Hourly Comics 2022: A Totally Incomplete Round-Up

by Richard Bruton

Every February 1st, artists around the world spend their time documenting their days as part of Hourly Comics Day. And every year, I forget it’s coming up and end up realising days later. So, no change this year. But still well worth taking a look at some of the great comics that came up on the radar…

The premise is simple, a comic an hour for every hour you’re awake… or often every hour you can manage to get one done.

And here are some of the results this year… quite a lot of Wordle in here!

That’s Lucy Knisley‘s art as a perfect introduction, and it was Knisley who won Hourly Comics Day – but then again, she always seems to…

Always brilliant… the wonderful Joe Decie

Rachel Smith

Lizz Lunney

Neil Slorance – having a bad day… and that’s okay.

Jenny Clements

Tess Thompson – starting early…

Shivana Sookdeo

Kayla Miller

Maaike – doing the Wordle thing –

And finally, Isa Hanssen manages to sum up my surprise to the whole thing… Every. Damn. Year.

And now just a couple of old faves…
