A History of DC Comics in 8 Panels (And Other 30 Second Recap Winners)
CA writer Chris Sims recently held his 4th annual 30-second recap contest, where readers at the Invincible Super-Blog were instructed pick a comic book story or arc, and try to sum it up in their own comic in less than 10 panels, with shoddy art both accepted and encouraged.
The full list of entries and winners were posted last night, and they are totally a treat.
