Quick post here.
This past weekend was 24 Hour Comics Day.
Here is the long and short of this exciting event: 24 Hour Comic Book Day was started by cartoonist and comic book theorist, Scott McCloud and artist Steve Bissette all the way back in 1990. The two of them, as the legend goes, decided that they were going to challenge themselves by putting together complete (that is at least penciled and inked) 24 page comic books in 24 hours. The idea spread like wild fire and is on par with Free Comic Book Day as the event of the year for comics. I was set to do it this past weekend, but life and the job got in the way. I’ve never done anything like it before. I can barely function on 24 hours of no sleep, let alone attempt to create a comic book, so I was looking forward to seeing what I could do. But even though I was unable to do it, that doesn’t mean that there shouldn’t be coverage of it. So, I’ll let the people who worked hard this past weekend speak for themselves. Here are two links for 24 Hour Comics Day:
I highly recommend these sites and if you are interested, check out the event next year. I’ll be there.
