  2. Rather than the original 200 supporter goal, due to the limited time available, your comic will only need to reach 25 supporters to make it to the semifinals (round 2). Please remember to promote your comic to friends, family, and fans.
  3. Everyone who places an entry for the contest by 11:59 pm EST on June 1st automatically makes it to semifinals. That means everyone who already submitted prior to this update being posted are already qualified for the semifinals.
