Vote for Development Hell by Carlos Gabriel Ruiz on Zuda

I know I haven’t posted a new Pretentious Record Store Guy comic in a little while, and for that I apologize, but the truth is that I have been gearing up for Zuda Comics.

What exactly is Zuda Comics? Zuda Comics is D.C. Comics new online webcomic site. They just opened their doors in late October to an international talent contest and I have been busy frantically preparing my submission piece. The winner of the contest gets a 1 year publishing contract with D.C. and Zuda Comics.

Well, I’ve got great news for everyone! One of my comics, Development Hell, has been selected as a Top Ten Finalist in for the Zuda Comics December Competition:

What does this mean? Essentially, the editors at Zuda liked the comic enough to put it in their Top Ten for the month. Now, it’s up to all the people out there to decide which comic would they like to see on a weekly basis and vote for the winner. But voting for their favorite comic isn’t enough to seal the deal; since we are living in a Web 2.0 world (and if you don’t know what that is, then read Development Hell to find out), the comic rankings are based on a few different factors. The first is the vote of the people. Voting for the comic that you think is the best is the fundamental principle at work here. Secondly, you have to rate the comic on a 5 Star system, with 1 Star being a poor rating and 5 Stars being the best. Third, you have to add the comic as one of your favorites. Essentially this is bookmarking the comic for easy viewing at a later date. Lastly, comes the all important Page View factor. Going through all the pages of the comic help increase it’s Page Views. Coming back multiple times to the comic to reread it throughout the competition also help the Page Views Category. All of these things help affect the rank of the comic and go into Zuda’s top secret equation that determines the winner.

With all your help, I can make one of my dreams a reality by having one of my original creations published by D.C. Comics. So if everyone can please take 5 minutes and help me out by creating a profile and voting for Development Hell as they’re favorite comic, I would greatly appreciate it.

To create a profile and vote on Development Hell, simply go to Zuda Comics and get started.

Thanks a bunch!
