Oh dear. I've signed up for this year's 24 Hour Comics Day.

I first heard of 24 Hour Comics Day years ago as a scary idea from Scott McCloud. A day is chosen, and around the world, cartoonists do a 24 page comic in 24 hours. That's normally months of work. Terrifying, but an intriguing notion that has niggled at me ever since.

In 2007 I sat in at the beginning of the event in London out of curiosity and found that I didn't want to leave. I wanted to join in.

So this year, the new comic shop "Kingdom of Adventure" in Kirkcaldy is hosting an event. I've thrown my hat into the ring, risking exhaustion, hallucinations and possible insanity.

Wish me luck...
