25 Oct Comic Book in a Day 2017 Results!
On Oct 7th, 2017, Nickel Plate Arts hosted our 4th Annual Comic Book in a Day Challenge! Artists from all over the Midwest gathered on our campus to create their own comic books from scratch. We will be publishing their work in a 2-volume compilation comic book and we look forward to sharing more stories about their work and accomplishments in the future!
Our Comic Book in a Day Challenge Artists ranged from professionals to elementary school students!
Each of them brought a different perspective on the importance of comic books as an art medium and each took their own creative story in a different direction. Check out our social media feeds for more information about these artists and preorder the 4th annual issue of Comic Book in a Day now!
