24 Hour Comic Day is Coming This Saturday

24 Hour Comics Day is fast approaching. This Saturday, April 24th, cartoonists all over will face the 24 hour comics challenge. To help cartoonists face this challenge, some comic book stores, educational insitutions, and comics clubs are hosting special 24 Hour Comics Day events. They’ll be providing cartoonists with a space to work, access to food and drink, and camaraderie. While some stores may set the cartoonists up in off-site locations, other stores will have the cartoonists work inside the store itself, so comics fans can gather and watch.

As of today there are 54 event locations in 24 U.S. states and 3 Canadian provinces plus South Korea. How many webtoonists are going to try to go the distance? Post a comment here and we’ll run a list of folks on the site on Saturday.

Wandering webcomic ronin. Created Comixpedia (2002-2005) and ComixTalk (2006-2012; 2016-?). Made a lot of unfinished comics and novels.


  1. I’ll be participating in both the upcoming 24-Hour Comic Day AND Barry Smith’s 24-Hour Webcomic Day the following weekend. Also, I’ll be starting a methamphetamine habit just beforehand.

  2. If I didn’t have a show Saturday night I’d take part.

    Next year.

  3. I will be there and back, complete with links once done.

  4. I’ll be at Jim Hanley’s in NYC. Come visit!
