FEMALE HEROES

COMIC CONCEPT COMPETITION!!

Contest Update 10/29:

Special thanks to our Finalists

*"Giena The Demon Hunter" by Daniel Vergara
*"Tainted" by Dean Kish

We have the votes in early, the competition really came down to Creativity as the deciding factor.

Tainted creatively combines the mental dissorder depression, so common in today's society, with supernatural abilities as a side effect to medication. In Kish's hero Creek Wilden, we find a young girl struggling with depression. Given an experimental drug that helps with her condition but a side effect allows her to see a secret society hiding among us. We are very excited to see how the story grows and what her sixth sense leads her into.

Giena the Demon Slayer by Daniel Vergara was inventive and a refreshing take on the constant struggle between Heaven & Hell. It is interesting to think about the Devil having to perform population control against his own horde of Demons. Giena is the answer to that challenge.

After careful review our team has chosen "Tainted" by Dean Kish as the winner of the competition!

Please take a look at Dean's entry video (our Concept editing system was down so Dean had to submit it separately):

We've had some readers actually contact our tech support page to support a comic concept. In case you had any fans, friends, or family cast their support that way here's some directions on how to let them support your comic concept the correct way on the concept page...

 

You have to click on the image of the concept, then when you look to the bottom right of the concept you will see a buton that reads "support this concept" click that. However, you must create an account to cast your support. Signing up if free and can be done with a Facebook, Gmail account, or username and password
