Monkey Man Brad Hawkins wrote me to let me know he's doing the 24 Hour deal.
"Just wanted to let you guys know I'm gonna do the 24-Hour Comic challenge this Saturday. (www.24hourcomics.com) From 7am Saturday to 7am Sunday (central) I'll be drawing and posting and blogging about it."
Hawkins will be posting his project at http://www.monkeylaw.org/24.
Brad Hawkinsâ€™ Monkey Law is an excellent example of the kind of genre-hopping that webcomics makes possible. One part social-political commentary, one part funny-monkey stories, Monkey Law is an occasionally awkward marriage of seemingly disparate parts, that delivers a powerful punch.
Brad Hawkin, the creator of Monkey Law, talks to Leah Fitzgerald about his art and politics, and the business of making monkeys homeless.
In 1999, there were a number of webcomics in regular publication, but nothing like the vast number of creators today. It was before Keenspot and Modern Tales, when the webcomic community was a much smaller world. In this smaller universe of webcomics, creators seemed more aware of their fellow peers, more prone to help each other out, and more likely to collaborate with one another. There were crossovers between webcomics, guest art for other webcomics, and on April 1st of 1999, Terrence Marks organized the first Great April Fools' Webcomic Swap, where webcomic creators surprised their readers by swapping webcomics with other creators for a day.

After a mind-numbingly long hiatus of nearly six months and several false starts, Brad Hawkins' Monkey Law has returned to the internet with a Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule and tons of simian fun!
