Taking its cue from the 24 Hour Comics Day, which was created by Scott McCloud, the 24 Hour Zine Thing is a challenge to zinesters to create a 24-page zine from conception to final copies in 24 hours.

The zines created should be a challenge for each individual zinester, so most try a new format, or layout that they are unfamiliar with.

Unlike the 24 Hour Comics Day, which happens on a prearranged day each year, the 24 Hour Zine Thing can be done over any 24 hour period during the month of July.

The deadline for finishing the zine is July 31, and the zine must be received by the organizers by September 1.

Then I picked a title. And I went from there." Julie hosted the event from 2005 to 2006 on rockscissorspaper, then passed the torch to Sonya and Shannon.
