Chapel Hill Comics is proud to present one of the fine comics created at our third annual 24 Hour Comic Day event on October 18, 2008!

Doctor Rational and Muldoon the Mystic in… FIGHT SCENE
by Eric Knisley

Eric completed the 24 pages of his comic in under 20 hours. For those of you who are interested in the technique of a 24 Hour Cartoonist, he pencilled all the pages first, then went back and inked them. The result was impressive, to say the least! Astute readers may notice that there are only 23 image files, but that’s because pages 12 and 13 are a double page spread! Enjoy!

This is the part where Eric drew so fast you couldn’t see his hand. That’s how you do a 24 Hour Comic, folks!

And here’s where Keith tries desperately not to watch Eric dance. It’s hard to pull your eyes away from the sheer majesty of it, but Keith somehow managed.

And here are a few panels from my comic, Waffles and Strudels in Thanks for the Dismemberies. I only did 14 pages, but they were spectacular, let me tell you. We’ll post full comics from several of the participants later this week, so stay tuned!

This is my comic for 24 Hour Comic Day in 2008. I technically failed the challenge, since I only finished 14 pages, but I was happy with the results, especially since I had been on shift in the store until 7pm and could start until 10 hours after everyone else.

24 HOUR COMICS AT CHAPEL HILL COMICS YO

24-Hour Comics Day is almost here! This year it starts on Saturday, October 18! Chapel Hill Comics is proud to be a 24-Hour Comics Day Host for the third year in a row!

Just in case you’re unfamiliar, 24 Hour Comics Day is an event at which folks attempt to create a 24-page comic book in a 24-hour period. Those are the basic rules; if you’re interested in more specific information, click here to read the rules at Scott McCloud’s website!

If you want to participate, give us a call or come by the store to sign up, and if you want to swing by the store to watch people create comics, we’ll be open Saturday, October, 18, from 10am until midnight. We’ll lock up at midnight, but the creators will continue working in the store all through the night!

If you want to participate: please let us know as soon as possible. If you’re under 18, we’ll need a signature and contact information from a parent! If you have a participation slip out now, please get it back to us soon so we don’t give away your spot! While we have more space at our new location, we do not have an unlimited amount of spaces, and we have a lot of interest this year, so please get in touch with us early. If you have emailed about the event, you will receive a response soon.
