Close but no cigar.

As reported earlier, on the weekend I undertook the Comikaze challenge in which one attempts to create a 24 page comic in 24 hours. It was an intense experience and I have never felt the sensation of time racing so fast ever before. I began calmly, even leisurely however the last 5 hours were like the Kill Bill House of Blue Leaves fight scene with wall to wall carnage and black ink everywhere. In the end I fell agonisingly short, stranded on 21 pages. I actually scrawled the last 3 pages with 10 minutes to go and scanned them, before realising they looked like the work of a blind folded 2 year old, and admitted defeat. I still intend to finish the compelling saga of Jumping Jack Fantasia when I get a moment to scratch myself.
