Fes readies his LEGOs for his attempt at a 24 Hour Comic. He will be broadcasting his efforts (technology pending) on Ustream on Friday 17th, 1pm Eastern (-5 GMT, DST). Which should about about when Australians start 24 Hour Comics Day. Catch continuous info at

Finished... kinda... I managed to have 24 pages and a cover by 23 Hours and 50 minutes, but the story is incomplete. Its a Part one... I underestimated the number of pictures I took and how long I was making the story... so I'm not sure it even counts as a "successful 24 Hour Comic". However, I DID meet my personal goal.... but now I have a new webcomic to finish o_O

But I have all the pictures, so this should not take too long to finish.

Wow, pretty impressive. The depth-of-field is really cool, and I see you took great care to eliminate accidental backgrounds. It really turns out pretty awesome visually.

You did mispell "clues" though, you have it as "cluse" on the page about 2 from the end. hrough. http://www.drunkduck.com/Jenny_Everywhere_and_the_Golden_Key/index.php?p=474512

Thanks :)

There is one strip I wanna redo a bit (take out a panel), and there is one more strip that has some bad typos. I'll fix it all once I start working on the rest.

The background would have been better if I had the blue sheet pulled tighter. BucketFill with Anti-Alias did alright. But I learned a bit more about doing a Lego Comic :)

Very nice, Fes.  I don't see why you couldn't continue at a more sedate pace...1 page a day?  I wish I could get out my LEGOs and attempt storytelling through them (I used to have an elaborate kingdom on my bedroom floor when I was little).  If I can't get a job next year, I'll try this between job interviews. ^_^
