    The Comic Book Draft is a draft like no other. The first on these boards to be a non-Star Wars Draft, and it still goes strong, this will be the seventh installment. But, this is no ordinary installment. This is the All-Star Draft. What that means, is that the GMs and Judges for this draft are participating because they were invited to participate. That means we should see the highest level of competent drafting, arguing, team constructing, and overall awesomeness.

    Before we go too much further, let?s take a moment to look at the Comic Book Draft Hall of Fame:

    Darth_Deception (Winner of 1st draft)
    SLAVE2 (Winner of 2nd draft)
    Shadow_of_Durron (Winner of 3rd draft)
    BartSimpson-SithLord (Winner of 4th and 5th drafts)
    Zizz (Winner of 6th draft)


    Three of these Hall-of-Fame Members will participate in this draft. And the winner of this draft will receive one week of VIPship, a reserved spot in the next draft, as well as choice of drafting position, and enshrinement in to the ub3r Comic Book Draft Hall-of-Fame! The runner-up in this draft will receive 24 hours of VIPship, and everyone else who loses will be game banned for 24 hours.

    This will differ from most drafts. I?m not going to explain how everything works. If you?re new to drafts, watch and take notes. Go read another thread to figure out how it works if you must. Speaking of those, here?s a lsit:

    Now, to what?s different in this draft:

    1) No Conferences. Everyone will play everyone else round robin. And then we?ll put the top four in the playoffs.
    2) No Power List. You can pick whoever you want, whenever you want.
    3) You?ll be drafting for sixteen rounds. You will start 12 of your selections.
    4) You will get three ?preps? per round.


    Now, we?ve got the rules, so let?s meet the players.

    First, the GMs.

    1. Shadow_of_Durron

    [blockquote]Known as ?shurron? in the draft threads, he is, to put it simply, an icon. He stepped in to commish the first Comic Book Draft, repeated that for the second, before coming on board and winning the third. He?s proven to be an excellent judge, and able to argue just about anything with skill and precision. He?s a veteran in almost every draft, notching wins in the Jedi, Star Fighter, Comic Book, Video Game, and Movie/TV Drafts. Not including Shurron would have been a joke.[/blockquote]

    2. BartSimpson-SithLord

    [blockquote]Known as ?BaSSiL? in the draft threads, he is, to this point, the only two-time winner of this draft. He?s also got experience judging and commishing this draft. He?s proven well versed in Marvel and excellent researcher of DC. He?s also a veteran of the Jedi, Animated, Movie/TV, Average Joe, and Video Game Drafts, but his only wins are in this draft.[/blockquote]

    3. MandaloreYak

    [blockquote]Quite possibly the most knowledgeable participant in Comic Book Draft History to not win one. Known for his sometimes illogical burns, and the jokes that are associated with them, yak has also been instrumental in several characters finally getting their due, such as Despero (remember when he lost to Batman). He?s also a veteran of the Jedi

    3) You can only do a trade involving a future pick once.

    Yay for reading the rules!



    Inty/Tyi does this count as a full rotation for the Comics Draft in the Draft Cycle or will there be another normal one after this? Because it is kinda exclusive as to who gets to take part in this particular one. I thought that was one of the points of putting it on a schedule in the first place, so things like that didn't happen.

    Oh, Inty, you son of a gun, putting me at the top like this.

    I will have a quick glance over the list, even though I am quite certain of my pick.


    Pick in a sec.


    All right, I've always wanted to do this.


    with the #1 pick overall, Return to Mundo Fine takes Toad.












    Wait, no, can I get a reSpawn on that?

    [image=http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee279/_lalo_2007/spawn.jpg]


    Welcome back to the top, big guy.

    Eh, no it's not that, it's just that I don't really like Spawn is all. He is a good pick, just not my style I suppose. I had you pegged at him or X-Man though, so no surprises.

    No? Well I suppose I know who was then, no surprise in him either.

    What does surprise me is you not liking Spawn but still taking him EF, you usually draft from the heart.
