The GeekERIE’s third annual 24 Hour Comics Day event is almost upon us! We’ll be returning to our wonderful hosts with the wonderful space at Box of Light Studios (in whose honor our graphic this year is a LEGO Mona Lisa) for our day-of-nothing-to-do-except-create-comics the weekend of October 18 and 19.
If you’ve never participated before and want to know what to expect or are just curious about what happens in these 24 hours, here’s what you need to know: participants work individually (but we’re not against teams) to create his or her (or their) own 24-page comic; that’s planning, drawing, inking and lettering (coloring, too, if you’re some sort of wizard or something). Food, drinks and snacks will be provided (though we’re not above donations) as will nap space and wifi (priorities, people!). In essence, we’ll take care of all your needs so that you don’t have to worry about anything except your comic book.
There is no age limit for participants, but if you’re under 18, we’ll need your parents permission for you to stay (a note will be fine), and if you’re under 12, your parents will have to stay with you the whole time you’re there. We don’t expect the younger kids to stay for the full 24 hours. however long they stay and whatever they finish, we will happily put into the annual publication.
Please RSVP to YourHost@TheGeekERIE.org and include your name (obviously) and t-shirt size (which will probably be $10 each).
Thanks and can’t wait to see you there!
