Like this gentleman, I entered Shadowline's create a superheroine contest. And like him, I didn't make the top ten. Am I disappointed? Really, there's no reason for me to be. I have no professional experience writing comics, for one thing. For another, my proposal didn't really fit in the superhero(ine) genre, being more of a freaky sci-fi adventure. I sent it in to sort of clear my head for other writing projects, and actually putting the script together would have been daunting. Still, someday, who knows?
The contest is a worthy idea, though. The industry could use more satisfying and well-rounded female characters. So I wish the semi-finalists good luck, and wish the judges the wisdom of Athena.
