24 Hour Comic Book Day 2013

This morning I finished my second 24 hour comic. Yet again Mission Comics hosted the event, and did a great job.

Page 7 of my 2013 24-hour comic, in which a bear dies. The bear was everybody’s favourite character for some reason, and it is probably not a good sign that s/he died so early on in the book. “Why did you make the bear so cute only to have it die??” It’s just a bear guys, get over it. Plus it was trying to kill the protagonist.

I put a lot more time into writing the story for this one (compared to my 24 hour comic last year), and so I did not have enough time to watercolor it this year. I would still like to watercolor it, so maybe I will still get around to it sometime.

Predictably, I set my comic in a Nordic fairytale landscape. I decided to set it in very early prehistoric Scandinavia. I managed to feature: draug, trolls, a gnome, a nixie, and Ull. I will upload it as soon as I get it scanned.

Being prehistoric, you will see no swords no shields no helms, no nothing metal. Flint knives and spears with leather/fur clothes all around. Errbody has spears. Except for when their spears break, which happens more frequently than you might expect. There is also a carved-bone comb.

I slept for 7 hours as soon as I finished and then I couldn’t sleep any more no matter how much I wanted to, but I am still exhausted from staying up for 24 hours.

  1. Love the comic, hope you get to color it. One idea is to try spending one hour a day, for the next month, watercoloring it.
