Popeye Mandatory In Angoulême 24 Hour Comic Challenge

The first event of the Angoulême Festival, the largest comics convention in the world, is coming to an end.

The 24 hour comics event has hundreds of participants, professionals, amateurs and students, from across the world, creating a fully finished comic book in 24 hours. Hence the title. Invented by Scott McCloud, it has become a worldwide phenomenon now.

This year, the theme, chosen by Lewis Trondheim as always, is that all stories must include Popeye.
The character is public domain in Europe, but not in the USA.
Catch some more of the finished and finishing work here… and few  examples below.
