Comics Jam War 2006: There’s an Alien in the Comics Shop

Three hundred creators were shown a picture on April 1, 2006, that would be used as the cover for this anthology. From the concept of a startled man dropping some comics and proclaiming there was, indeed, an alien in the comics shop, those creators were then given 12 hours to draw an eight-page, all-ages-appropriate story. Artwise, the winning entries are pretty astonishing. Given the short timespan, eight complete pages is an excellent showing from these talents. The judges’ choices are almost all humorous, with one nice piece of sentimentality that inclines the reader to wish the art had measured up more. An interesting concept, anyway.
