Deepest and darkest of secrets were revealed… Armies were formed…War strategies were discussed... Weapons were up and ready to fire…the air was tense…'Fire' the commander announced and hell broke loose at RACUOCFMF!

But none of the committee knew that the unexpected was expecting us! As this competition led many to think out of the box, to let their souls roam into the unknown, their minds were set loose, creating masterpieces! Incredible comics were brought to life!

Comics combine the depth and imagination of books with the visuals of movies! Simply, Comic books are more than just fun to read. Comics provide an escape into a world of the unknown, with the best storylines…creation of the most iconic characters…assembling of the most eclectic teams…teaching us life principles…and are an opportunity to delve into a different universe altogether!
