24 Hour Comics Day 2010! And a new Altered Esthetics show!

Yes, that's right, kids: it's time once again for the annual 24-Hour Comics Day! For those of you unfamiliar with the concept, you can check the Wikipedia article. For those with not even enough time for that: on 24-Hour Comics Day, you make (write, draw, ink, etc.) a 24-page comic in the space of 24 consecutive hours. It is the comics world equivalent of a marathon, or possibly American Gladiators.

Minneapolis comickers have had an official, organized event for the past several years now. This year, as per usual, it'll be taking place at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts. It'll be starting at 10:00 am on October 2nd, and finishing 10:00 of October 3rd. Details can be found on the official blog of the event. This year there'll also be an official Twitter feed for the event, which you can find here.

But that's not all! This Friday, October 1st, a new show will be opening at the Altered Esthetics gallery in Nordeast. It's called 'Hitchcock', and it features art and music inspired by the director, including local cartoonist-types Lance Ward and Brent Schoonover, among many others. There'll be a reception from 7 to 10 pm on opening night, and an artists' discussion from 1 to 3 pm on Saturday, October 16th. Details on the show can be found here.
