The City of Comic Creators Need Your Help!
« on: July 20, 2015, 11:27:46 PM »
Hey everyone!  I know it's been a while since I've been here, but I've been pretty busy on certain projects (not to mention spending 8 hours a day, 6 days a week on my feet doing real-world stuff to pay bills).

While "The City" was gone from us, the City of Comic Creators continued doing stories.  Some of us moved to other "cities" to tell stories, some told stories in 3D renderings, and some managed to keep the spirit of "The City" going thanks to a combination of Titan Icon and demorecording.  (I started with the former and was fortunate to have help getting started with the latter.)

Anyway, one of the projects that Sin Stalker and myself have been doing is issue #2 of "The City's Finest".  It's been several years since the first team-up issue featuring Sin Stalker and the Spectacular Sparky, so it's something of an honor to be able to work with Sin to come up with issue #2, especially since it features the trio of heroes that I started my own comic series with, and it ties in with the events in "The Justice-Knights". 

So we're almost ready to release the issue, but we need your help in picking out one of the most important elements in the comic... the cover.

Sin came up with two covers featuring the "Guardian Exiles" as they were in the issue and also as they currently appear in my comic series "Furia and the Guardians".  Sin likes one cover, while I like the other.

Here are the two covers:

     

What we need you to do is vote on which cover you prefer over at the Battlerock Comics website.

Here's the link:
https://battlerockcomics.wordpress.com/2015/07/18/the-citys-finest-needs-your-help/

The poll will close at 11:59pm EDT on July 27th, and we're looking at the release on July 31st.  So please vote soon.

And be sure to check out all of the other comics the CCC has (including the original City of Heroes series) at the official website: http://mmocomicindex.com

What if we like the dark background of 2 but the less-faded middle & no Vanguard symbol of 1? :p So basically, 1 with the gray interior instead of that horrendous pink?

I like the darker one but feel the purple letters should be white like the first one.

How about a nice picture of cheese instead?
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

I definitely like the second one better. the transparency and the backdrop both make it visually more interesting.

If my understanding is correct, and the front figures represent the team as the look now, with the rear figures representing past costumes, then the second is the obvious choice: the sharper, clearer picture of the present in the foreground, and the past fading into memory.

Actually it's the reverse.  The figures in the front are as they appear in the issue, which is set in the past.  The ones in the rear are as they are today.

Yes, as Battlerock is saying, this issue is a sort of prequel.

Just wanted to put in a quick update.... "The City's Finest" #2 release is being pushed back a few days while we make some last-minute additions.

Soon as it's up, I'll post the announcement in the forum.

They needed more time to work cheese into the storyline.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

 I saw this comic alongside the Justice Knights...great to see such creativity...I would be interested in doing you tube videos and comics.
 I definitely love the 2nd picture best...the one on the right...the one without the purple background. I agree with WolfSoul.
