ADMIN: The suggestion period is now open!

Welcome to this year's Comica Obscura, the fic challenge for obscure comics characters! Today marks the beginning of the suggestion period, where, in the comments to this post, you can suggest characters (from any comic, but not webcomics) that you might want to read or write in this year's challenge. Suggestions are not binding at this point. In fact, we encourage you to suggest characters as widely as possible, because characters will only be offered during signup if they've been suggested.



If in doubt about obscurity (as defined by number of fic appearances), please go ahead and include the character. Since obscurity is, in the end, a somewhat arbitrarily-determined condition, Livia and I are willing to spend the time doing the research ourselves rather than see a character someone really wanted and who would've met the requirement left out because that participant wasn't sure he or she would qualify.

However, before suggesting any character, PLEASE CHECK THE LIST OF 2005 ELIGIBLE CHARACTERS (after the cut-tag). Any character suggested in 2005 does not need to be suggested again. Please save time for us by not suggesting such characters again. Since a character may not necessarily be listed under the book you are expecting, just take a minute to search on this post before making further suggestions.

When you list the character, please include, as applicable, civilian name, code name, and a comic for which he or she is well-known (you don't need to be exhaustive--this is just to help us place the character, in case we don't recognize the name!). For example:

Jelene Anderson, "Adept," STRIKEFORCE: MORITURI

If you're suggesting multiple characters from one comic, though, it's fine to group them together under a single heading if that's easier for you. For example:

TEEN TITANS (CARTOON)
"Slade"
Roy Harper, "Speedy"
"Bumblebee"

At any rate, please use line breaks between characters, so that your admins don't go blind.

Unless otherwise specified, we will assume that you are referring to the comics, rather than the toon, version of a character who appears in both. Therefore, if you're nominating a toon character, please make that clear. (It's possible that either, both, or neither of the versions of such characters may qualify.) Except for the comic vs. toon and the Ultimate Marvel vs. 616-Marvel distinctions, we will not be distinguishing between various "incarnations" of a single character within the mainstream universe, such as pre- and post-Crisis versions, or versions from alternate Earths/Elseworlds. Different people who take on the same character name can still be requested separately. I.e., Phoenix (Jean Grey) and Phoenix II (Rachel Summers) are two completely different people with different histories and you can suggest one or the other, but if you suggest Hal Jordan, that includes Green Lantern, Parallax, the Spectre, and whatever random Earth-2 variant he had, and if you actually request him, you need to be able to accept any of these. (In an ideal world, people would be able to ask for Earth-4 Aquaman, but in order for us to have a realistic chance of actually matching people, we need to keep the requests (and therefore the suggestions) from being too fine-grained. When it's time to make your requests, you can always ask for a specific version of a character in your detail field, though your writer will not be bound by that.)

Also, please do not suggest "any." Suggestions have two purposes: (1) to show us that there's interest in including the character and (2) to give us the list of characters we need to check for obscurity (remember, unlike yuletide, we are making determinations about individual characters, not whole fandoms). We are not going to look up every character who ever appeared in a title when those characters haven't even been specifically suggested. Also, to be perfectly honest, given the obscure nature of some of these comics, we may not even know who everyone included in "any" is! If you have already suggested "any," please modify your suggestion to give specific characters instead.

The suggestion period will be open until Thursday midnight EST. Have at it! And feel free to link to this post! We're still a young, growing challenge, and the more participants we have, the better chance you have of getting a good match.



Please read the FAQ for general information about the challenge (note that the timeline hasn't yet been updated for this year, but will be roughly similar).
