On October 2nd and 3rd, cartoonists all over the world will each attempt to create a 24 page comic book in 24 consecutive hours. The goal of 24 Hour Comic Book Day is to show artists just how much work they actually can do in just one day. Each year, the SF Cartoonist Conspiracy works with local comic book shops to provide venues for cartoonists to participate at. The awesome folks at Mission Comics & Art (in San Francisco) and Comic Relief (in Berkeley) have graciously offered limited spaces for artists who would like to work on their own 24 Hour Comics.
