Comic Book Challenge: I'm a semi-finalist

I wasn't planning on going to San Diego, but I've been selected as one of 50 semi-finalists to come pitch at the comic book challenge thing. www.comicbookchallenge.com --

http://yirmumah.net/san-diego-bound-...enge-finalist/

I'll be there Wed night-Fri night if anyone wants to meet up and bullshit.

Congrats! I hope everything goes well for you. I didn't enter this because I thought they might take too many rights away from me. Let us know how you do.

Josh

Congrats, D.J.

I'm a semi-finalist too! I still need to make my travel arrangements (this last-minute travel stuff really sucks, but that's ok) but I think I'll be there Wednesday night through Saturday.

I entered at the very last minute. At first when I saw that people could enter as many times as they wanted, I thought "there's no way they'll pick my pitch with those odds." Guess I was wrong

I entered but was not a finalist. That's awesome guys, good luck.

Josh-you can't ever have rights taken if you never through you hat in the ring, but you might never get published either. I know what you saying, it might not be the best deal, but you have to get in the biz anyway you can if you really believe you have the talent to stick around, then you can start shopping around for the perfect deal after you make a name and get your feet wet.

It's not everyday you get to be in a contest that gets this much publicly, if you successful at it you be around for a while.

Good luck to you guys, I envy you

Very cool.

What's the run down for this again - 50 down to 3 and then the final three is on TV? Is any of this going to be viewable by Comic-Con goers?

I can understand where you're coming from, but that's not me. If I spend time on an idea and I think it is worth publishing then I want to be in full control of the rights. If that means I never get the chance to work for the big wigs or get published by them then so be it.

I think it is great for those of you who have sent your idea and I hope it works out for you. If nothing else, I can see how well it works for you guys and if they do this again next year maybe I'll try.

Josh

Yeah, I'd never sign over something like my YIRMUMAH stuff to anyone-- but I'm all up for developing and selling ideas and concepts. Ninja's gotta eat!

I'm a semi-finalist as well, something I did with Sarge. Glad to know there will be some other DWers there.

JRod - the final 3 will make an appearance on an NBC San Diego show, which will be viewable by anyone with a TV, then public online voting Friday through noon Monday.

You know I'm not too hot on this contest from the entry form, but I wish you all the VERY best! I hope it goes well. And good luck!


(And if you end up needing an attorney, drop me an email. I've got a good one. )

DJ, Dara and Caleb,

Swing by the DW booth (#1430) before things shut down Thursday. We already have some tables set aside for DigWeb dinner that night up the street at Kansas City Barbecue.

Not bad, looks like we have four DW'ers in the running as Mike Colbert made the cut as well.
