the Road to 24 Hour Comic Book Day Рpart 3 Рhelp me pick some Genr̩

So a suggestions of Zach Cannon on his tips for 24 Hour Comic Book Day was to pick a Genré before the event to make the challenge easier. The idea is to have a starting place, but with room for random fun and experimentation. With this is mind I have some ideas of what I want to do, but as always too many choices.

So, I would like you, my fantastic readers and friends to help me pick some possible Genrés. So comment below on your first and second choice and then I will use the information to help with my 24 Hour Comic.


1) Pirates

2) Old West

3) Superheroes

4) last 60’s/70’s/early 80’s Japanese Superheroes (examples Speed Racer, Gatchaman, Ultraman, Polymer, Goldar , Cashen)

5) 50’s futuristic

6) High Fantasy (like Lord of the Rings, Narnia, etc.)

7) Film Noir

8) Other (explain in your comments)
