Snark Free Corner for 10/29

Welcome to the latest installment of your breath of snark free air!

Enjoy!

COMIC BOOK IDOL 3 UPDATE

Here are the entries from the six finalists for the third round of Comic Book Idol 3!

Check out the Comic Book Idol 3 forum if you want to see the rest of their pages!

I am going to post all their first pages (of their three page assignment). For reference, here is the script by Robert Kirkman (only a Marvel-style plot script, not a full script) for that first page…

Page 1:

Invincible is flying toward us, cool, iconic shot, he’s bursting through clouds, smiling, having a grand old time.

His fun is interrupted as he looks down at the ground, casually at first, then sees something distressing and starts to fly down toward us.

Caio Oliveira
a 28-year-old who is currently unemployed, from Teresina, Piauí, Brazil.

Charles Paul Wilson III
a 31-year-old security guard from Wharton, NJ.

Dan McDaid
a 30-year-old writer and illustrator from London.

Jon Reed
a 28-year-old accountant assistant from Alexandria, VA.

Jose “Joh James” Holder
a 36-year-old storyboard artist from Montreal.

Nicholas Pitarra
a 25-year-old college student and part-time waiter from Houston.

Get ready to vote this Wednesday!

COVER THEME GAME

As always, here is the game. I show three covers. They all have something in common, whether it be a character, a trait all three characters share, locale, creator, SOMEthing. And it isn’t something obvious like “They all have prices!” “They all have logos!” “They all feature a man!” etc.

In addition, please note that you must have some familiarity with comic book history to correctly guess these comics. You cannot guess the connective theme just by looking at the covers solely, you must have some knowledge beyond just the covers.

Good luck! A cool point to the first person to figure it out!

SNARK FREE CHALLENGE

Let’s say Simon Garth, Morbius, Jack Russell and The Living Mummy all formed a superhero team. What would be the best name for their team?

THE COVER GAME

This week’s game is as follows…

Find me a cover featuring Lien Harper, daughter of Roy Harper (Speedy/Arsenal/Red Arrow)…

Floating heads don’t count!

Here is an example (which you can’t use!)….

Remember, only one cover per commenter!

Good luck!
