The 24 hour comics challenge is a worldwide event which has run every year since 2004. The basic idea is simple - to create a 24

page comic in the space of 24 hours. For the first weekend of October people all over the globe take part in the challenge. This year we want to encourage and support as many people in Colchester and the surrounding area to take part.

Whether you're a keen artist or you've never picked up a pencil before, this really is for everyone and how you approach the challenge is entirely up to you. The only rule is that your comic is

24 pages long and is created in 24 hours. 


In the words of  the challenge’s originator Scott McCloud, “ Do it!

It's fun, it's exciting, it's mind-altering, it'll teach you all kinds of

cool stuff about yourself and best of all, it's only one day, so

what have you got to lose?”
