(with thanks to Matt Badham): Last year, top comic writer Warren Ellis did a thing for people who make comics called Three Panels Open. Literally, a three-panel comic. The only rules were that it had to be legible at a width of 640 pixels, which is the width of the content bar on his official site, and that it had to be three panels long.
He’s now re-lauched the challenge, so perhaps you’d like to do a three-panel comic to be posted on his site. If so, email the image to warrenellisATgmail.com but please include your name and the website and/or twitter account you’d like it to be associated with.
The same rules apply: three panels, and it can’t turn to mud when he runs it at 640px.
The ones Warren likes best will be run on his site betwee 10th – 31st March.
