About

Each year I participate in the 24 Hour Comic Day challenge. The goal is to write and draw a 24 page comic in 24 consecutive hours. In previous years I've made books such as "Hair Model, "The Order of the Snail", & "God Hates Dinosaurs". This is my 12th year participating, so I thought I'd do something special.

8 unique mini-comics written & drawn in 24 hours 

These mini-comics are printed on a vintage Risograph machine and hand folded. Each book is 8 pages long and 2 3/4" X 4 1/4" wide. You can buy the full set of 8 comics as one set, or print and fold your own. 

Print and fold your own!

Never made a mini-comic before? I've decided to upload "How To Make A Mini-Comic" for free! This guide is one of the eight mini-comics in the set, but it's something I think everyone should learn how to do. Download it here and share your results online. 

8 different stories & themes

Each comic tells a different story and some of them might get a little weird (keep in mind I was up drawing them for 24 straight hours). Here's what you'll get:

  • "How To Make A Mini Comic" 
  • "Chapel Hill (pop. 909)"
  • "Yo-Yo"
  • "Let's Go To The Colonies"
  • "Tools"
  • "Skateboard Tricks (That I Wish I Knew)"
  • "Akira Abridged"
  • "Cape Day"

Rewards

  • $4 - a downloadable pdf of all eight comics that you can print out and fold at home
  • $13 - I'll ship you the set of all 8 comics. I cut and fold each comic by hand and it takes about 30 minutes to create each full set. The total project should take about 40 hours of work just to assemble, so I'm pricing these as best as I can considering the labor.
  • $32 - This gets you the set of 8 mini-comics, plus 3 full size comics! Includes "Far Away" (my Star Wars inspired comic about a young girl stuck on an alien planet), "Hair Model" (the true story of how I became a hair model), and "The Order of The Snail" (the tale of two friends and a secret society). 
So many minis!

Risograph

Risograph is an old-fashioned printing machine that churns out really cool silk-screened images. Sort of like a cross between a Xerox machine and a silk screen. I'll be printing with Perfectly Acceptable Press out of Chicago. I've already done a small test run with them, and I love it!

Make/100

Make/100 is Kickstarter's annual goal, encouraging creators to make small runs of 100 of whatever they want. I really loved these mini-comics, so it seemed like a great idea to make an extremely small run of them for Make/100. 

 

Risks and challenges

I've done a test run of prints from Perfectly Acceptable and they turned out perfectly acceptable. I'm not worried about printing at all. The real investment is time. Folding and packaging these comics will probably take me a full week of work total (I average 20 comics per hour, so it'll take 40 hours to finish all of these!)
