Fright Night 8

Is anybody planning on creating Fright Night 8, or should i do it? I made the 'unofficial' number 7, but if anybody has better plans for 8 they could get on with it, however if nobody else is intending to organise number 8 i'll make it myself. If anyone IS going to make number 8 though, can i offer my strips up for it?

i like the idea of remixing

i like the idea of remixing old comics in the archive of the participants. This should be fun. Hopefully i'm not too overworked already, as i'd prefer to not make a half-a$$ed entry if possible. Jon Morris has got a pretty decent gig running over at BOO! which i'm sure you're already aware of...

This is Jon's second year for Boo! - I need to email him to see if we can swap links this year between Boo and Fright Night...

It may be basic to start off with but a functioning Fright Night will be up before tomorrow morning...

I'll post about it on Comixpedia as soon as it's good to go.

Any more news?

Sooo, anyone gonna start number 8 for real, or should i? last year i did it at the "last minute" (well like a day before). Now theres about 4 weeks to go. If one doesnt get organised i'll just make another "page o links" like i did last year. Though i myself am doing a special story which is a crossover of my comics and High Maintenance. With the exception that instead of the characters, the creators will be in it, so me and Mal will be in an obscene rock band who have to fight a swearing ghost XD

ahh

Thank funt for that, i didnt really want to organise it as i'll be at university and wont have the energy XD

 Fright Night is one of the oldest ongoing crossover events, it started in 1999, pre-dating many of todays most famous webcomics and sites!, the first (and best) one was groups of 3-5 comics all getting together and lending 'a character or two' each to a horror-themed crossover story, the best one of which was "Mismatched, Misplaced and Misfortunate too!" which had characters from two of my favorite strips, SSDD and Deathworld. Later FN events had things like various horror stories based in peoples comics, but not nessicarily crossed-over, all organised in one place. Number 6 had a 'start picture' of somebody making a grisly discovery on the seabed, and various artists extrapolated thier own story from that. Number 7, which i made, was just a page of links to peoples halloween comics, as nothing proper got organised (thats why i stepped in, i didnt want it to die!). I'm hoping Number 8 could be a return to the old days, but maybe it wont be...

Sites Saved

I have a lot of the earlier frightnight stuff saved - we had a server crash in 2004 and I never put it all back up. I'll try to do that this year...Â

Fright Night?

Howdy, I am still kinda' new to the whole webcomic community and I don't know what Fright Night is yet. Do any of you guys think that you can fill us newbies in on what it is?

 

From guessing, I would think it's some kind of group storyline thing, sorta' like doing a guest strip, but with storylines. If that's what it is, I would be all for joining in on something like this. I love to do little things like that, and something with that name would be even more fun!   Â

Your sig Line Does't Work

Using xhref and xsrc doesn't work on this site - you'll need to stick with good ol fashioned href and src...Â

Organize it here

Xaviar Xerexes's picture

I have the URL and will probably put it up for some kind of event (I have organized everyone except #1 actually) but if you want to get ideas and organization going in the forums here I will happily get onboard with what people want to do.

First thing is to decide what it will be about - group comics? creator swap? ???Â

Whispered Apologies

How about something like Whispered Apologies? Some art gets made and then randomly sent off to a participating writer to add the words?
