What is 24HCBD?
The 24 hour comic challenge is for a cartoonist to completely create a 24 page comics story in 24 straight hours. A “24 hour comic” is any comics story you make while facing the challenge, even if you take more than 24 consecutively-awake hours to make the comic or if you end after 24 hours with a story that’s shorter than 24 pages. For more details on the challenge, click here.
My first time I participated was in 2005 where I met members of the San Francisco cell of Cartoonist Conspiracy and soon joined their ranks. That comic is The Synthetic Owl which you can read HERE.
So now we have less then a month till the 2009 challenge and I am eager to try it again (while I can stay awake that long) and I plan to use the event as an excuse to bone up on my skills which I will post samples of on-line.
Stay tooned to see what happens.
