For this thread you can build a comic universe, using characters from any comic publisher. To not get carried away there will be some rules to this. Along with choosing character you get to pick some writers and artists. Adding small features is acceptable within reason. Example, if you pick a detective, you could have a noir theme, so having a black and white interior may work - that's up to you.

22 comics will be published a month.

Four Street Level comics, Superhero comics, Super Villain comics, Supernatural/Magic comics, and Cosmic comics. Two team comics, Hero and Villain.

You can pick 4 characters from any publisher (DC, Marvel, Image, Dark Horse, Top Cow, Avatar etcetera). You can also pick 6 characters for two sets of teams - heroes and villains. Altogether you'll have 32 characters to pick. When picking 4 of your characters for a specific section you must have at least one male or female character in them. Example when picking for Street Level, if you pick 3 female character you must have a male character. Or if you pick 3 male Superhero character you must have one female character. Remember, you're running a business as well. Covering both gender helps. Same applies to the team, you select 4 male/female characters you must have 2 male/female character.

Writers. Pick 10 writers, one writer will write for two books of any section. Example, one writer writes for Supernatural/Magic and also writers for Street Level. From your 10 writers select two of them to each writer a Superhero Team book and the other to write a Super Villain Team book.

Artists. Since drawing takes longer than writing you pick 2 artists to draw 2 books each, but for the team books you can have an extra artist for hero and for villain. Totalling 12 artists.

Sum up

  • 22 Comics will be published
  • Pick 20 characters of any publisher for 5 sections (Street/Superhero/Villain/Supernatural-Magic/Cosmic) - 4 characters for each section
  • Pick 12 characters for teams, 6 for Heroes and 6 for Villains
  • At least 1 male/female for each section
  • 10 writers - 2 for each solo books and 2 out of the 10 to writer Hero/Villain teams
  • 12 artists - 2 for each solo books and 2 (one each) for the team books

He is awesome. Since you specified that your enjoyment would be for the art, should I take it that you are not a fan of Loeb?

With Loeb, its about the action and less about the story making sense based on history of the characters. Darkseid should destroy Superman. Yet he does't in his work.

I do enjoy his television work though. Teen Wolf.

Quality over quantity son. You know that.

I wanted limitations. It will be like a new company. But they won't have the funds to spread wide. Just to get good talent in.

Any substituting allowed?

Four characters a team is low, can that be changed?
