my idea.
simon the mouse has a small toy house,
inside this house lives an even smaller mouse
called simon aswell.
so simon the mouse has a pet mouse named simon whol ives inside
the small toy house.

i dont think so. there are many comics that have no speech or dialogue.
my best guess is , that the best pixel is that which expresses the idea the most with little or no text.

Oooooh. I think I'll enter this one.

But it only has a color limit, does that mean that the size 'any', and animation and transparencies allowed?

Also, having a transparency for a comic... I dunno, only a few people could pull off something like that and make it look good,

Well poop, with just a little over an hour left I don't think I'm going to finish in time.

Oh well, I'll just finish it when I finish it and submit it as a stand-alone.
