    Hello I have a question about this fun contest! Are we also allowed to use filters or modifications to our screenshots to give it our own personalized looks? Let's say for example we took a screenshot in the game, and then this picture we put it in photoshop or similar photo editing software, maybe to make it darker or brighter, or to highlight certain objects (aside from adding word balloons).

    Also, how short is "short"? Are we allowed to have maybe a one page comic with multiple panels, or maybe up to a five page comic consisting of anywhere between 1 to 9 panels each to tell a story?

    Thanks in advance :D

    someone already asked one of the questions I was gonna ask (how many panels should it be?) but I have another question. it says to make a scary story... does that mean we can't make a funny comic? or do we need to actually be telling a story in the comic?

    Yup, you are allowed to use filters! Preferably, I would like it to be a one page comic with multiple panels but if a lot of people are requesting more pages to tell a story, I can modify the rules.

    The theme is for Halloween so as long as there is something scary in the comic (failing an enchant?!) I'll allow it.

    What started out as a simple idea and cursed image became something nightmare-worthy in my eyes. This comic really differs depending on how you look at it, either hilarious or scary. I think it was downright terrifying for multiple reasons. It's kinda manga style, but I numbered the panels anyway.

    I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did attempting it!

    This is more comical than horror, I can't do horror to save my life, but it was fun.

    I'm not good with spooky stuff but I tried =w=
    If it looks blurry, just click the image and it will redirect you to the imgur link
    There are some panels with small dialogues so might as well try reading in imgur xD

    read from left to right :3

    There's a suuuuper minor spoiler for G23 p1 in the beginning, but it doesn't really spoil anything.
