Hourly Comic Day: A Round Up

What It Says On the Tin

Every February 1st, lots of artists (and even some not-so artsy people who just like comics) get together and pledge to draw one comic every hour that they are awake, about something that happened to them in that hour. It’s Hourly Comics Day, and it was yesterday! So here are some selections from our favorite participating artists:

The top pic was crafted by Nedroid, but here’s the uncropped version:

Happy Hourly Comics Day!

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
