Welcome to the online version of Filling the Hole, a 24 hour comic I created in 1998.
24 hour comics are an invention of Scott McCloud's (there's even a page devoted to 24 hour comics on Scott's website). The idea is "to create a complete 24 page comic book in 24 continuous hours. That means everything: Story, finished art, lettering, colors (if you want 'em), paste-up, everything."
By that standard, "Filling the Hole" ain't quite a 24-hour comic - I didn't do the paste-up (or lay out this web page) within the 24 hours. And although I did letter it in the original 24 hours, I've relettered this web-version for legibility's sake. Still, what the heck, I made it up, wrote it and drew it in 23 hours and 59 minutes; that's good enough for me.
There are two options. You can read the small-bites version, in which you load and view the pages one at a time. To go to the next page, just click on the current page.
Or you can choose the huge-whomping-entire-comic-in-one-big-gulp version. This version loads all 24 pages on a single page, which will probably take a heck of a long time to download - while it's loading, you might go make yourself a cup of coffee or even a sandwich. The advantage is, once it's loaded, you can read the whole thing by scrolling down, rather than having to tediously load a new page 24 separate times..
