Hello all

The Comicworld Team would like to wish everyone good luck with their events.

This year we asked our friend-collaborator Manos Lagouvardos to make a homage poster based on fantastic art we all remember... i thought the concept is a perfect fit to the general idea.

24 Hour Comics: Alaska

Fairbanks Alaska is on-board again for the fourth year in a row! 
Press releases are out, fliers and posters up, and reserved a display area at the university to put up pages afterwards. Lots of folks are checking in to the Facebook event page already, so turnout looks to the best yet. 
Once again The Comic Shop is hosting our gig locally, and we are looking forward to another awesome event with many new and returning cartoonists.
Here's linkage to a couple blog posts (here and here) about the 2009 event.
