Not to be confused with Scott McCloud's fantastic Understanding Comics and Reinventing Comics books, this a compilation of the best 24-hour comics done as part of his initial 24 hour comics challenge (in which artists are given 24 hours to create a full 24 page strip).

This is an extremely fast read (I finished it in an hour), it's fun if you like dark and different kind of stuff. Some of the authors have some pretty twisted imaginations.

As comics, they are rough and unpolished. However, if you have an appreciation for the form, they are interesting in the context of the 24-hour challenge.

I'm not into comics much nowdays, but I enjoy Scott McCloud's
work, so I thought I'd give the "24 Hour Comics" a try.

I think I expected a larger format ... the art is cramped,
the lettering sometimes hard to read. For my tastes, the
selection includes far too much horror and/or despair.
All in all, I'm disappointed in it.

This isn't bad. After being impressed with "Understanding Comics" and "Comics Re-invented", I wasn't real thrilled with this. Granted, McCloud merely edited this and it IS an interesting genre, but not likely to read any more in this area. Definitely something different.
