When is the next 24-Hour Comics Day?

As hosts plan their 24HCD event for the upcoming year, this is the first question they ask us! Here's how it works:

ComicsPRO is a trade association for comic book retailers. The organization focuses on providing member benefits which help lower the operating costs of comic book stores as well as providing services to raise the profile of comic books around the world. ComicsPRO provides administration and promotion for the 24-Hour Comics Day event each year.

The next official 24HCD date is announced at the ComicsPRO Annual Membership Meeting which is usually held near the beginning of each calendar year. The next ComicsPRO AMM will be held February 10-13, 2011 in Dallas, Texas.

When the new date is announced by the 24HCD Committee at the Annual Membership Meeting, we will post it here at the blog and on the main 24HCD website.

Registration for the event usually goes live in June or July, and for the past few years the event has been held in the late 3rd quarter or the early 4th quarther of the year.

Thank you for participating in 24-Hour Comics Day or hosting an event. We'll be back in a few months with more information about 24HCD 2011!
