The Challenge has been made. Every day two men battle to transform bad ideas into good comic pitches. How long can this go on?

What is the Slush Pile Challenge?

It started, as so many bad ideas do, in the middle of an e-mail exchange. While at work Mike, from Slective Continuity, and I decided to launch a daily challenge. Each day we would pick a topic and we would have to make a pitch for a comic book idea. A winner each day would be determined based upon difficulty of the challenge, the ability to capture the spirit of the theme, and if we could come up with an idea for a comic that we would actually want to read.

What does the winner get? Well, besides generating a 40 idea slush pile each month, we get bragging rights and the winner of the best idea for each month will be forced to write a full script of the comic at the end.

How is that a prize? Damned if I know, but there it is.

But here's where it gets good. We want you, the readers, at the end of each week to take one of our challenges and run with it yourself. We will award the winner at the end of the weekend.
