I don't know what it would be called, and i don't think it's a tournament of some sort, and relies solely on the ability of someone not flaking out by deadline. This is a spinoff of the 5 minute 'comic jam' events I've gone to (one person draws a comic panel, switches off with the next person in five minutes, etc.)
Basically, all the artists who want in will sign up on a huge list, then be randomized in an order. So the first artist will draw their character of choice in a story, and then after one week, they pass that story along to the next artist, and after that week, to the next, and next, until 1) they reach the last artist in line, or 2) an artist defaults and the comic ends. No artist can discuss their future story idea with the previous artist. There is no wait time for voting; the moment the comic is released, it's the next person's turn to work on it. In the end, I guess it would all be combined to be one huge mess of a story.
It's possible to do a 1-page thing as well. This is different from a collaboration in the way that you cannot discuss your story or ideas with any of the other artists, and you have to wing it the moment you get your story. Comic improv, sorta.
