This past Saturday was 24 Hour Comics Day and we had a lot of fun here at Chapel Hill Comic! We had 19 different participants with 9 successfully completing the challenge, which is to write and draw a 24-page comic in 24 hours! Here are some images from the event!

Can someone please tell me the next time I’m speaking to another human not to do this?

This is the part where I irritated everyone by taking pictures!

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!
