One of the things I loved to collect were the in-pack comics. I kept the comics long after getting rid of my (first) Atari collection. If anyone has a homebrew idea that would match well with a comic 4 to 8 pages I would be happy to contribute.

You can check out my art specs if you are interested.

I'm not really into Atari homebrewing, but if you're an artist looking to contribute something significant, I've got just three words for you: Swordquest Airworld comic. :)

Only problem is, it would require way more than 4-8 pages...

Haha! The Tod Frye I-ching slant on the story would give me a headache. I would be able to copy George Perez's style pretty close.

I had a short comicbook story idea I started to draft out some 5 years ago for a vcs homebrew game by Spiceware called "Medieval Mayhem". It never got off the ground tho because a boxed game wasn't possible to make a pack-in with. And I was already busy with animating the dragon graphics and designing the label and manual, so there wasn't any time either before it's release.
I just saw your art specs and I do like your style. It looks close to what I did on the label.

I'd keep you in mind to contribute for an 8-page story as I was thinking of revisiting the comic book pack-in idea for a homebrew sequel to MM - if that should ever happen.

Very neat idea. I'm currently working with a few people on a small cart release of my 2600 homebrew Trashmania: Remix.

In fact, I still have the story from the original manual I wrote up for the first Trashmania game I did (however, it differs slightly from Trashmania: Remix):

Spoiler


I'll contact you sometime if we think it's something we want. I myself would love to have a small pack-in comic with my game!
