[QUOTE=eDuke;1878689]@Joie -- what's IFTTT?

IFTTT.com is a site that lets you set up "recipes" where if you have a blog, every time you make a blog post, it makes a twitter post, a facebook post, an Instagram post, reddit, wherever you have an account. One post can go across all of your social accounts.

And do you have a comic-sized, high-resolution ad? Those of us who self publish would (should) be happy to put a DW ad in the back of their books.

More details as they unfold...
Make a Choose Your Own Adventure Comic. Write one comic and give people the chance to start there. Write their own part 2. Once the other parts are done, people can write their own continuations of the new parts, or keep going from what they've already done. One part one that branches off like a tree. Anyone can do whatever they want with it.

if I may chime in on THAT Idea, for anyone that remembers the group projects we did, the first xmen book was set up that way. and while it DID produce some neat ideas and concepts, by the end, the story had gone off in all kinds of crazy ways that made it more and more difficult to keep track of and make sense of.

that's why the hellboy format worked, there was a basic concept that everyone needed to adhere to but gave plenty of freedom to do almost whatever they wanted.

so...just saying that the idea, if im understanding correctly, of having a continuing story that people just add whatever they want and then the following guy adds whatever and the next guy adds whatever could potentially turn into a nonsensical mess. SOME structure was/in needed.

my 2 cents.

Right. You're correct, but... you are missing something.

The idea is Choose Your Own Adventure.

The guy in front of me could have written something about Cable rescuing Storm, but what I really want to write, was something a guy four stories earlier wrote. When he introduced Deadpool. As the next guy in line, I can back to any point in the story and tell a branching story.

I'd be down for that. I wasn't around when the Hellboy comic or other projects were made but I think it's great to do something in a similar vein with original stories. My only gripe with that idea was mentioned by Rob. The story may become to convoluted or nonsensical with all of those different creators jumping in. It's like the phrase "too many captains sink the ship". If possible, maybe the continuations should be pitched in advance to everyone who's apart of it before they're written/drawn so everyone's atleast on the same page as to the direction of the story. I don't know, if anyone has a better idea on how to structure this idea please voice your opinion because I think this is a pretty good idea to consider.

right.. but I think my point still stands. choose your own adventure or not, it seems to me like it will go off in all kinds of directions that wont make any sense and a reader might pick it up and go WTF and then set it back down.
that's all im saying.

I am up for self conclusive short stories, 3 to 8 pages long as much.
Something that can be manageable for the authors in a short term.
No trademark, copyrighted, nor famous "big four" characters, please.

All we need is a given genre and a given take on it. Then, start working on it.
Example:
Westerns and Magic.
or Medieval and Horror.
or Superheroes and Mythology.
or Detective and Supernatural.
or War and UFOs. etc. You name it.
With these stories together we can make an anthology that can be published on TBD format
under the DW banner of course.
That's all folks!!

If you think of each chapter as more of a showcase of the writer, artist and letterer, colorist, the overall story doesn't matter. Just the fun of a starting point and going from there. Any "chapter" can be a starting point for any sort of story. The point of DW is to showcase what we can do and who we are. Make something good within those loose limits and you're good to go. Hell, take a chapter, kill the entire universe in panel 1 and go from there. Doesn't matter. It's your chapter, do whatever you want. Those pages are your showcase.

I'm just going to wait and see what you guys come up with as I'm still not a big fan of continuity by branching out as what mentioned here. I'd like to see a story done in one sitting be it a series of episodes and then move on to the next and so forth. I also think the benefit to the team (creator) by selling the stories as e-comics in the future.

I think (myself) that a bunch a short self contained stories are better than a random sprawling epic. Think of all the short stories in Magazines like Heavy Metal.

Maybe a common theme or setting for each bunch.
So writers can get on board with artists and inkers etc.
