24 HOUR COMIC DAY (this is a thing!)

By JP Simmons


AMERIME MEDIA at its heart is a publishing company. We primarily publish sci-fi fantasy, space operas, paranormal romance, and yes COMIC BOOKS. we have two comic series in production. "Rise To Regent," our vampire comics that accompany the dark fantasy novels, and "The Land Of Blood And Plenty," a comic series about a warrior tribe Africa charged with protecting a very special village. These comics have been in production for a year, and have yet to hit the market 
so you can imagine our surprise to learn that there are magical elves (these people aren't human) who can produce an entire comic book in a day!


According to Wikipedia, a 24-hour comic is a 24-page comic book written, drawn, and completed in 24 hours. Cartoonist (And the leader of the elves, Elron if you will) Scott McCloud came up with the challenge in 1990 as a creative exercise for himself and fellow comics artist Stephen R. Bissette. Beginning in 2004, writer Nat Gertler helped popularize the form by organizing annual 24 Hour Comics Days (usually held in October), which now take place regularly in the United States and many other countries worldwide.



I learned about 24 hour Comic Day by browsing movies on Hulu... I am preparing for NaNoWriMo and I love to watch movies I've seen a thousand times while I make my outlines. It has a documentary, reality tv show type of vibe, and it really sparked my interest. I immediately went to the website http://www.24hourcomicsday.com/ to find out more about this awesomeness. I highly recommend you check out the movie on Hulu and stalk the website at your leisure. Amerime Media is based in Philadelphia and Philly held no 24hourcomicday events this year, but we are sure to host one next year!!!
