8 Artists confined to a comic book store, partake in Scott McCloud’s 24 Hour Comic Challenge. Each attempting to write, draw, and complete a 24 page comic, in 24 hours.
With the smell of coffee and doughnuts lingering over a table filled with pencil shavings, director Milan Erceg delves into the personal lives of each of the participating artist to examine how and why they got into an industry that rarely rewards their passion with fame or money.
The film features Scott McCloud, cartoonist and author of Understanding Comics, and local standouts Paul Guinan creator of Boilerplate, David Chelsea, acclaimed graphic novelist, Mike Richardson, founder of Dark Horse Comics and many others.
The film will premiere in Portland at the Laurelhurst Theater Thursday, July 6th at 7pm, with a matinee on Friday the 7th at 4pm. A Q&A session will follow both of the screenings.
