Although I have yet to wheedle the name under which he's participating out of him, Zack[Wiki] said last night that he's spending time playing at enterVOID.com. The concept: You draw up a (comic art/graphic novel) character, with a few poses (win, loss), a two-page introductory story, a design sheet, a bio, and so forth. Others, with similar characters, then challenge your character, you have a few weeks to draw up a minimum number of pages telling the story of a battle between your character and your challenger (your challenger does likewise), and both tales are offered up for vote by the community.

In browsing a few battles, it's clear that while there's room for classic comic book style combat, there's also no reason that you couldn't have, say, a grade schooler who wins by embarassing opponents, and who loses similarly. see, for instance, the second set (you have to click through to 'em, those are just thumbnails) of this battle.

Strange. The battle link redirects to this deviantART page.

Dan, your "this battle" link just goes to someone's deviantArt profile page. (deviantArt is wonderful in itself, but I suspect you meant to link to something else?) This looks like something someone in my household will likely grab onto once I show it to him....

Ahh. Fixed. Thanks.

Kind of weird that for both of you it went to DeviantArt. I'd missed a period (no, I'm not pregnant), like this: http://entervoidcom/arena.php?bid=1410, and on my machines it gave me a straight error when I tried to go there.
