The Obscure Comics Character Challenge
First of all, I'd like to thank my co-mod, Livia, who did the coding and handled most of the admin correspondence. Hopefully this year she didn't mislay any stories, so I won't have to retract this post. ;)|
Second, we'd both like to thank Debra Fran Baker and Betty for pinch-hitting this year, and Betty in particular for some admin help early on in the game.
Finally, we'd like to thank all of you for playing. This kind of challenge requires a lot of effort from individual participants, from the suggestion period through the writing of the stories and the making of the art on a tight deadline, and we sincerely hope that the experience was worth it for all of you.
Amazingly, this year, with over thirty signups, we had not a single dropout (the pinch-hitters stepped in to help with some difficult matches). I've never seen that in a challenge of any size before, and my hat is off to you, Obscuranauts.
Up, up, and awaaaaaaay!
