For about as long as I have been doing online comics, I have wanted to try my hand at a 24-hour comic (please visit this page if you are unfamiliar with the concept).
I loved the idea of it. I thought the challenge seemed like something I would enjoy. Most of all, it seemed like a sort of "trial of passage" event that every comic artist worth their salt and serious about their craft would eventually have to pass through. Finally, in November of 2003, I found an opportunity to do one.

Heya - I'm Randy. Just thought I'd introduce myself *courtseys*
His comic has been compared to Seinfeld - and he's done a week of "crossover" strips to prove it. John Allison, the creator behind Bobbins and Scary Go Round, hasn't always had it as easy as Seinfeld. Allison ended Bobbins, hosted on KeenSpot, to move to Modern Tales with Scary Go Round.
