So I know this is a bit off the beaten path for uF but I am doing the artwork for a comic submission for the Small Press Idol competition. My partner and I have made it to Round 3 (out of 4 rounds) but we need public support to continue to move forward in the competition.
Let me back up a bit though...
Small Press Idol is an online competition for the independent comic book community. The competition consists of 4 rounds and the final winner wins a lump sum, an action figure based off of their main character, and a publication contract for their comic. Voting for the competition is two fold: first contestants must get two of the three judges to vote Yes on the entrant advancing to the next round. Next contestants must garner enough of a public vote of support to show the book has a significant enough following to warrant it moving forward.
This is where I need you wonderful folks to come in and, hopefully, offer votes of support! My entry, Cohort, has made it through to Round 3 but we desperately need votes of public support. To do so is remarkably simple, all you need to do is join the site's forum (free to use) and then go to our thread and vote that you support it by clicking the appropriate radio button! Voters can vote once per day for as long as the round is open. If I only had 10 people who voted for my team's entry daily that would make a HUGE difference.
Obviously, I don't expect you to vote blindly and if you prefer another title over mine than just don't vote!
Hopefully the wonderful community here at uF will lend my team a hand and help us move on to the final round and into a publication contract! For those of you who feel so inclined you can register with the forum at the following URL and vote, DAILY, for Cohort:
