From 2012 to 2016, I’d organized and run annual 24 Hour Comics Day (24HCD) events in Mansfield, Ohio. As 24HCD 2017 approached, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do it again. My previous two 24HCD comics; “Real Estate Secret Agent” and “Made Up Stories” were personal disappointments. Neither had the magic spark of art and narrative that I was hoping for, and neither ended up being complete stories. I didn’t get even close to the goal of drawing 24 pages with those stories, succeeding at drawing only 6 – 9 pages. Regardless, these events were a lot of fun, and artist friends kept asking me if we’d do it again in 2017, so I decided to go ahead with it, and I’m glad that I did.
