This is a fast-paced game of comics for five (or four, or more if needed) players plus a game master (me). Sign-ups close Monday, and if we don't have enough people, we ain't doin' it.

The rules are simple. Each player draws a four-panel comic strip (three-panel if we have only four players). It does not have to be good. Once this has happened, send it to me in private.

I will erase a panel from each strip, and send what remains to a different player. At this point, all participants must draw a fitting replacement for the missing panel, and send the result back to me. I will then erase another original panel, and the process will repeat until each person's comic strip has been completely redrawn by the other players.

Then I will post the results here, comparing the collaboremakes to the originals, and everybody will recoil in horror at the Frankensteins we have created.

Who will play?

EDIT: Since the inauguration of this thread, we have completed two Comic Replacement Games. We have two (http://www.gamespite.net/talkingtime/showpost.php?p=1022012&postcount=113) brackets (http://www.gamespite.net/talkingtime/showpost.php?p=1022013&postcount=114) for the first game, and just one bracket for the second game (http://www.gamespite.net/talkingtime/showpost.php?p=1140096&postcount=286), which is my personal favorite.

We've got four. I think five is the ideal number, but we can play with more if we get more! But we need to know how many people are in in order to know how many panels each comic should be.

If we get lots of people, I'll split us up into two circles of players, so we don't need to worry about having too many. Frankly I was more concerned about having too few.

If not, I'll play.

It does not have to be good.

That said, it does need to have a certain minimal degree of representationism. If you can't draw a breakfast, don't draw a box labeled "INSERT BREAKFAST HERE." Instead, write a comic that doesn't require you to draw breakfast.

I'm going to divide you into two teams of five. You don't get to know what team you're on.

Everybody draw a four-panel comic and send it to me via forum PM or IRC privmsg. Let's keep a nice quick pace here. There is no deadlines, but if you're the last person to send it in, there's a chance I will publicly shame you.

Now I feel embarrassed at how quickly I slapped together my contribution if some of you taking this long to submit one.

Ditto. I considered working on a second entry that I'd take my time on, to replace my first entry if I finished it before everyone else's submissions were in. It seems I should've done that. Oh well. I believe we're at 6/10 entries in atm.

Hey Bill.

Ask me if I have a comic for you. I DARE YOU.

You are not the last guy, but you should still feel bad about taking this long.

You will have to redeem yourself by drawing many excellent replacement panels.

But Elements... I TOO sent in a Replacement!

Delightful. That's your one and only entry, correct? Then I am sure the man running this show will make the right choice and toss my replacement aside. It was really just a cleaned-up version of one of my rejected first attempts for this game, after all.

Bongo Bill

Argh, fuck! I drew my thingy two or three nights ago, but got busy at work and never scanned it in. Right now it's sitting in my office underneath a pile of work.

I can re-draw the panel and get it uploaded by tomorrow morning though, if you all will accept my sincerest apologies.

I turned mine in last night. Like on the 27th. I was honestly afraid to check this thread because I was sure everybody was already dissing me on my lateness.

You're a gentleman, Loki, and the Comic Replacement Game was a noble sacrifice for the completion of the Return of Talking Time Bros cover art, but I'm afraid I am morally obligated to ridicule you publicly for stalling the third round at this point.

Ahem. In a situation where one normal upstanding citizen would usually assist a helpless senior citizen cross a busy street, Loki would instead flummox them with misguided direction and bamboozle them out of their pocket change and abandon them in front of a motorized carriage.

And I am potentially second done! (or third or fourth, depends on how many others are on the ball and simply didn't post to inform/gloat)

I had to draw this last panel entirely in Gimp though, as I pulled a Percy and dropped my scanner (Apartment is still in disarray). A friend from work is selling me a second-hand one, though, but I didn't want to hold up things so I went for the artificial look.

Which I think looks better than anything I've drawn with pencil, so there's that I guess?

What a mess. My comic was completely changed!

For the record, I contributed to panel 3 in Hito's comic, panel 2 in Elements's comic, panel 1 in Nodal's comic, and panel 4 in Brickroad's comic.

That was... mildly fun but I ain't signing up again. I best leave this to the pros.

Elements
04-09-2011, 05:24 PM
I did Hito-1, Nodal-4, Dizzy-3 and Brickroad-2.

Outstanding. the ones that changed the most delight me the most.

I'm up for another round, though hopefully round 2 will flow with greater speed!

For the record I did the first panel of Loki's, the second panel of Gunther Otter's, the third panel of Deptford's, and the last panel of BEAT's.

I'm baffled at how a Dragon Quest oriented comic turned into all about Robotnik. But that is the madness of the Comic Replacement Game!

I would sign up for the next go, but I got enough on my plate this month with Zaidyer's RPG malarky and stuff, so I'll just be an anxious spectator. Woof.

This was so much fun, I'm in again.

Nodal, what the hell? I'm just happy your comic became something wonderful. I love the joke for the balls one when the last panel is still the bomb-om. Thought the final product is great too. Brickroad's was awesome both before and after the change. The worm one is hilarious. Great job, team! I'm amazed how much the Dragon Quest one changed. When I got it, I thought the thing flying in the background of Deptford's panel was Tails in his plane. Who knew it was supposed to be a bed!??

I'm baffled at how a Dragon Quest oriented comic turned into all about Robotnik. But that is the madness of the Comic Replacement Game!
That was me! I had no idea the comic was about dragon quest because my dragon quest fu is very poor! So I decided that the REAL point of the comic was flying beds, which I decided meant flying devices in general. Dr. Robotnik seemed like the obvious choice.

As long as we're all telling all, I contributed the second Panel on Loki's The First Panel on Spoonybard OL's the Final Panel on Deptford's and the third panel on gunther's. So basically the ones that looked mouse-drawn in MS Paint.

Because that's exactly how I made them.

What- what do you mean?

Loki check the bottom of the last panel in the deptford remixed one.

You guys are crazy and don't understand my genius.

I understand you, man. I get it.

Looking over 'em all some more, my favorite remixed result was the worm one. They're all fun, and a few turned out impressively coherent, but the altered worm one ended up just plain satisfying, with each panel being pleasing on its own (the parachute gag in the second panel is great, and the pilot worm looks strangely adorable all earnestly wrapped up in those strings, and the final panel featured the term 'bearodynamics') while also flowing well together.

The remixed version of mine went strange places, but considering what it was to begin with, that was bound to happen.

I am sleepy tonight (HAD OUR BABY SHOWER TODAY), but I'll get a comic sent in tomorrow.

That time doesn't come until HessianD submits his.

We knew from the beginning that Deptford would be first, and we assumed that HessianD would be last, and that all would be right with this and there would be no shame in it for anyone. If one of those other three guys finishes after HessianD, that's where shame comes in.

Also, mayhaps this idea is awfully fantastic,

But I can't help but wonder what might have been spawned if the first game's team 1 and team 2 had swapped comics after finishing, so that each comic went through two complete cycles of warping before seeing the light of die. Of course, we'd probably still be on the first game if we'd tried it. But I still wonder.

EDIT: Not that I'm suggesting we do it, since the comics have gone public. Moreso, just throwing it out there for perhaps a future game.
