Comics Jam WarTM brings comic book creation into comic shops
On April 1st, 2006, teams of comic book creators will gather in comic book stores across the U.S. and Canada. At noon Eastern time, 9 AM Pacific time, they will all be given a topic for the comic book, and then each team will start work on an all-ages 8 page black-and-white comic book story. Twelve hours later, the drawing stops.
A panel of comics industry professionals will then judge the stories, with cash prizes and publications in a special anthology.
Why? When we announced 24 Hour Comics Day, there were retailers who wanted to be involved but simply couldn't host a 24 hour event. And when we moved 24 Hour Comics Day to the fall for 2006, there were retailers who still wanted something to do in April. So we turned 24 Hour Comics Day (the marathon, non-competitive festival of solo cartooning) on its head and came up with a shorter, team based event. That's Comics Jam War.
