Community Project...
 
I think it's time for another one.

The Hellboy one was a HUGE success! There was some talk about another one, but it may have been too soon after the completion of the Hellboy one.

This is just a feeling-out period. Post below your interest. Are you an artist, writer, letterer or a colorist.

I saw this cool piece of art in the artist showcase by a forum member named Eddy Lyle. It was a simple-looking cover image of Mega Man. It got me thinking... What if...? You dropped Mega Man or Mario (or even a Super Hero) into a game where (S)he had to fight a classic video game villain.

Like the last one, you will form a team and create a 3 to 5-page length story around the theme.

Or how about famous literary characters get thrown into video game worlds?
Winnie the Pooh-Grand Theft Auto, Alice-Doom, Conan-Super Mario Brothers, Bilbo Baggins-Street Fighter 2, etc, etc.

I could see some cool ideas coming out of that.

This would finally give me an excuse to draw a Shenmue comic and make it fun, maybe add Bukowski as the literary character :har:

I now wonder how Hank would get along with Lobo...

I'll be in for almost any idea.

jeffchris50 09-18-2019 04:18 PM

Sounds like a cool idea with the literary characters vs. video game characters. I know literary characters left and right, but my knowledge of video game characters is sadly lacking as I have neither the time not $$$ to be a gamer.

Facundo Ezequiel 09-18-2019 06:18 PM

A good way to make the writers shine could be to turn literary characters/books into interesting short comics. How many here are willing to make an adaptation of Finnegans Wake, The Magic Mountain or Under The Volcano? Now there's an interesting challenge (if not too insane)...

paul brian deberry 09-18-2019 06:29 PM

Which literary characters?

I'm sorta in love with the idea of Alice in the Doomverse. It would also be cool to have Tom and Huck raiding tombs.

I did a short version of the story of St. Valentine for an anthology title that Malibu/Aircel put out many, many, many moons ago. It was fun.

I'd do something for this. I like the literary character idea. Would we have a tying thread like we did with Hellboy, or would these each be stand alone?

paul brian deberry 09-19-2019 03:54 PM

I like the idea of a tying thread. It could work really well with Alice and her rabbit hole.

The main theme would have GLaDOS uses portals to toss our hero around video game to video game.

Kay 09-19-2019 04:00 PM

I love this. I could contribute some art.

I'm not a gamer and never have been (the newest console I own is my Super Nintendo from when I was about 14 and I'm 55 now), so I have ZERO idea as to what GLaDOS is/means, but the use of portals to toss the protagonist of the story around hews awfully close to the whole reasoning behind Hellboy's travels from reality to reality. Seems like there should be some other way, some motivating factor or device that would and could bring characters from separate worlds together. Just my two cents worth.....

Glados is essentially an AI construct designed to create puzzles for testing human subjects that has gone insane.

It could be that Glados is running the Matrix. She is testing a human subject that is still connected therein by loading them into various areas of the Matrix that have become corrupted allowing the realities of video games and literature to collide. Of course, that may be too whacky for something like this.

paul brian deberry 09-20-2019 06:35 PM

Not whacky at all.
