This is just a friendly reminder to let everyone interested in our Make-Your-Own-Crossover-Comic Contest to send in their scripts by Friday. After that, I’ll be choosing a winner and deciding whether or not to make the next contest all-inclusive (meaning CCA members can participate) or if I’ll put it off a little longer. We’ve only gotten two scripts so far but both of them are much better than the ones we had at this time in the last contest… but then again, the best entries didn’t come in until the last minute, either.

Also, this probably doesn’t come as a huge surprise to anybody who’s been keeping tabs on the site, but since Ash has been too swamped with work to contribute much to the site (and since ccacomics.com’s domain is up for renewal and he’s tight on cash), I’m going to be re-taking the reins as CCA Commander-in-Chief. This means that in a couple of months we’ll probably have a whole new layout (again). I’ll need some time to figure out how I want to work it.

Three weeks ago, David Bircham sent me the grayscale version of the comic and asked me if I wanted to wait for him to color it or to stop it at monochrome. I asked him to go ahead and finish coloring it like we had originally planned, and I’m glad I did.

David sent me the finished version of the winner’s comic today. If this isn’t the coolest thing to happen to Kikouken.com and the Crossover Comic Archive, it definitely makes the Top 3. To view it, click here.

The artwork kicks ass, and he did an especially great job with Chun-Li’s colors. The fight has a nice load of action, but without a doubt the highlight of the comic is when David uses his usually dark, detailed, and serious art style to depict the sillier moments of the comic. I can’t wait to see what we get for the next one. David will contact me in a few days when he’s ready to begin preparations for the next contest. Get those notepads warmed up, folks!

Update – Mar 22: Geez people! Try and tell me when I make a bad link to a contest page ><. Oh and BTW, it’s fixed.

I’m sure you recently have looked at the weekly comic button and realized it hasn’t been touched in a while. Well there’s a reason for that. In the next week or two it will be taken down and replaced with monthly contest buttons. It will list the details of our new monthly contest and an archive of all entries and winning comics from the previous month. Pretty cool, huh?

Now onto the details of this comic contest, pretty much the forum thread in the message board says it pretty well but if you want the official page take a look at this link for the official lowdown. To be honest, I’m not really in the loop in this contest bit since David contacts Gilgamesh so if you have any questions on any ambiguous rules or questions, direct them to Gilgamesh.

While the official contest page is still without some zest in it, it’s all I’ll putting up for right now until we get a couple entries so we can redo the format so we can post all the entries strait onto the contest page, similar to the previous fan art contest we had for the CCA RPG (and YES, all the scripting is done for the demo, we just need to iron out some “he said/she said” details that got overlooked before we do a bit of testing).

Everyone here at the CCA is very giddy about seeing what everyone else can cook up, I mean it’s not every day you can get your own comic made for you by a professional like David Bircham is it? We’re gonna be spreading the word as much as we can and encourage everyone who comes to the page to also tell anyone who might be interested. Hopefully this will mean great things for the CCA and Kikouken.com in the near future.

Hello, boys and girls. It’s your old pal Gilgamesh here with a very special announcement: I’ve decided to start releasing my comics in weekly segments. As much as it was sweating over every little detail to ensure the highest quality, what it translated to was months without any sign of life from me. So now, I script my comics in advance and just do my best to stick to it.

This means that every Saturday you can come visit my current project and find something new. I generally try to get these done for Friday night but I’ll say Saturday just to be safe. Anyway, my goal is release a new page’s worth of comic material every week for the entire year. I already have two segments from Millenia Vs Kingdom Hearts Chapter 2 ready. In the future I’ll probably work out some fancier, more convenient, and more professional-looking system for this, but right now just suck it up and go see the comic yourself. The second chapter of this comic should take me about into February, at which point I’ll set the stage for the third and final chapter before moving on to another project: Chun-Li Aya & Tifa Vs Final Fantasy X-2.

And yes, I am also working on the CCA RPG. The demo will be ready for beta testing shortly. You heard right, I’m sick of keeping this thing to myself.

Well this post came a bit late. I was aiming to have it up this morning when my rant would actually bug the hell out of anybody visiting this site enough for them to vote but alas. It’s 5PM Pacific time so looks like it’s gonna get cut a bit short tonight.

Since we’re in the political mood right now how’s about a semi-political comic? The script for the comic is so freaking long I have to cut it into two parts so expect part two probably later this week if school work doesn’t get in the way.

Yes, when I posted two months ago telling everybody I was ready to get in the groove of comic making I guess I was being a bit rash. Days after the post the work came falling on me like boulders. And so the site went dead for two months. Also I found a beautiful little program called Macromedia Flash that’ll will be helping me make comics from now on. Problem is I’m still learning to use it so expect a bit of a trickle effect in comics’ quality.

Anyway, today’s the big day! No, not the election. The Perfect Circle CD came out today! Besides, I get to go to class during the juicy part of election night from 7 to 9 PM. Probably the most important election of my lifetime and I get to spend the time reviewing a practice math test that I didn’t do. Oh well.

Anyway, expect part two later this week. And shame on you if you didn’t vote. Don’t give me this “my vote doesn’t count” crap or “it takes too long” bullshit. It took me 10 minutes out of my life to vote. It’s not jury duty. It’s my first presidential election too and I’m in this to win! Who did I vote for? Come on, I’m not white, I respect women, I don’t want to throw away the constitution, and I don’t want to destroy the world… Who do you think I voted for?
