Page Intentions: The Outlet Comics Events page aims to be a hub for you to discover and promote all comic related events happening far and wide, from large conventions to local meet-ups and comic shop sales.
Current State: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the necessary reduction of in-person events, we have scaled back the functionality of this page and have shifted focus to mostly online events. Events are available in a list or calendar format and are searchable by date and keyword. We will add functionality (such as additional search and display options, the ability to list events on your own, or sell tickets) back in as this page grows and it becomes financially feasible to do so.
To List an Event: Send event details and display image to email@example.com. You can also list it in the “classes and meet-up” or “conventions” channels on our Discord server and we’ll make sure it gets added here.

12 Hour Comic Day
February 27 @ 11:30 am - 11:59 pm EST
Outlet Comics is proud to partner with Anyone Comics (of Brooklyn fame) to bring their annual comic making event to you digitally this year!
What is usually an event for New Yorkers who don’t get to participate in October’s 24-Hour Comics Day due to New York Comic Con happening simultaneously, will now be 12 Hour “Half Marathon” of comic creation held on Discord. That’s 12 hours to make a 12 page comic!
The Outlet Comics Discord server will be set up with exclusive video channels where artists can chat and share work with one another as they create their comics. The goal is to have each artist create a 12 page comic in just 12 hours! If you simply wish to spectate, you will be able to watch these artists go to work and participate in any of the other channels we have set up.
Join in early at 11:30 am EST to talk with creators, Eric Green, Dimitrios Fragiskatos, Joe Crohn, and John Jennison. We will start drawing at noon EST Saturday, February 27th and end at 12am EST Sunday, February 28th!
This is a great chance to hangout in a creative space and meet new artists or catch up with folks you haven’t seen in a while. Let’s make comics and continue to beat 2021 into submission with our art!
