    Okay, awesome. I'm doing a lot of solicitations in advanced, so it won't be for another few issues, but I'll keep him in mind. Thanks!

    I was wondering the same thing. All of my solicitations are around 120 to 160 words long, and they're all plot, though the first solicit establishes where the characters are in their lives. How long should a solicit be? I'm in full support of an FAQ page for sure, though.

    kind of the point. it's a semi-satirical title, yet is used to show it can work and is just a title (i.e. to basically tell everyone to get over the Aquaman and Super Friends stigma)

    does that mean Nightwing is a free agent? B/c he was my #1 pick, but had to revert to a backup pick since Nightwing was picked first...

    I was thinking, and I actually started one this morning but got distracted, that mabye we should start a promo thread prior to the release of the solicits, where the plotter answers the questions (faux interview style) similar to the ones that were in the back of all the first issues of all the 52 series. This is sort of a teaser of things to come.

    Yeah Cheesesteak, of you want him, you can use Nightwing, just as long as you and Munkiman (who has him as a member of JLU) make sure your visions are aligned.

    Ok, well I was going to use Nightwing in my Outsiders as team leader. I pretty much used Alfred as a filler pick since he'll be the main communicator to the team. I'd think it fits w/ Munkiman's intention of having Nightwing as just a rotational member of the JLU. But it's up to him.

    Also, updated prior 2nd book pitch to finalize artist (sorry WhiteOro!)

    yeah it's a thread just for those who are making the fake new books. TJKernan should really link the prior threads so it all sort of makes sense... *AHEM*

    I didi the solicitacions with only plot, figuring that we would do like Age of Marvels and make a page like this: http://forums.comicbookresources.com...d.php?t=348557
    every title has a brief summary and the cast members. We could make the FAQ thread the one for our line.

    So, do we prepare a brief description of the title for that occasion?

    Do we post it here or we send it to you?

    Well, who cares.

    Nemesis: Hellbringer
    Charis of Adrastea, Nemesis, one of the most formidable warriors of the Kherubim Empire, has been sent on Earth. It is a secret mission... An hostile secret mission. But Earth is a far more complicated place that she could ever imagine, and her permanence soon becomes a battle for survival!

    The Offensive
    They called it the Belle Époque, a period of scientific discoveries, world peace, and friendship between nations. A Golden Age. What people don’t know, is that forces beyond belief carried a secret battle to maintain this world order. They were humanity last weapon: they were The Offensive.

    I think somebody at DC needs to pay attention and let you write The offensive as a title...I want to read this!

    Hey guys, I just wanted to let you all know that I like the idea for this thread, and I look forward to seeing what you all come up with. Some of the stories being presented are really interesting.

    You propose a title, a new one of your making, one that already exist, one that was in the past. You choose the characters/writer/artist from those who haven't already be picked (writers & artist can be picked two times at max). You become the editor and plotter of said title. Each month, you write a solicitations about the title, you create story arcs. We post them in a specific thread and let people decide what title they want to buy-read, which one was the best.

    Character: you can choose a character from anyone of the DC universes, Wildstorm, Milestone ecc.
    Writers & Artist: you can choose all author who haven't a exclusive contract with MARVEL or others houses. All the DC writers are ok.
