24 Hours From Q-Town: HOUR 24 and BEYOND

Hi Kids,

It’s all over but the shouting, and we’re all too tired to do any shouting anyway.

Jeff says he’ll finish, but now he’s adding 3-D accoutrements to his pages.

NEWS FLASH!!!! Better late (not really late, with 2 minutes to spare) than never, Jeff has completed the oddest, most unwieldly, 24 Hour Comic in history!

The Redneck Zombie saga (all 3 chapters) has finally come to a close.

So there you have it. Another successful 24 Hour Comic Book Day.

Our thanks go to Gene and the crew at Kaboom Test Labs West, for being such gracious (and trusting) hosts. We simply could not have done this without you!

Also to you who have attempted to follow us both here and on Ben’s Live UStream feed. We’ll have time lapse photography of the whole event soon.

Until next year…

Be Well, Kids!

Your pal,

Chuck

Addendum: We received the last two entries from our previously undisclosed location, another segment of the Coconuts vs. Soap saga, but I’m afraid I’m more confused now than ever!

Oh well, mine is but to post, not to interpret.

Be Well,

24 Hours From Q-Town: HOUR 23

Hi Kids!

One more hour to go and another 24 Hour Comic Day will be “In the can”, as they say.

We bade farewell to Julie.

The big news of this hour is that Aliina has finished, maintaining her perfect record for the 7th year in a row. She holds the 7000 BC record for the most finishes, a record she will probably maintain, since nobody in 7000 BC has ever done that.

Here’s her comic “MUSES”. It’s a bit risque’…

Aside from that, not a lot going on…

One more hour to go.

Be Well,

Your pal,

Chuck

24 Hours From Q-Town: HOUR 20

Hi Kids!

Daybreak over 24 Hour Comic Day.

100_5914

You know today, Sunday, October 6, 2013, marks the second day of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the most photographed annual event in the world! Hundreds of hot air balloons and balloonists (and tourists, thank God) converge on our little town every year and put on quite a show.

Here’s another photograph, albeit not a very good one because we are sort of far away here at Kaboom Test Labs West.

While I was out celebrating the dawn, Zach finished his comic and he chose the Twin Suns gift certificate.

And that’s all for HOUR 20.

Be Well,

Your pal,

Chuck

24 Hours From Q-Town: HOURS 18 & 19

Hi Kids!

Boy, do I feel refreshed after that nap!

This is what happened while I slept:

Got another update from Mike, Jeff, and Nathan at the previously undisclosed location.

Looks kinda sinister, don’t it?

And here on the home front, some folks sleep, and some folks don’t.

Of those that don’t, Ben gets back to basics with pencil and paper.

Night falls on Jesse’s story.

100_5908

 

Sarah continues her tale of love and benevolent werewolves.

100_5906

 

John continues his intricate line work in the “Dungeons of Space”.

100_5907

 

Aliina presses like she always does.

100_5898

 

AND THIS JUST IN… SARAH’S DONE!!! She’s the first, so in the long standing  tradition of 7000 BC’s 24 Hours From Q-Town, she wins the prize of her choice. She chooses a familiar looking Ben Girven original t-shirt!

While the rest of the room toils on…

100_5899 100_5901 100_5902 100_5903 100_5904 100_5905 100_5909

And Jeff’s Redneck Zombies and Cat continue their tribulations.

Back in a minute or so…

Be Well,

Your pal,

Chuck

24 Hours From Q-Town: HOURS 14 & 15

Hi Kids!

Well past the halfway point, and folks are still plugging away…

John and Austin are collaborating.

Here’s Jeff’s PART TWO: Moonlit Showdown w/Redneck Zombies

 

100_5892

 

And then there’s Talon’s Benjamin Franklin  robot (note his face is stitched on) with the Gatling gun arm…

100_5887

 

Can’t wait to see what that’s all about… Found this interesting Ben Franklin quote that might just apply: “Three can keep a secret, if two of them are dead”.

Be Well,

Your pal,

Chuck
