So just 8 pages this year, just a third of the way through. This brings my 24HCD score to 50%, 4 years 2 successes, two valiant attempts.

Taking a break for a couple of hours sleep, no way I can manage a full 24 pages even with helpful "pro tips" on staying up all night from Dom... Who has sketched out all his comic, and now just had to cobble it together. He's doing something about rainbow farting unicorns and hippos burping missiles... Which makes my effort of demon ninjas look relatively sane.
Anyway. Page 9 is outlined, and I'll pick up again at 5 am... I might manage 16 pages?
My excuse is I'm a bit ill...
Not looking hopeful for a completed challenge this year.
I may have to play the 'Gaimen" variation and end it when I run out of time.
At this rate I can probably do another 7 pages, but not much more. I may have to change the story... which won't be a bad thing.

I've been running this blog for about 3 years now, and seen some 40 thousand visitors, and the most popular post by far is the first post I did for #24HCD 2011, http://www.strangebiros.co.uk/2011/10/24hcd-first-post.html
which is odd, because it's not really about 24 Hour Comic Day, but about my previous career as an illustrator.
SO for #24HCD 2013 I'm planning to relax a little, mainly due to the Glenlivet I'm drinking to fend off my cold.
I'm planning to do a HellBoy story, and have prepared by reading Mignola's 'Baltimore'
The story is ok, the artwork acceptable, but mainly I feel "I could do that"
So I will.
#24HCD for me starts at about 10am tomorrow.
In the spirit of #24HCD I've no idea what the story will entail, except that it'll have a big red guy in in.
