4596OT: Discussion about Comic Book Fanfic Awards
- Oct 29, 2002As some of you know, the comic book fanfiction community centered
around the mailing list OTL (outsidethelines@...) has a yearly
contest for fanfic awards. Last year, the X-Men Movieverse was made
eligible. Because it got squeezed in at the last second, there was a
lot of controversy from Movieverse fans, as well as fans of things
that are not X-Men in the first place, as to how it was being done.
I urge any and all who would like to see Movieverse included as a
real part of the CBFFAs, and not an afterthought, to come to the
discussion at http://www.b2g4.com/boards/board.cgi?&user=cbffa and
make your voice heard.
Anyone who is also on a Smallville list, X-Men Evolution list, or any
other tv/movie adaptation of characters that first appeared in
comics, please pass the information on. I personally would very much
like to see the CBFFAs be inclusive of many communities of fans who
like something that started in comic books.
