24 Hour Comic Day!

Beware! The biggest, best ever 24 hour comic day kicks off tomorrow, with lots of workshops and minicomics on offer.

What is a 24 hour comic? Well, it is just that: a comic (ideally 24 pages) made in 24 hours. Scott McCloud has bragging rights on its invention. Twenty-four hour comics days now exist all over the world. It's not quite a benchmark of civilisation, but it is as close as you can get to a celebration of comics.

I guess technically you could start at midnight tonight, but if you get lonesome, you might like to join some of Ireland's finest comics creators at the Central Hotel, Dublin, for lots of laughs (and coffee probably.)
