and are mooting the idea of a national 24 hour comics drawing sesh like it’s a new thing. Don’t they know Malvern Stars were doing this on a regular basis in the late nineties?

It was almost-monthly, often near the full moon. There was usually at least one group migration to 7-11 during the experience. Usually about half the group would crash out. Managed to last through them all so far.

One of our alterations to the original McCloudian idea was to not set a page limit. And jam strips became a regular part of the agenda. Some great moments: Kieran Mangan quietly drawing 24 pages in 18 hours, putting his pen down and retiring to bed like it was something he did every day. Q-Ray drafting the strip that would become the lil’ chix.Shags doing a whole issue of Geek Overload. The mysterious appearance of Tung (Dex Comic) who has not been seen again to this day.

Hmm….October 12. I may be as wrinkled as Nick Nolte’s balls, but I’ve still got my stamina. If any of the old school wanna throw down, I’m definitely in. Like Athonk, I’ll scan and send.
