24 HOUR COMICS event at THE GOOD WILL
This is a comics making event for anyone that ever wanted to make a comic and for anyone who ever wanted to try the impossible task of trying to make a complete comic in ONE DAY.

A group of professional comics creators will be on site to try just that. Each of them trying to make a complete 24 page comic in 24 hours.
