"IF AQUAMAN Can Get A Series "
Deadline: June 4th, 1998
This contest is not meant as an insult to Aquaman well, okay, not just as an insult to Aquaman but we've chosen this title to demonstrate that most characters can be marketable if presented right. I know that Aquaman has a rich history and culture, but he's still just a guy who commands fish and is pretty ineffectual out of the water. Yet this guy has had comic book after comic book!
Consider Animal Man. Sure, now we know that his series was groundbreaking Morrison weirdness at its best. But at one point, it was just Grant Morrison trying to pitch this unlikely character to an editor who had to think he was nuts.
So here's the challenge:
Entries must be in a digital format such as GIF, JPG or BMP (scan in your drawings if necessary). Photomanipulations are allowed for backgrounds, although doing a background by hand can help your score. All acceptable entries will be shown in the June issue. Have fun!
