Bartlesville artist competes for comics contract
It’s the comics version of “American Idol.” And Bartlesville artist Rudy Guara brings his comic, “Children of Bighand,” to the competition this month.
DC Comics, the second-largest publisher of comic books in America, seeks fresh talent via the Web site www.zuda.com. Monthly since December, Zuda has thrown several Web comics into competition with one another, with the winner receiving a contract.
“Getting paid to be on the Zuda Web site is going to be my first professional gig,” Guara said in a telephone interview. Guara is the writer and artist for “Children of Bighand.”Starting this week, “Children of Bighand” is available to read for free at www.zuda.com. The competition runs through May 30. For Guara to win, he must receive more online votes than the other properties. “Children of Bighand” stars BH, Cutie Pie and Cankles, the hybrid children of a giant, intelligent monster ape and a human mother.
“One of them has an extremely large head, another has gigantic arms, and the third has really huge feet – but when they stack up they make one mega-sized ape with unique fighting abilities,” Guara said. This is Guara’s second attempt at submitting to Zuda — his first attempt was rejected, but that just motivated him to try again.To read Guara’s comic, go to zuda.com. To vote for Guara, register at zuda.com and place a vote for “Children of Bighand.”
