Hourly Comic Day: A Roundup of Great Hourly-Drawn Comics

Christine Hoxmeier

Christine Hoxmeier can usually be found hard at work in her beloved home of Austin with a cup of coffee in one hand and a taco in the other. She spends her free time reading, writing, and dreaming of a teleportation device so she can visit her friends spread across the globe on a daily basis. If it were possible to live inside one Disneyland attraction for the rest of her life, Christine would cheat and choose to split her time between It's A Small World and The Enchanted Tiki Room. She prefers to communicate in CAPSLOCK and with gifs. Twitter: @aramblingfancy

In early February, comics creators, illustrators, and other creative people around the world come together for Hourly Comic Day, which is exactly what it says. Creators make a comic, every hour, about their day, or maybe about things they’ve been thinking about. They can be rough, sketchy, pencil comics, or more polished and colored illustrations of their day. What I love is that there are no guidelines or hard and fast rules. Just a day that everyone collectively agrees to create and post comics. I took my time this year, going through the hashtags and bookmarking posts to read later. And while this is a bit more belated than I intended, I’ve rounded up a collection of Hourly Comics, including both established and new creators, to peruse at your leisure.
