Ottawa Comic Jam

Home | Old Art Scans

wherewhen1a.jpg

The September Comix Jam theme was suggested by Gerard Belec. He thought telling stories backwards would be a ton of fun; and he was SO right! The idea was that the first panel you drew on the page was Panel 6 (that is the END panel of the story). The next person had to draw panel 5 and so on, until finally the last person drew the beginning of the story (Panel 1)

It was a delightful challenge: a much more structured event than usual. When you read the comics, remember that the last panel was drawn first! They should be readable, backward OR forward really. Enjoy!

Thanks again to everyone who came out and took up the jam’s theme: Clayton Jacobs, Andrew Stutt, Elizabeth Walsh, James Rule, Amy VanTorre, Gerard Belec, Susan Shore and guest visitor Keith Savage.
