We’ve had 28 of these! From ninjas, to archers, to warrior princesses, from original villains both DC & Marvel , to Mayan epics, marvellous bunnies, horror private investigaters, new G.I Joes, to Vikings and a dozen others (found here http://www.comicvine.com/forums/fan-fic-8/character-creation-contest-fan-fic-edition-winners-1476597/#11 if you want a look at the past)
Enough nostalgia, let’s get to it.
In 1984 a pair of young comic book creators stumble into gold after a casual sketch whilst brainstorming. Taking their tax return they invested the money in themselves to produce their comic which was a parody of the biggest four books of the day. That idea has made more money that has been calculated with animated shows, merchandising, several films including a new due this year, rap songs and comic books.
They are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Cowabunga! But what I want is the Teenage, the Mutant, the Ninja but NO turtle. They don’t live in the sewer. Other creatures live in the sewer.
Your mission if you choose to compete is:
*Create a Teenage Mutant Ninja (insert your thing here) and they'll still be called Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Donatello and/or Raphael
*Do it in under 1000 words because otherwise we get epics that whilst good hurt your eyes if you’ve got 5 entries
PLUS AN ADDED BONUS TO THE WINNER! That’s right, asides from bragging rights about winning, the winner will get an original sketch of their creation by the talented and lovely artist Erik Arreaga (see his site here http://www.phour-nyne-guy.com/)
* Splinter, Shredder, April O'Neal, Casey Jones, The Foot Clan and other elements are useable and still the same dependent on whichever version you wish to use.
* We run on Australian time since I won and I get to set the rules. So at the moment it is the 1st of August 2014 at nearly 3pm. The contest will begin on the 2nd of August at 12.01am and run for 14 days aka two weeks, ending on 16th August at 11.59pm AUSTRALIAN TIME meaning you Americanos it’d be the 15th coz today is still your 31st…gotta love a round planet
Best of luck to all and let’s see if we can have some new entries
