For Immediate Release – Local artists and comic creators from all around western Pennsylvania will convene forour 5th year on the 24 Hour Comic Challenge. From 12 PM Saturday, Oct 20th to 12 PM Oct 21st. Our mission will be to complete our own, fully realized 24 page comic book in only 24 hours. Impossible, you say! It can be done!
To create a complete 24 page comic book in 24 continuous hours.
That means everything: Story, finished art, lettering, color (if applicable), paste-up, everything. Once pen hits paper, the clock starts ticking. 24 hours later, the pen lifts off the paper, never to descend again. Even proofreading has to occur in the 24 hour period. (Computer-generated comics are fine of course, same principles apply).
No sketches, designs, plot summaries or any other kind of direct preparation can precede the 24 hour period. Indirect preparation such as assembling tools, reference materials, food, music etc. is fine.
This is an international competition, happening simultaneously around the globe.
