Is there anything better than a contest? This time Mr. Hernandez is taking a completely new approach. Taking advantage of the newest technology combined with an interestingÂ experimentÂ we’ve got a twitter contest! Now I’ve been one of those people who has had twitter since the beginning but never took advantage of it. But I can imagine that if just one person picks up on my Rampage tweet news of this contest can spread like wildfire. I like it! Here’s the announcement from the host site:
Nearly any art is worth entering a free contest to win, especially when that art is original work and includes a signed print of that same work. And when it’s presented by the fellas behind Snowflakes (namely, Chris Jones, Zach Weiner, and James Ashby)? Well then it’s just a no-brainer. Click here for the details and be as creative with your entry as these guys are with their work!
Beaver & SteveÂ has been around for a few years now and as sporadic as the stories have become, so has the updates. Recently artist and creator James Turner has been troubled with getting guest strips to help him out in this cause, but currently it’s been getting dire.
Instead of leaving Beaver and Steve in the abyss, he’s thrown the gauntlet down to other artists and creators out there for a fantastic competition to contribute to a storyline for the next 4-5 weeks!
The first script is available in which any artist is able to draw and contribute and send to James himself. Each strip is then judged by himself (and probably his girlfriend who tags along to many conventions with James) and chose who will complete the rest of the weeks. The competition ends on May 1st, which means less than a week you’ve got to draw and send over your entry.
You can do whatever you wish with it, be inventive but entirely be Beaver & Steve. If you think you have what it takes, not only to be helping out fellow artist James Turner but also winning yourself a fabulous prize of the two Beaver & Steve books available signed and personalised, then visit Beaver & Steve’s website for more information and happy drawing!
The time has come for another run at perhaps the best contest in webcomics.
Bomb Shelter Comics has started their annual Webcomic Idol, with the start of submissions having been Tuesday September 25th. Submit your comic and fill out the form. Deadline for submissions is October 14th at 11:59pm PST. This year’s competition sees the return of DJ Coffman and Xavier Xerxes as judges as well as the new additions of Gary Tyrrell and Wilson Ramos Jr. with a couple more judges who will be revealed later in the competition. After seeing what came out of last year I can only wonder with delight at what new talent is discovered by this year’s competition.
Remember the days, oh say six months ago, when contests were a dime a dozen? Where did that expression come from anyways. When our past contest flopped like a hooked fish it raised concerns that no cares about contests anymore, or perhaps there are too many. Since then the only one I’ve heard about is Platinum Studio’s Comic Book Challenge. Does this mean you have to be a big guy and give away something more then just a couple hundred dollars to get the attention of the web comic community?
Another comic, this time looking at a possible reason for the lack of turn out for our contest. How’d I do? I’m I getting warmer? Are you guys just holding out for a chance to kick one of us in the junk? Is that what you people really want?
This year had a some good entires. Every one of them made me laugh and I thank the four of you who sent them in. They were all very well done and in the spirit of the contest. Without further ado we announce the winner is:

We’re in to the last week of our contest and we need your entries. Don’t wait until the last day and give me a headache putting everything up at once. Also if you’ve been reading Comixpedia you know there’s a change in the prizes. We’re going back to the old trusty random winner. How will this work? First the staff will select the strip they enjoy the most. Then all the other submitters will be placed in big pin where a giant old women will spin them until one drops out. That lucky person will walk with 25% of the overall pot. This means everyone has a chance to win!
We’re moving into our second week of the contest and the prizes just keep coming in. I didn’t make it home to see everything but I did get visual confirmation of at least two books. The third book was added over the weekend while I was at NYCC. So here’s three more print books for you to drool over:
It’s that time of year again. We’re not talking about Single’s Appreciation Day but the annual We Love Web Comics contest. The past two years have been successes and this year promises to be even bigger. What is the WLWC contest? It’s our love letter to the rest of the web comic world. Digital Strips is here to promote and cultivate what is good in the medium and we can think of on better of giving back to you then a contest where the prize if all your print material as the prize. Enough gushing and on with the contest!
