On October 5th 24HCDPerth is celebrating its 10th anniversary by Going Green! And it’s easy for all of us to be green as we’re recycling ALL of our previous themes for the event.

And with 24HCDPerthGoing Green, this gives all participants the chance to Rework, Reuse, or Recycle. Missed out on The Storybook Edition? Wished that you to could suffer from Future Shock? Now’s your chance!

Rework: Took part in a previous year and liked your story idea, but not the final execution? Now’s your chance to Rework it to a level that you are happy with.
Reusue: Had a great prompt in a previous year but just didn’t like anything that you produced? Now you can Reuse your prompt to create an entirely new piece.
Recycle: Wer’e going the easy route by choosing to Recycle all of our old prompts, so participants can have a go at any from our past ten years.

To continue the celebrations we’re also being supported by some amazing local businesses The Nostalgia Box, White Dwarf Books, Quality Comics, and Neighbourhood Press, who are all offering some amazing prizes to be won by participants who take part in person and complete their comics, and we’re having some materials supplied by ED Art Supplies to make sure we have what we need to get the work done!

We’re also going to take this even further by attempting a crowd-funded print run of a selection of the best completed works from the event.

This is a free event. However we must limit only those 18+ to attempt the full 24-hour challenge. For anyone 11+, we have a 4-page/4-hour challenge for those 11-17, and an 8-page/8-hour challenge for anyone 15-17. Participants 18+ can choose to do the 8-hour challenge.

And as always, if you can’t make it to Perth, you can take part online!

So what have all of themes been over the last nine years?
2010* – Three Words, Something Shared – Bag Edition (everyone had three words to work from, ‘bag’, and two random words which are different for everyone)
2011 – The Machine of Death (based off of the amazing concept by Ryan North of Dinosaur Comics/Unbeatable SquirrelGirl and you should look it up)
2012 – 24HCDPerth… The Musical! (create a story inspired by a random song title)
2013 – Three Words, Something Shared – Balloon Edition (everyone had three words to work from, ‘balloon’, and two random words which are different for everyone)
2014 – Storybook Edition (create a story based off the title of an obscure fairytale)
2015 – Future Shock (titles came from out of print and obscure sci-fi stories)
2016 – E is for Everything (every person was given a word beginning with ‘E’ to use as their inspiration)
2017 – prompted. (create a story off of a supplied prompt, think ‘it was a dark and stormy night…’)
2018 – A Painfully 80s Comicwave (every prompt was a reference to the platinum decade of culture, the 1980s, and in particular, the American 1980s)
2019 – Going Green (choose a card from any of the themes above!)
* Note: In 2010 we didn’t have a theme as it was our first year. So the theme above comes from an 8 hour challenge called the 88-C which we ran in 2016.


24 Hour Comics Day Perth is back for 2018!


Over the upcoming Queen’s Birthday weekend (September 22-23) challengers will be attempting to do a 24 page comic in 24 hours (or multiple short stories to add up to 24 pages).


This year we’ve also introduced an under 18 category, with an 8 hour/ 8 page challenges for those 15-17 and a 4 hour/4 page challenge for those 11-14!


The theme challengers will be working from this year is A Painfully 80s Comicwave, where all the prompts will be based on 1980s pop culture!

Grab yourself a ticket to the event here:

We are back again with another shorter more intense challenge. On the 30th of April 2016 we’ll be putting on an 8 hour challenge for a shorter, but arguably more intense experience. As always it’s free to attend and all skill levels are welcome!

We’re back at the Hub on UWA’s Nedlands campus.

24HCDPerth 2015 – Future Shock
October 3-4 at the ALVA Hub at UWA Nedlands Campus. A new, spacious studio space that allow an even higher number of participants to take part.
The theme for this year is to create stories based on the titles of in-the-public-domain 20th century sci-fi stories. Will you have to work with the inspiration of The Gun, or maybe The Colours of Space?
This year we’re also introducing limited spaces for those interested in testing the waters with an 8 hour/8 pages challenge.
We’re also going to look into the prospect of having a crowd-funded compendium of curated works, voted on by the participants after the event!

Eventbrite - 24 Hour Comic Day Perth 2015

We’ll finally after a website crushing influx of attention, we’ve reached the end of road. Now that we’re finally recovered, it’s time to wrap up!


After a long 24 Hours we’ve finally reached the end! With a fantastic turnout of 31 challengers taking part at the ALVA Tower at UWA Nedlands and 6 Challengers online this was our biggest year yet.
We’d like to thank the University of Western Australia¬† Architecture, Landscape and Visual Design school for hosting our event this year.


Join us again soon for another comic challenge!

Jump over to our 24HCDPerth Facebook page for completed comics and @24HCDPerth Twitter for updates from the event!



Well only the most committed challengers are left now, with just six hours until pencils down. We’ve seen some fantastic work this weekend with several completed comics. You can check out some of the completed works on Facebook or Twitter, and most likely more will appear during the day as people wake up and and upload their work.
We’ll continue through until Saturday 5th October 10:30am when 24 Hour Comic Perth 2014 will be officially over for another year.



The finish line is in sight now, keep at it brave challengers!


We’re officially at the half way mark now and our challengers have been working steadily for 12 hours. As we’re approaching the business end of the event, the room has become quiet with just the scratch of pens, and shuffling of paper filling the room.


Some of our participants have now spread to the lower levels of the building and have taken up a spot in the boardroom. We’ve already had one completed comic handed in and a couple of participants head home to complete their comics there.


If you’re taking a short break from your comic why don’t you check out some of our online participants who have been prodigiously posting over on our @24HCDPerth twitter page. Feel free to post your work using our #24HCDPerth hashtag and we’ll share it with the world!
