One Continuous Day
of Frenetic Comic Book Creation
Started by Scott McCloud in 1990 as a dare to his friend Steve Bissette (of Swamp Thing fame).
How it all started...
- 24HCD is short for 24 Hour Comic Day, an annual event hosted all around the world for aspiring and seasoned comic book artists.
- Blitz Comics is our honest attempt at taking our failure experiences and turn them into something useful. A repository for Tips, Tricks, and Advice to succeed at 24HCD.
Why Are We Doing This?
We ask ourselves that question every year. We love taking this challenge. Pushing ourselves to the creative limit. Along with thousands of other ambitious artists around the world we go into this with high hopes and strong wills. But sometimes, along the way, we falter. And fail....
Me and my buddy Anthony have attempted 24HCD every year since 2008...both of us failing miserably. Exhausted and without a finished book to show for our efforts.
This year we say "This is the year we finally succeed!"
...without really knowing exactly how to do it.
Idea! Prep Day Boot Camps!
We take a group of artists and guide them how to use the Survival Kit. There are hour long exercises that put you in the mindframe of what a typical 24HCD hour might be like.
'Nother Idea! A Complete Survival Kit!
No one leaves without the Free 24HCD Survival Kit. This thing is packed with years of experience and real time exercises you can do to just get your comic book done! Very little thinking required. In fact, the kit is designed to make everything about 24HCD faster with a higher rate of suceess. Check out our blog post about the Survival Kit.
