24 Hour Comic Book Day San Francisco is TOMORROW! Oct 2-3


Saturday October 2nd is the official date for 24 Hour Comic Book Day. This year, The SF Cartoonist Conspiracy has once again helped organize the event for the 4th year in a row. 34 cartoonists in the Bay area will be drawing at Mission Comics, Comic Relief, and Noisebridge. If you live in the area, you can stop in anytime between 11am Saturday to 11am Sunday and watch us work.

Organizer and SF Cartoonist Conspiracy founder Doc Pop will be also broadcasting his progress:

This will be my 6th 24HCBD project. As in previous years, I’ll be live-streaming my progress (and short bits of recorded updates) on my Ustream channel. As an added challenge, I’m considering creating my entire book with a BIC pen and some white ink. Check out my previous 24hr comics Robots Don’t Know Twitter, Boof!, and Ideas. I’m also printing full color copies of Robots and Boof! which will be available in 3 weeks!

So we hope that you can come out and join us for this exciting challenge.

A printed version of our final mini-comic will be available to participants for $5** each (includes printing and shipping) and will be mailed out in the following two weeks.

5:00 pm STOP

Clean-up and vote on your favorite warm-up drawing. The winner will get a prize of some sort.

** Each artist can get copy(s) of the final Mini-Comic for $5 each; a few extra copies will be available at the bookstore for a full price as our way of helping this wonderful non-profit museum out.
