24-Hour Comics Day is an annual international celebration of comics creation. On this day, creative folks take on the 24 hour comics challenge: to create a 24 page comic book story, normally months worth of work, in 24 straight hours. All are invited to participate for the complete time, or as much as they are able. Minors are welcome with parental permission.

We're not requiring pre-registration, but it's helpful — if you know you're going to participate, please send an email.

Follow along with updates on the 24 Hour Comics Day Blog under the 7000 BC tag.
