On November 24, 2014, I skipped a night’s sleep, and spent 24 consecutive hours producing 24 pages of comix. This is what’s known as the “24 Hour Comic” Challenge. The title of my tale was “24”, and it was about 24 hours in the life of Jason, when he was 24 years old, with each page representing an hour of that day (including sleep time).

A typical professionally produced 24-page comic book takes the equivalent of about 3 people working full-time for a month. That’s a full-time penciller, a full-time inker, and the rest of the creative team adds up to another person-month. So in that sense, 24 hours is an insanely short period of time.

On the other hand, the idea that it should take 24 hours just to fill 24 pages with (admittedly) rough, scribbly art is equally insane. But somehow… it really is a challenge to get it all done in that amount of time.
