So a friend and fellow student has set up this really cool website idea that basically boils down to competitors battling it out with comics!! Of course this got me super excited and I've registered as one of them! It's this great and exciting plan where each contestant creates a character concept to enter the competition, and then you and your character are matched against other competitors. Once you have your opponent you create a comic about your character defeating the other one, and they do the same against yours. The winner of the match is chosen based on who produces the better comic overall. Once the winner is chosen, you're pushed onward to face off with another until a winner is chosen.

I strongly recommend it to others. Anyone can register as long as you do so before the deadline. However, if you've missed it and the battles have already started, you'll unfortunately have to wait it out until a victor is chosen to be able to join #2 of the event. Also, anyone can vote on what comic they feel deserves to be pushed on into the next round of battles so feel free to check it out!
Anyways, here's my submission for the contest! It's a quick little sketch based off of my friend Ali Henderson. Also, the awesome coloring is done by Max Currie! If you like it, you can see a little more of his work at his website: maxcurriecomic.com !
Prepared to be thrown into a world of sugar, spice and everything
MONSTROUS as I present to you the amazing ALI-KAZAM, the sugar summoning
little bad ass from down the street! Don't be fooled by the petite
facade, or else you'll find yourself being devoured, trampled, or torn
to pieces by ADORABLE. That's right, ADORABLE! Ali-Kazam was introduced
to some special friends by a gypsy after doing the old woman a favor. A
favor that formed a pact and turned our simple little Ali into
ALI-KAZAM! Now that she has the connection in place, she can summon to
her choosing any adorable monstrosity from the strange fluff realm that
took a bad turn and never went back. Her favorite of the bunch, though
she makes sure to give equal attention to all her new friends, is a
massive bunny abomination named BUNNANZA who has a short temper and a
deep attachment to our mini summoner. Make sure to take notice of her
shirt ladies and gentlemen because not only do the words 'come at me
bro' represent her understandable confidence, but those words equal the
key phrase that will inevitably result in your end as her summoning
powers activate! Tread carefully my friends and watch your mouth, this
one doesn't take lightly to disrespect!
So in the words of Ali-Kazam....COME AT ME BRO!
Hope you guys enjoy! I'll be updating with my battle comics along with my class projects. I'll have LOTS to put up now that the quarter is coming to a close, so keep an eye out!
Unfortunately the arena was cancelled due to lack of participation. Hopefully round two will work out better.
