Submit Your Ideas For the Behind-The-Scenes Issue!

Next week marks the 150th issue of Ages 25 & Up, so roughly our third year. To mark the event, I'll be making a special behind-the-scenes issue to show how the comic gets made, documenting the process from humble idea to humble .jpeg file. But YOU get to help.

What I'm looking for is a short idea for the comic I'll make for #150, the one whose creative process will be documented in the behind-the-scenes special. The comic would, ideally, but short. But other than, I'm not looking for anything in particular. Here are some rules I'd like if you'd keep in mind, though:

  • Keep the idea simple, please! Remember, I'll have to make the comic and a comic about that comic, so let's aim for a short one.
  • You don't have to submit any dialogue or anything specific. If you just have a vague concept (say, Snake-Eyes and Scarlett having a picnic) send it in!
  • Don't worry about A25U canon. The short comic can exist outside of the A25Universe, so if you'd like a character or vehicle to appear that I've written out, send the idea in anyway!
  • You can include non-Joe characters if you want. Roadblock arm-wrestling Death's Head, yes? Captain America being a stereotypical caricature of a bygone era heavy with wartime insensitivity? No problem!
  • Mood/tone doesn't matter. Make it as serious or silly as you'd like.
  • I don't really have a limit on content, but don't feel bad if I don't choose your idea about Timber going to town on the Baroness' ample hindquarters.
  • Submit a name under which you would like me to credit you. I'll put some flavour of "Original Idea by (your name here)" banner, so let me know how you'd like to be credited.
  • Submit your idea by the morning of Thursday, July 28, 2011. I'd like to have all the ideas received by the time I get up on Thursday. I was going to say "when Wednesday becomes Thursday," but this way gives you more time, time you'd have, anyway!
  • You can send in your ideas a few ways. Post them in the Comments section under this entry, post them in the chat box in the left-hand column, send me an email at 1337W422102 at Gmail dot com, post it on Helix's Facebook page, send me a PM on any forum you know me on or post it in the A25U thread at said forum (should one exist), or contact me telepathically.
  • One entry per person, please!
  • Don't get mad if I don't choose your idea.
  • Please, keep it short!
  • Good luck, have Batman!
That's pretty much all I can think of right now. So, get those ideas in! I look forward to reading them and making one! If you have any questions, let me know and I'll correct/adjust these rules as necessary. And if you'd like to improve your chances by bribing me, my Steam username is 1337W422102 in case you want to gift me a game or three from my extensive wishlist.

Thanks for reading, supporting, participating, and just plain being fantastic. I internet brofist you all!
