I used to write for an on-line DC Comics fanzine called Fanzing. Some of my fellow Fanzingers have professional ambitions in the comic-book field, and are participating in a contest called [http://www.dimestoreproductions.com/SPA/Idol/index.asp]Small](http://www.dimestoreproductions.com/index.asp?[url) Press Idol. The winner of this contest will have his/her/their work published in an anthology comic that is published by the contest’s sponsors.
The first three rounds of the contest were about the cover/pin-up art and the series concept. Now, the contest is in its last round, with each participant submitting two pages of art and story.
Any of you Doper comic fans might be interested in the contest; the entries range from funny-animal cartoons to magical fantasy to space opera to super-hero. My friends are named Michael Hutchison and Phil Meadows, and their entry is called “Metro Med”, it’s an ER-like hospital drama set in a super-hero comic world.
If this contest sounds like something you’d like to look over and vote in, please visit the link above. You can see the final-round contestants by clicking the “Round 4 - Grand Finale” link. If you’d like to read their series concepts, click the “Contestants: Round 3” link and then click on the contestant whose entry you’re interested in seeing.
If you develop enough of an interest in the various entries to form your own opinion and vote, by all means vote your preference.
However, if you don’t really care, and you’re just following this e-mail out of Doper-kinship…I’d appreciate your vote for Metro Med, by Michael Hutchison and Phil Meadows.
Thanks…and, I hope you do like what you see there!
