The Obscure Comics Character Challenge

Authors' names have been added to the stories on the archive. Authors, you can now reply to fb in the feedback thread without logging out first, if you'd like.

Once again, the admins would like to thank everyone-- writers, fanartists, pinch-hitters and feedback-givers-- for participating this year, and helping to make 2006 Comica Obscura the best Comica Obscura ever!

We would love to hear your comments, feedback and suggestions re: this year's experience, and you can send it to us at comica.obscura@gmail.com. Also, if there are any errors in the story headers, please let me know at that e-mail address so I can fix them.

Finally: if you have a c_o recs post, please let me know where it is so I can add it to the memories in this community.

Thanks again for playing, you guys!

(P.S., if you wrote a Marvel or DC story, consider reposting it in your journal and linking it here, so that the dcfic_index and marvelfic_index people can index it.)

Update from the brilliantest mod ever [Mar. 29th, 2005|02:13 pm]
The Obscure Comics Character Challenge

(Pssssst, harriet_spy, you may wanna take back what you said about me being a great co-mod... Whooo. Okay, this is embarrassing.

So there was a person in the challenge that we thought dropped out, but she e-mailed me today saying that she did send in her story, and in fact, she DID. (Early, actually, which is one of the reasons it slipped past me when I was going through the comica_obscura e-mails.) Anyway, now that it has been brought to my attention, I have added it to the site. I am *so sorry*. I blame my cold medication. ^_^

The story is Vantage. It's about Icon, from Milestone Comics (a DC imprint) and it is for leadensky. I have added a comment for this story in the feedback post, so you can leave feedback for it right here.

Again, I apologize for being a ditz. ^_^ Please read Vantage and leave comments for it.


In other news, I have been collecting comica_obscura recs and posts in the memories of this LJ. If you have a recs or c_o squee post that isn't in the memories, and you'd like it to be, please leave a link in the comments of this post.

Feedback post [Mar. 25th, 2005|09:23 pm]
The Obscure Comics Character Challenge

Feedback post, 4colorheroines style:

As explained in the FAQ, the identities of the authors who wrote the stories will not be revealed until one week from today. However, many people want to give feedback to the authors (especially if they received a story), and of course the authors all want to hear whatever feedback others have to share about the stories they wrote, without having to wait a whole week.

In the comments section below, you'll find each story listed alphabetically. Reply to the comment which has the title of the story you wish to provide feedback for. Please do not click Post Comment rather than responding to the existing comment for the story.

Off-topic comments and misplaced comments on this post may be deleted, because it is as much a tool for authors to find their feedback as for readers to give it.


You may now post feedback!
