BB Comics is a recurring Power of Veto competition. This competition is famous for featuring comic book covers with houseguests drawn as superheroes. It requires mainly attention to detail while having a physical component to it as well.
One at a time, players must climb a ladder and zip line slowly to view a window with comic books situated behind them. Down below, the players must replicate the comics exactly. There are, however, fake comic books in the pile of comics to choose from, so players have to be careful.
The player who gets all the comic books in the correct spot with the quickest time wins the PoV.
Usually there is a time limit of 35 minutes. If houseguest's time runs out, they are forced to stop and their result equals to this time limit.
The competition first appeared on Big Brother 16. Christine Brecht was the winner and it was her first individual win of the summer. Christine's time was 11 minutes 50 seconds. Nicole Franzel came in second and was 30 seconds behind Christine. Brecht's result is still the fastest after three times this competition was played with Franzel's been the second best. The worst result was also achieved during this appearance of BB Comics when Victoria Rafaeli was not able to finish the task in 35 minutes.
BB Comics returned on Big Brother 17. Eventual winner Steve Moses won this competition claiming his second PoV of the season. Steve's time was 13 minutes 57 seconds. This appearance of the competition had more comic book covers than every other one because Big Brother 17 had more houseguests.
The competition showed up again on Big Brother 18. Nicole Franzel played it for a second time and this time she won. Nicole completed the task in 13 minutes 55 seconds which was more than four minutes better than everybody else that season. James Huling didn't manage to finish the task in time repeating Victoria's failure during Big Brother 16.
