About one-and-a-half years ago at the San Diego Comic Con I met cartoonist and Nickelodeon Magazine comics editor Dave Roman at the Slave Labor Graphics booth. I ended up talking to him for quite a while on each day of the con, and it didn't take too long for the conversation to turn to games. It turns out he's a pretty big gamer as well, so big in fact that he had collaborated with some of his friends to produce an anthology of comics and fan art with the proceeds going towards Child's Play. Life Meter was the name, and he directed me to another booth where I picked up both volumes. Quality and individual taste vary, but overall I liked it a lot, and it's a fun idea.



Anyway, onto the POINT, as given away in the title: Life Meter Vol. 3 is in the works, and they are taking submissions. I promised to spread the word, and anyone who has visited our little Destructoid recently knows that the community has more than its fair share of artistically-inclined gamers. So, if you've got the time and the wherewithal, make something and send it in! The deadline for final art is May 1st.

Some more submission details, reposted from the original:

*************************************************************************************************************************************
Read over our SUBMISSION INFO:
-The book's dimensions will be 6x9 inches. Please feel free to have your art be larger but proportionately in scale.
-Deadline for FINAL ART for Book 3 is May 1st.
-We encourage people to send pitch ideas for feedback before final art.
-Comics are preferred over pinups!
-We will reject stories that are well drawn but poorly lettered or illegible. Web resolution will not be good enough for print, so make sure you read the specs.
-There's no guarantees or promises of what will make it into the book.
-Contributors who are included in the book will get 1 complimentary copy and the ability to buy more at cost.
-Just like the previous, volume, all profits for Life meter go to Child's Play.

It'd be neat to see something in there from someone around here. Good luck!
