I recently had a go at creating a comic strip adaptation of a film in six panels for Little White Lies magazine's Kick Ass Creative Brief.
The rules stipulated that the story be in black and white, had to conform to the template of panels provided and must be pretty much coherent to anyone unfamiliar with the film on which it was based.
I went with Planet of The Apes and here it is.

Following the success of the Back From The Depths Hallowscream Special in 2009, we've decided to do it all again this year. That means we're once again looking for contributors. Here's this year's guidelines, (barely altered from last year's guidelines 'cos I'm feeling incredibly lazy)...
Ideal submissions should be horror orientated and must be weird or spooky to make the final cut. We are mainly looking for completed comic strips between 1-7 pages in length. Script submissions should also preferably be around 1-7 psges in length. Eerie illustrations and artwork along with interesting horror/comic articles, scary short stories, petrifying poems or anything just plain creepy will also be considered.
If you're an artist looking to illustrate a script, get in contact and we'll give you details of what might require your skills.
We'll also consider material previously published elsewhere, as long as the contributors own the copyright.
Completed artwork can be either colour or black and white, and should preferably be A4 (21cm x 29.7cm) 300 dpi jpegs.
Submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can join the Creepy Community and upload stuff there if you prefer.
As this is a non-profit, small press publication, contributors will not be paid but they will retain copyright on any material submitted.
Scripts, articles and text submissions : Saturday 24th July
Artwork : Saturday 9th October
Completed strips : Saturday 23rd October.
The finished issue will be available online on October 31st.
