24HCD is tough. It's a challenge. It's a marathon of beautiful comics creation.

So like any marathon, experienced participants always recommend that you should train, practice, and inform yourself about the marathon you'll be doing. That way you get the most out of the experience.

This is EXACTLY what the Blitz Comics 24HCD Survival Guide does.

EVENTS UPDATE: If you missed our Comic-Con panel, our APE IronHand Event, or our Creator Battle at Comic-Con 2015 you can catch us on September 27th for the "Writers Battle Event" at Peet's Coffee.
