March 28, 2008, Square Haven has ceased updates indefinitely. Don't despair, however; the work started here more than ten years ago continues at Videogam.in.

I've already posted this in a couple of places, so sorry If youve seen it already :D

For those who dont know, basically 24 Hour Comic Book day is a yearly challenge in which you have to complete a 24 page Comic Book all by yourself and within the time restriction. I did the challenge last year and decided to try it again this year, with some changes in mind (no text, pencils only, smaller pages and simplified character design) Those changes made it easier for me to do other things, like adding a lot more backgrounds than I did last year.

So, here you go.

Its not a competition, its a challenge. Were all there just to see if we can even DO the damn thing.

Every year there is a compilation book though, they pick their top ten amongst all the entries (which are about 1200) I dont have my hopes up since my style doesnt fit the kind of crowd these books are catered to (the Indy comic type)

Oh yeah, I also got done 4 hours ahead of time :

I got flashbacks from when I was a kid and I used to draw comic books and got blisters on my index finger. Bad times.

Craziness. I can't even fathom doing a 24 page comic in 24 hours or less, though if I don't have to ink it, then I suppose that could work. Last year I was taking a storytelling class, but my dumb ass didn't factor in whether it was geared for cartoonists (comic books) or illustrators (...illustrations). It turned out to be the former. We had 3 comics due in the first semester... first two were 3 pages, and the last was 6. Our interpretation of the Brer Rabbit and Brer Coon story (which I turned them into zombies bound to their corpses by occult magick), a real accident that had occurred (my sister hydroplaning into a brick wall), and a final story we had to pitch ourselves. I had no trouble doing the pencils, but they all had to be inked and photocopied, late assignments = a 0. I spent many nights until 5 in the morning working on that shit, trying to get the inks to look right, trying to add shading with inks, getting angry when I'd accidentally smear it, passing out and waking up 10 minutes before class started with unfinished, or shitty work. Lets just say, I almost had a fucking heart attack every. fucking. Tuesday. I went into that class because the alternative was oil painting and I hate oil paint. I left halfway through the year because I suddenly missed oil painting and loved every minute of it.

So with this in mind, I tip my fucking hat to you, you crazy fuck.
