24 Hour Comics Day 2016 in Albuquerque at Twin Suns

24 Hour Comics Day | Saturday, October 1–Sunday, October 2 | noon–noon | Twin Suns Comics and Games | 6301 Riverside Plaza NW Ste L-1 | Albuquerque, NM

7000 BC will again host a 24 Hour Comics Day in Albuquerque — this year at Twin Suns at 6301 Riverside Plaza NW Ste L-1.

24-Hour Comics Day is an annual international celebration of comics creation. On this day, creative folks take on the 24 hour comics challenge: to create a 24 page comic book story, normally months worth of work, in 24 straight hours. All are invited to participate for the complete time, or as much as they are able. Minors are welcome with parental permission.

We’re not requiring pre-registration, but it’s helpful — if you know you’re going to participate, please send an email.

Thank you to our sponsors:
