Can you create a complete comic book in only 24 hours? 24 Hour Comic Day is an international celebration of comics creation. Cartoonists around the world take on the challenge of trying to create a 24 page comic story in 24 straight hours. Last year's event included participants in 17 countries. 2007 will mark the first year that Albuquerque will be one of the host cities, and the 4th year for Santa Fe. It's a creative exercise that will test your stamina while teaching you what you're capable of. So bring your papers and pens and join us. Co-sponsored by Harwood Art Center, True Believers Comics and Gallery, and New Mexico's own comics group, 7000 BC. This event is open to all ages (with parental permission for minors) and is free!
