Culture Shock

By Erin Adair-Hodges

Something for Everyone

Do you love comics? Do you adore trucker speed? Well, then, 24 Hour Comics Day is your cup of Mountain Dew. Every year, artists of all abilities gather for 86,400 seconds to create 24 comic book pages. The event takes place all around the world, and the only Albuquerque location is at Harwood Art Center (1114 Seventh Street NW), brought to you by 7000 BC, which promotes indie New Mexican comics. The sketching goes from noon to noon, Saturday, Oct. 3, through Sunday, Oct. 4. Participation is free and open to all ages, though kids better clear it with their parents, even if it's not a school night. To sign up, go to 24hourcomics.com, 7000bc.org or call Jeff at 262-2952.

Watermelon Ranch’s Furball 2009

By W. Jacob Divett

It all started as one couple's dream: a scenic 10-acre ranch with lots of fresh air and a little cottage. For dogs. And cats. And then the couple got a few more cottages, a few more animals, and a little place called the Watermelon Mountain Ranch no-kill animal shelter was born.
