24 Hours Comics Day 2009 poster by Cliodhna Lyons

24 Hour Comics Day is an annual event where cartoonists try to create 24 pages of comics in 24 hours. It began as a dare between American cartoonists Scott McCloud and Stephen R. Bissette in 1990, and now takes place in countries all over the world. Dublin has had a 24 Hour Comics Day event since 2006; the first Belfast event took place in 2008.

2010Edit

Andrew Luke independently created a 24 hour comic, Absence, in February 2010.
