What is it?

24 Hour Comic Book Day challenge was created by Scott McCloud in 1990. The goal of 24hcbd is to entirely create a 24 page comic within a 24 hour period. The challenge became an annual event in 2004 with hundreds of cartoonists around the world participating. This year the SF Cartoonist Conspiracy is organizing three 24hcbd events in the Bay Area at Mission Comics and Art, Comic Relief, and Noisebridge.

When is it?

The event starts at 11am October 2nd, 2010 and will end at 11am on October 3rd. All artists are asked to arrive at 10am to get situated and familiar with the space.

Where is it?

In the back classroom at Noisebridge (near the kitchen). There are tables, chairs, and nearby outlets for the artists to use.

Who is participating?

We have limited registration to 12 participants at each location. The artists at Noisebridge will be:

  • Clay hartmann
  • Josh Barone
  • Nathan Vargas
  • Anthony Francis
  • Matt DeLight
  • Steven Thornton
  • Tomi Huttula
  • Trista Musco
  • Roger Moore
  • Stephanie Cortes


Since most of the artists at this event will have never been to Noisebridge before, it'd be nice to have some folks help them get settled in and acquainted with the space. I'm sure it'd be nice to have folks check in periodically to see if anyone has any questions or needs help finding anything.

What should artists know

If you've never been to Noisebridge before, it is located on the 3rd floor of 2169 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94110-1219 (see the Getting Here page for travel tips: https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/Getting_Here ). When you arrive at the space the front gate will probably be closed, use the intercom to ask to be buzzed into the space. An elevator with manually-operated doors is available. Artists must clean up after themselves. Try and leave the space as clean as (or cleaner) than how you found it please. Artist's who participate in this event retain ownership of their art. We encourage you to print it, put it online, or do whatever you want to with the finished project. Bring your own supplies. Noisebridge is just providing tables and space for you. I recommend bringing a desktop lamp with you and a power cord if you have one. There are plenty of restaurants nearby. Many don't take cards though, so it's a good idea to have some cash with you. Noisebridge does have dishes and a sink. I encourage you to use re-usable goods while you are there (ie silverware, cups, plates) but be sure to clean up after yourself.
