COMIC BOOK IDOL:
COMIC book industry
website Comic Book Resources used to run a Comic Book Idol
competition, in which amateur artists could vie for the crown by
producing comic book pages based on submitted scripts.
Like the Idol format, each week there would be a different
round, and entrants would progress based on the votes of the readers.
In 2007, the third round featured a script by Legion artist Francis

Page 4: Splash. The bigger reveal: she is accompanied
by various members of the Legion. Put in who you want. I'm leaving

the machines and looking ready for a big fight.
