Pencils and other art tools are hitting the paper at Happy Harbour Comics.
The goal over the next 24 hours is to get each artist in the shop to create a 24 page comic book in 24 hours. The event is to help raise funds and awareness for Literacy Alberta.
Jay Bardyla, event organizer and owner of Happy Harbour Comics, tells the Alberta Morning News that usually a comic is put together by a group of people.
"In this case we're asking one individual to do the job of about four people," explains Bardyla. "And instead of doing over about two months worth of time they're going to do it in about 24 hours."
Bardyla says they write, pencil and ink a 24-page comic in 24-hours.
24-hour Comic day was originally organized as a worldwide event back in 2004 and continues as a worldwide annual event.
Happy Harbour comics is located at 10729 104 avenue, the event started at 10am Saturday and runs until 10am Sunday. (tk, twd)
