I want to do this, it sounds really cool. My two characters are Zack and Mike from the hiatus'd comic Button Bashers.

And another one is added. Welcome aboard!

In other news, I just set up the War of the Bands forum. It has a place to discuss the story (which is currently lacking for the most part), a place to discuss/post about characters, and a place for artwork. Link is:
http://www.drunkduck.com/community/?comic_id=27415

I'm almost proud of myself. *sniffles a little*

Oh, and I'll be busy/hectic this summer, so I might not be able to do a whole lot when this thing starts.
I'm thinking of a June or July starting date. Possibly August if things don't go so smoothly.

In order to better come up with a vague, background sort of plot, as well as to figure out who to pair up with who, I'm asking for all interested parties to make their character ready and known (or at least a name and rough bio with picture) by the end of May. Thanks.

Oh, I'm also taking any and all advice/suggestions for this.
I'm surprisingly nervous about such a big project. Hope I do it right.

Up to 2. You only need one.
While two is the most you can have for now, I'll probably allow for more ‘supporting’ characters once things get rolling a bit and the comic is almost started.

drawn lazily, but here.

Martin (age 19) and Chris (age 17)

Martin is the cool guy and Chris is the crazy one. Other than that there's not much character depth.

Cool.


Alright peoples, here's the deal. I'm going to be rather busy this summer, and I'm kind of running out of steam right now, so to make sure things happen and what not, I need some volunteers to help organize/plot/set up the world and rules a little more, as well as team up the participants into bands and set up a schedule.
Okay, so basically I need some people to do all the work. There, I said it.
So, if you'd like to really help get things ready and if you just like organizing and such, please for the love of god help. In closing, pretty please with sugar on top. Thank you.
I'll even call you the Magnificent Awesome Team.

Oh yeah, more stuff:
1. I'll have a list of possible extra background/supporting characters we'll need. I'll make a list of characters we need, and the first one to claim it gets to make that character. I'll let you know, there's going to be a bartender and three waitresses. You can fight over who gets to make those four now. First come first serve. I'll add more later, and I'm open to suggestions.B)
2. Whenever I start matching you up into band buddies, all you have to do is pq me if there's somebody you don't want to work with before hand, and I'll make sure not to team you up, no questions asked.
3. Oh, and after looking at a few DD Zombies and Civil War stuff, I realized something. They got spin off comics. So, if you want to make a spin off comic or whatever their called, feel free…nay, feel encouraged to do so. Just let me and/or…Magnificent Awesome Team? Eh, whoever winds up as the sort of organizers of the project at the time, and we'll link to it.
4. That last part reminds me, I can't make those neat comic banners cause I don't know how…plus I can't draw. So towards start up time if someone could make a WotB banner, that'd be awesome.
Let's see, I covered supporting characters, pq me thing, spin off/related comics, and banners. I think that is everything.

Reading this, it almost seems like I know what I'm doing. Almost.

I'm up for some of the organization work, just tell me where to pick up the slack I suppose. I can come up with a waitress design later on as well.

Actually we're still taking sign ups if you want to make a band character as well.

Great. If you and the rest of MAT(Magnificent Awesome Team) can work and a central story plot for the thing that we can hang up all the character and subplots on, that'd be great. Basically, if you guys can just hammer out and refine the details and add on a bit to everything I've got for the story so far. There's a lot of good debate and suggestions going on for it at the official comic forum (something about judges and a tour guide).

Oh, which reminds me, the list now includes 4 legendary rock stars turned judges (like in American Idol, only really cool and not annoying) to make comments on the bands, and a famous roadie to act as tour guide for everyone. Again, first come first serve.

Oh, almost forgot, the list of background/supporting characters also include law enforcement. One sheriff, one deputy, and an indeterminate number of cops.

Hmmm, I got a few band members from an old comic that I'd like to re-use at some point, trouble is their a four piece, and I suck at having my characters sing, or play guitar, or you know, musicness, I was gonna ask if ye'd mind a few fan type characters, going just to listen to the music.
