As it'll be the tenth issue of that Temple APA thingummy, and the Roman numeral for ten is "X", it of course means there should be a '50s style sci-fi B movie-style cover for the next issue. Yes, it does.

You know the kind of thing... freaky alien robot mutants carrying off fainted ladies in swimming costumes and stuff like that.

You can do the logo and text for it yerself, (or get a responsible adult to do it for you), but it should contain the following words, (except for the bits in brackets)...

"TEMPLE APA" (that's the title)

"ISSUE X" (in the style of an old movie poster "CERTIFICATE X")

"WARNING! MATURE CONTENT!"

"A Digital Comics Showcase."

...and you can include some other cliched tagline thingy like "FROM THE DEPTHS OF SPACE IT CAME..." or somesuch, if you want.

Deadline's Jan 29th, (but we could probably stretch to a few days later).

I'm drawing a comic strip at present, but should be able to fit this cover in around the 20th of this month if you want me to have a crack at it?

Sounds great.  I'm interested.  Is there any pay involved?
Is this going to be printed?

Nope and nope. The Temple APA* comics are free downloadable pdf files.

I'll let you know.

Okay, MIK. I want to get hundreds of pages of all kinds of comic strip projects this year - anything, any subject, to add to my portfolio. Writing, drawing, letting, colouring, script-doctoring - the lot. And, just as importantly, to show I produce all this stuff on time.
