I did my first 24 Hour comic over the weekend and survived the experience. I remember doing all kinds of all-niters back in college, but there is nothing like working constantly for 24 hours straight, taking 5 or 10 minutes here and there for snacks or bathroom breaks. I'm very pleased all in all to have taken on the challenge. Some of the pages turned out not bad at all, while some sucked donk. The story started out as a simple drama, turned to a mystery/suspense thriller, then a pirate adventure, an island romance, and finally a murder story with a happy ending (kinda). It's Archie meets Popeye meets L&R. Kooky. One of my buddies came over and did one as well, and it was good to have company in the trenches so that I wouldn't throw in the towel. I may print a few of these up just to have. Maybe I'll have it at Mocca--not sure. All in all I'm glad I did it, just so I could join the club of the 24-ers. Here are a couple of sample pages:
