“A comic book fan’s dream…I was pleased to find out that your score has nothing to do with writing or artistic talent. Rather, the scoring system is through “Fame Points,” which you get earn based on how many times you incorporate your themes and challenges into your panels. It provides for a lot of creativity, and makes for some pretty hilarious moments.”– Beth Elderkin,
