilers, someone can come and add them to your basic overview. Same goes for the two I added in the beginning.

AND someone added something to Hulk 107 but must have gotten logged out because it's under anonymous.

I would think it would be better to augment rather than copy over. If you haven't written them yet wouldn't it be much better to add to other people's work?

#28 Posted by G-Man (31619 posts) - - Show Bio

I agree. I've had someone replace mine for some reason before. Didn't bother me. I just didn't get what the point was since it only added a couple things.

ASM 541 shows up on if you click on it. So you got the points. Not sure why it's not showing on the main page. maybe caching.

You guys have been doing a great job. I will say that I am surprised that there's still some "big ones" that haven't been added. Maybe I'll have to add them myself next week. I just got to add a write-up for Fables #1! Yeah me! Yes it's from a few years ago but I read the first trade at the airport when our first flight was delayed. Also read the second Young Avengers trade. Good stuff. I'm really diggin' Fables. I have the second trade to read on the way back.
