24 Minute Mini-comic #2 invites contributors

We can now confirm the date for 24 Minute Minicomic #2.

At The Comic Expo
Brighton, Saturday 19th November 2005 all contributors welcome.

All you will need to do is draw for less than half an hour !

Here is the online version of the first one, with cover by Roger Langridge and a host of web comic and small press stars,

Once again we'll have a story written by Mike Carey, similar format to the first one - ie 24 pages scripted in advance with two lines of rhyming couplet each.

Each artist will be given an A4 page with a time of day and two lines of the story. In order to aid story-telling, this time we will try and seat everyone in page order so you'll be sat net to the folks who are drawing the pages before and after yours.

It's free to take part, first 25 people who contact me will take preference, but there's a good chance that we'll need reserves, so if you turn up on the day, you'll get to draw something.

The plan is to find a local photocopy shop so that limited copies of the finished comic will be on sale by the end of the day. The story will then appear on-line and in the next edition of Just 1 Page (due May 2006).

If you missed the last one, you can find out more about the rules, about the first event and about The UK Web & Minicomix Thing where the event took place earlier in 2005.

This is hoped to be an event that in future will be linked with the annual Drawing Power campaign that is being waged during October, AND with annual 24 Hour Comic Day.

Please email me just1page +at+ aol +dot+ com if you are attending the Expo and can join in (even for just half an hour). Actual start time subject to other events on the Expo calendar.

If you know someone who might be interested in taking part, please pass this on.
