Post 24 Hour Comics Day coverage
Once again 24 hour comics day was a success, not only in terms of participation and experience but also in gaining attention from the local media. The Columbia Missourian came by after the event to interview the last creators standing, including Kelly, Keith and Kirsten. You can read the story at the Missourian’s Web site.
We also had television coverage from KOMU for the first time. It was a short segment but it managed to get really good clips of almost everyone who was present at the event. Watch the clip with KOMU on Demand.
I am extra happy with the coverage we received this year as it will hopefully garner more interest in the comic book community that we have here in Columbia. Again, I’d like to thank Boen and Steve at Quinlan Keep for hosting the 24 Hour Comic Event. I was extremely happy with the attendance and level of enthusiasm everyone had. It’s always a pleasure to be in the same room with such talented people, and it always inspires me afterwards to get my butt in gear and get some more work done. I really hope it has done the same for all of you. It seems like we may have some new Midmococo regulars after this event, and that, in my opinion, makes this year’s 24 Hour Comics day the biggest success of all.
Thanks again to everyone who showed up, and I hope to see you all at one of our meetings really soon!
