Part pulp conspiracy romp, part B-movie adventure, the 48-Hour Comic Book was an experiment in collaborative comic book writing where we gave 15 writers and artists from a bunch of different backgrounds and disciplines a basic outline, some paper, pencils, ink and watercolors, and then asked them to produce a comic book in 48 hours in the basement of Filoxenia Conference Center at Cyprus Comic Con 2016. Insane? You bet. Check out the results at booth #53.
