BlockTales Current Layout
by RJ of BlockTales

I've been lately putting my plans into motion for a new project. But I need some purebred peer opinion for it to finally come... into motion...

 

Are you happy with BlockTales Current Layout? And by that, I mean the Red/White Colour Scheme, with the Title, Episode Number and Date at the top, finished off with some Third Party Speech Bubbles and the Border.

 

If so, I can start. I call it:

OPERATION: RETCON

Basically, I'm unhappy with the quality of previous strips, so I'm going to go back and redo them all the way up until the latest chapter, possibly changing bad jokes, and most definitely fixing most of that bad photography and the bedroom background.

First BlockTales Caption Contest: Winner
by RJ of BlockTales

Well, the contest was pretty much a failure, with only one entry, so guess who won?

Isaac. Yeah, that guy who can't watch Harry Potter. Anyway, here's his entry:

This is how I expect he would talk to me.

Maybe next time there will be competition to Isaac's throne, who knows?

The BCN Advent Contest
by RJ of BlockTales

Here at BlockTales, we are very supportive of the Brick Comic Network and vice versa. That's why I'm judging in the:

(Click to be transported to the thread)

You don't need many pieces, in fact, there is a 20 piece maximum! It is run from the 1st to the 28th, and the 25 winners will be added to a special BCN Advent Calendar! Oh, and one of the judges is Brickset's Huw!

Now hurry up and enter you little scamps!

You know, it's a pretty good time to be me.

OK, so you know, I posted a guest strip for Dave of Bricks of the Dead. It seemed quite small - another brick comic that has been around a little younger than I have. But I was inspired. I mean, wouldn't some webcomickers love to see their characters. Well, I don't just read Lego Comics, I also read some others like xkcd, Amazing Super Powers, Axe Cop and the reason I posted this strip, The Adventures of Dr McNinja. I mean, guest stripping was fun! I wanted to do more! And what would make a great guest strip that would promise me moderate fame, and has never been lego-fied before? That's right, I made a series of Guest Strips for the Doc, and the Creator loved the idea. He decided to make a Fanart Friday post on his site so he could show of his work, and although he only showed the first of three, the whole thing means a lot to me.
