WAGON Webcomic Battle - Join WAGON?

Join the Battle?

Does your comic have Character? Do your Plot Devices have punch?
Maybe it's time you got your game on and joined WAGON Webcomic Battle!
We know that you've got questions, so here's a few answers for some of the most common ones that we get.

  • Q. What is WAGON?
    A. The World Aliance of Geeks Online Network (W.A.G.O.N.) is an organization dedicated to the promotion of independant and small press entertainment sites across the internet.
  • Q. I've got a webcomic! How can I join the battle?
    A. I'm glad you asked! Please contact us and let us know who you are and what your comic is. After we check out your comic, we'll contact you about getting in on the action.
  • Q. Are there any restrictions on content for a webcomic to be considered?
    A. Generally speaking, all participating comics are kept at a WEB-14 level, though there are exceptions on a case-by-case basis. Dispite the content of the comic though, the cards themselves are not allowed to display excessive graphic violence, sexuality, or gore.
  • Q. What about the legal aspect? What rights would I give up?
    A. Absolutely none. Participation in the Card Game is a simple exchange of services: a webcomic artist allows us to use a few peices of artwork to create cards, and in turn we provide advertising for the webcomic. The artist still has full ownership over the artwork created and may use it in any way they see fit. The only restriction to use is in connection to WAGON Webcomic Battle, which owns the rights to the designs of the cards themselves. Using images of your cards for advertising is totally fine though, as long as you also link back to us.
  • Q. Are there any requirements for joining?
    A. We've got a few critera that potential cardgame participants should try and meet:
    1. You must have a decent archive under your belt. This would something like 50 comics, a chapter, six months of consistant updates, etc. The point is visitors have to actually have enough to read and get hooked on your comic.
    2. You can't have an excessively long title for your comic. There is limited space on the cards to list your comic's name, so its going to have to fit.
    3. We prefer to have members own their own domain names, opposed to existing on a long-addressed loctation on the web. What we're going for is a more professional location for your work, one that reflects a sense that you're here to stay on the web.
    4. You must show a record of updating on a consistant basis. Taking hiatus or vacations are fine, but you need to have some semblance of a schedule and show you can stick to it.
    5. You must display some level of artistic ability. We hate to bring it up, but we're printing high-quality cards to be distributed world wide. We have fairly relaxed standards, but if your comic (and/or website) are simple atrocious... well you might need to hold off and practice awhile before joining the game.

      Of course, there are exceptions to these critera, and we will always judge a comic on a case-by-case basis. What it comes down to is if you think your comic is good and you're passionate about making it, we'd be happy to hear from you.
