Comic Duel 2008 - rounds three and four

My other two entries for the "Comic Duel 2008". Sadly, none of these made much of an impression on the jury. I only got trough the third round because the entry of my opponent wasn't that strong either.

Entry three. The topic was "Stroke of Genius".

This one probably really isn't that good. Translation of the text: "Oh, if only this were a stroke of genius instead of a stroke of lightning," Mr. W thought and passed away.
See the other entries and the jury's comments here.

The topic of the last round was "For a Fistful of Dollars":

Translation: "Darling? Do you love me only because of my personality or also because I'm filthy rich?" - "Personality." - "OK."
I kinda liked that one. The last round was held live on the Comic-Salon Erlangen and the jury didn't really take a lot of time to even read the texts of the finalists, so they were quite quick to kick this one out. Read the report on the finale here.

The Comic-Salon was lots of fun and there's going to be an exhaustive report on it on the JAZAM! blog sometime in the next few days.

JAZAM! vol. 3 - preorder now!

Almost a year has passed since the second volume of the indie comics anthology book JAZAM! came out, and we're currently printing volume three, which will be finished in time for the Comic-Salon Erlangen in two weeks.

The topic this time is "TIME", and I drew (and wrote!) an 8-page story about time bombs. One of the pages can be seen here.

This is the amazing cover by Daniela Uhlig:

Volume 3 is available for pre-ordering now at our website.
We already have plenty of previews on our new blog.

Comic Duel 2008 - rounds one and two

In the tradition of the "Spacken" contests, there's a new comics competition going on, the "Comic Duel 2008." I have participated and already moved on to the third round. These are my first two entries:

Entry one. The topic was "The Evil Eye".

The jury actually kinda liked this one (which is unusual, because they normally don't ever admit to like anything). The other entries from round one.

Round two. Topic: "Sword of Damocles"

The words in the bubble translate to "Do you want to go out with me?" This one wasn't so popular with the jury, but I still managed to make it to the next round. See the other entries from round two.

I will post the next entries when they're finished.
