Things are ramping up in anticipation with fliers and PSA's put out, posters put up and articles getting written up in the local newspaper.A dozen definite commitments, couple dozen more maybes and many more last-minute random folks will be in attendance so far.Here's a recent blog post about last year's event (including some spiffy linkage to previous media publicity) + preparations for the 2009 event:http://inksnow.blogspot.com/2009/09/24-hour-comics-day-prequel-2009.html
We're doing a 24 hour comics day in Juneau too. Probably just a small handful but we're excited about the event!http://akrobotics.com/2009/09/30/24-hour-comic-day-juneau-2009/
Fairbanks got a nice little write-up in the local paper:http://newsminer.com/news/2009/oct/02/24-hours-crazy-comic-drawing/Plus the community's now pumped up from a couple awesome talks by visiting cartoonist Jorge Cham, creator of Piled Higher & Deeper Comics). Still more folks are emailing, calling and confirming they'll join in this year or at least stop by for a visit.
Six folks successfully completed their 24 pages: out of 17 that started (including the 11 who stuck through all the way to the bleary end!).Lots of visitors + support crew, and many thanks again to The Comic Shop in Fairbanks, Alaska for hosting another awesome event!
Here's a recap of the Fairbanks event + pictures over on the Ink & Snow blog:http://inksnow.blogspot.com/2009/10/24-hour-comics-day-2009recap.html
