I've had the privilege to be a part of two of these events back in Puerto Rico and always remember them fondly. A great time was had by all who participated on those occasions, and in that spirit of fun and camaraderie I decided to be a part of it again; with our own unique spin. Since all my comic book creator friends live too far for us to get together for 24 hour day, I decided to doit in way I've never done it before; online!
How is this gonna work you ask? Well, there's a few ways this is going down, for example:
1. Live streaming
2. Vlogs (hourly video blogs)
3. Blogs (hourly written updates)
4. Facebook (event page)
5. Twitter (hourly updates)
6. Tumblr (hourly updates)
I'm sure there are many other ways fans and creators can stay in touch throughout this amazing day/night but real quick, another way fans and creators can interact is by fans asking the creators questions via Twitter or Facebook. I'm sure the creators will not only answer some of your questions but they'll also apreciate them, one because it shows your support and interest in their work and second; it helps them stay awake! Lol! Another way fans can interact with the creators and actually help them in a way is by sharing and reblogging their posts. Keep in mind, this is an excrutiating task that is mostly done for our love of this medium and the apreciation to our fans, so it's a beautiful thing when fans understand this fact and actually promote the creators; it breathes life back into the creators. One quick detail I wanna share with you is that if you're not creators, you don't have to stay with us 24 straight hours, you can just jump into the fray every couple hours or so; just reshare! With that said, save the date on your calendars because you won't wanna miss this! Remember, it starts on Saturday October 3rd at 11:00am and ends on Sunday October 4th at 11:00am. Don't miss it!!! Here's a video from some of the creators who've been a part of 24 Hour Comics Day in previous years. Enjoy!
