The ook was assembled before the creation of 24Hour Comic Day. The 24 Hour Comic was an original premis.

I would have preferred to read more in this autobiography about the relationship 24-hour vs full-format approaches; I would have also been interested in seeing some numbers from the industry ( something in the vein of " takes about 350 hours to complete a commercial, award-grade 24-page comic ").

I would have liked to learn ore about the mathematic of the 24-hour idea from one of the leading economists of comics ( see author 's Understanding Comics and Making Comics).

As others have found for other media blitz-projects, I find the 24-hour period too short for making a 24-page comic.Overall, I liked the spirit of the " 24-hour " idea, but did not really like this nove and do n't trust the idea makes sense in practice.
