WRITING CHALLENGE!

Current Topic:
DC TV

Due Date:
October 30, 2001

For all you procrastinators out there, we've extended the due date for the challenge to October 30. All right, folks, no more whining! Get to work!

Here's the challenge:

After three multi-part challenges, we're ready to take a break from big, epic storylines. Here's your chance to write a self contained story!

The challenge is simple: Mesh together characters from a TV show with comic book characters, and act as if they have always been in the same universe. After the somewhat complicated nature of the Vile Vial challenge, we're keeping this one simple on purpose.

Need an example of what's acceptable? How about teaming up the Unknown Soldier and the cast of Hogan's Heroes? What would the aviators of Airwolf think if they saw Enemy Ace or Balloon Buster flying alongside them? Imagine the Crocodile Hunter's nature program taking a turn for the worse when he encounters Killer Croc. Dr. 13 can team up with the Ghostbusters.

The possibilities are endless! Let your imagination go wild!

Specifics

  • Prose form please. Comic script style won't be rejected, but many people don't like reading them.
  • Do your own editing and spell-check, please.
  • Send your story in HTML if possible. (Fanzing does have a tutorial on HTML which many have found easy to use.) Otherwise, either Word format or Rich Text Format (.rtf) is fine.
  • As always, It Must Not Suck.
  • E-mail it to fanzing@fanzing.com by September 30.
  • The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate for Amazon.com OR a Fanzing t-shirt.
