I say, "attempted" since John didn't finish in 24 hours, but it's still an amazing "noble failure". Firstly, as a part of our story premise exchange, Michael O'Keefe, still jazzed by his recent visit to Taiwan, gave him an impossible story premise along with a 300 page book of source material (I might be exaggerating, but not by much). In the next 3-4 hours, John amazingly cobbled together the story you better damn well read (or have read) if you're reading this review.
The illustrations (no surprise) are so rich, and the characters so well rounded... apparently John has been told that he needs to expand this story. I think it's a great stand-alone story, but I can see why the characters have grabbed folks' imaginations and hearts.
Note, this stoy will be appearing in the Squid Works' own 24 Hour Comics People 2 book (coming soon), so if you want a copy in print, stay tuned. And, if you like this story, make sure to read John's other webcomics, including Gypsy over at Girl-a-matic and pick up some of his books at www.squidworks.com/peters.html
