The Challenge: Create a 24 page comic in 24 or less consecutive hours.

The Result: Crampy hands, hallucinations, exhaustion, spilled ink, devouring of many sugary and salty snacks, and things the participants can't even remember doing.

Last year, on April 24th and 25th of 2004, I took the leap and attempted the 24 Hour Comic. Yeah, it turned out pretty sucky, being my first real crack at drawing a comic. There were no backgrounds, characters were off-model, the writing spiraled into the wide gaping maw of madness and illegibility. By the time I was done, my whole arm was cramped, i was passed out for 15 hours afterwards and I had indigestion for four days.

So of course I jumped at the chance to do it all over again this year. This comic represents my second attempt at the 24 Hour Comic, and it turned out alright, if I do say so myself. There's an actual plot, character development, and most importantly, backgrounds. Glorious backdrops to pique the mind's eye.

Enough gab. Dig these pages, the birth of a new series from me, Phil Gibson. Titled(tentatively) Captain of Defeat, it unravels the story of Mikhail, who wants more than anything to be a grand adventurer, but soon discovers he might not actually have what it takes to do it alone. I'm sure we've all felt that way at one point or another.

Once you're done reading Captain of Defeat, you can check out my other comics, Lancaster the Ghost Detective and the now-dead Fever Dream. It'll entertain you for... well, a few minutes at least. I hope.

Enjoy!
-Phil
