Hi Guys,

Love the concept. And, congrats on your placement in those competitions.

Read the first 10. If I may...

Some of your dialogue is "on the nose", and as this is a comedy, shouldn't Shenanigan have some catchphrases? For example:

The Goon stands in front of him, threatening.

SHENANIGAN - Do you want a wing?

Shenanigan gives him an uppercut...

SHENANIGAN - Or do you like the leg?

...a karate side-kick. Sending the Goon flying.

This can really stretch (rim shot) our understanding your rubber chicken hero. The comedy, of course, but it would also show that he has confidence, is skilled, and has been doing this for a while.

As well, consider moving his creation flashback until after the Inciting Incident, somewhere after page 10. Spend some more time on introducing us to Shenanigan in his present day, current circumstances that we can understand what he has to lose when his world gets shaken up....on page 10.

Hope that helps. Keep at it.
