Comic Book Sheep is here!


As promised, the popular Sheep Game (as seen on Video Game Talk and Politics Talk) has come to Comic Book Talk!

For those of you who have never played before, the rules are simple. Below are 17 questions. Your mission is to send me a list of 17 answers, one for each question. Your goal is to come up with the answer that will be most popular. You will get one point for each person who matches your answer, including yourself.

So if the question is "Name a color in Superman's costume" and you and six other people say "blue," all seven of you would each get seven points. If four people say "red," each of those four people would get four points each. The exception is that unique answers get zero points, so if you say "green" and you are the only one who says so, you will get no points.

Send me your answers by Private Message. To make it easier for me to score, list one answer per line with no answer numbers. There will be a five point penalty if you do not do this.

The assumption is that you will answer these questions solely based on the knowledge in your head -- that is, without using Google, wikipedia, etc., and without thumbing through your longboxes or TPBs. If you need to use something outside your head, you may do so, but for each question for which you do so, you must indicate by putting an asterisk after your answer. For your first asterisked answer, you will be given a 1 point penalty; for your second asterisked answer, you get a two point penalty; a three point penalty for your third, and so on. This will give you an incentive not to use anything outside your head unless you really have to. We're on the honor system here, so I'm trusting you all.

The deadline for entry is 5 PM Pacific Time on Monday, June 22. Results will be announced thereafter. That gives you a week and a half to get your answers in, so no excuses! As Sheepmaster, I've already locked in my own answers.

1. Name a Golden Age character who has appeared regularly in comics at some point during this decade
2. Other than Jack Kirby, name a Golden Age creator
3. Name one of the original members of the Justice League of America
4. Other than Jack Kirby, name an artist associated with Marvel
5. Name a Silver Age Marvel character
6. Name a member of the X-Men
7. Name a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes
8. Name one of Superman's powers
9. Name one of Batman's enemies
10. Name a character with a military rank in his superhero name
11. Name a comic set somewhere other than Earth.
12. Other than Marvel, DC, Image, or Dark Horse, name a company that published comics in the 80s or 90s
13. Name a comic that was published in black and white (black and white reprints don't count)
14. Name a Marvel or DC crossover or annual event that crossed into at least four different titles
15. Name one of the original Image creators (founders)
16. Name a comic (past or present) published under the Vertigo imprint
17. Name a movie based on a comic book

Not too tough. I haven't read superhero comics for a decade, and I could answer most of the questions.

Sent, although I'm not sure how good I'll be at something I haven't closely tracked since I was in 9th grade.

I'm in. Sound like fun. Though I had to take the point penalty on on one of my answers. Already in the hole.

I tried to keep the questions easy, but I'm a long-time comic book nerd so what seems easy to me may seem super-obscure to others. Still, if you know the difference between Marvel and DC and know (roughly) what the Golden Age and Silver Age are, hopefully you can get most of these.

Orangecrush, Bus, and others who have played Sheep before -- what do you think of my solution to the Google/no Google dilemma?

I sent answers, but only because I enjoy following these games more if I'm in them. I had to use google for three answers, so will be six points down right from the get-go.

I actually like it quite a lot. It could help the closet googler's admit our their sins.

I liked the solution. In regular Sheep, Google won't really help because it's not like it will tell you what the most popular answer is. But for Reverse Sheep, a person answering a question like "Name a dead character" would greatly benefit from a wiki page.

Re: Comic Book Sheep is here!

I'll be joining in, even though I haven't read comics regularly in over 10 years. Cross-posting this in the VG forum was a good idea. I didn't even know there was a comic book forum here!
