I almost, almost, almost got my 24 hour comic finished on time but then didn’t. All the actual art, words and layout were finished by 12:39pm, which was cool, but then I had to drive my housemate to the train station and I still needed to add the registry panels that make the Tarquin Engine work.

I remember reading this a long while back and it definitely had an affect on me from a creative perspective. Amazing how you even pulled this story concept off in 24 hours let alone the Flash goodness… well ALMOST got it done in 24 hours :). Still a valiant effort and extremely good final product!
