Hybrid, Original, and Non-linear are all recurring events from the second tournament. I used to call Original "short form original," but since it's the only event with blank templates I stopped using the distinction. Hybrid had students make 3 comics, original 5, and non-linear 3. I expanded non-linear this year by request and shrank hybrid.
Like short form pre-drawn, hybrid and original used themes.
1. "It's over 9000!"
2. "One man's magic is another's engineering."
3. "I'm never going to let you down."
Of the three, only Hybrid uses templates with art on them.

Non-linear didn't have themes. Instead, I let the kids decide what to write about.
