Below is an extract from the press release:

24-Hour Comics Day (24HCD) is an event held around the world which challenges writers and artists to create a full 24-page comic in 24 consecutive hours. Since this is the first 24HCD in Cape Town, and probably in South Africa, we are going all-out to inspire our participating artists and entertain the audience with animation and graphic novel movies from 5 continents, music and an exhibition with a mix of illustration and comic art. Our cherry on the cake, will be a live-feed with 24HCD in Amsterdam, organised by the ‘sketch battle queen’ Maia Matches.

There will be a small award ceremony held at the end with winners of 1st 2nd and 3rd prizes.

The event will be held at Hoodwinx Creative space- 77 Roodebloem Road in Woodstock from Saturday 1 October at 2pm until Sunday 2 October at 2pm. The event is planned and organised with lots of passion and few resources. Hoodwinx will provide an awesome space, tables and chairs, gallery space and music. Co/Mix will provide artworks, artists, art supplies and movies.
