24hr comics day at Antenna

24-Hour Comics Day is an annual international celebration of comics creation. On this day, creative folks take on the 24 hour comics challenge: to create a 24 page comic book story, normally months worth of work, in 24 straight hours. Many participants gather at official event sites all over the world including comic book stores, schools, libraries, and art spaces.

Every year since 2004 this event has taken place. The thousands of participants who have created tens of thousands of pages of original art have included the young and the old, people with decades of professional comics creation experience and those who have never tried to draw a panel before, at locations on at least five continents.

This year Antenna is proud to be the New Orleans home for the event SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1st. New Orleans Comic Artist John Slade will be the master of ceremonies with festivities starting at noon and going until noon October 2nd.
