Local artists battle it out


duel to the death!We're issuing the ultimate challenge to Oklahoma comic creators ... we'll give you 20 minutes. Kill off a character right before our very eyes!


Artists will be completing a 4-panel story live at Speeding Bullet, starting at 5 p.m. this Saturday. 


Official Death Rules: Artists will have 20 minutes to sketch, pencil, color (whatever they wish to do!) a 4-panel story in our store. They must kill off a character (original or otherwise) in the strip. Artists may enter the contest with concepts or thumbnails, but all art included in the final product must be completed during the 20-minute competition. Artists will bring their own paper and supplies. The winner of our duel will be determined based on stunning use of creativity, humor, and artistic talent under pressure. Tragic irony is also a plus!  

After the Duel, fans will be able to get comics signed and talk to these local creators about their upcoming work.


For more information, see the facebook event page here
