10/03/09 - 2009 Lexington 24-Hour Comic Day Challenge

Today is 24-Hour Comic Day. Around the whole country cartoonists are working alone or meeting in groups to create 24 pages in 24 hours. That is writing, penciling, lettering and inking twenty-four pages - with no preliminary work beforehand!
Here are some links to sites and blogs about this years events:
Here in Lexington, the CCG has worked to organize local interest and also was thrilled to find a willing host: Tony Florence, owner of Collectibles, Etc.

Lexington's first official 24-Hour Comic Day challenge started today at 11:00am and will run the full 24 hours until tomorrow, Sunday 10/4/09 at 11:00am. The store will stay open through the whole event - so if you are reading this post before the day is over (even in the middle of the night) go out and visit these brave souls and give them your encouragement. Here's the location:
Collectiblles, Etc.
115 North Locust Hill Drive

Show your suport and buy something while you're there to let them know you appreciate them hosting events like this that help build a community for local comic creators. I would like to thank Tony on behalf of the CCG and all those cartoonists attending todays marathon!
