Culture Shock

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.
