BACKWARD Jam returns

To see the completed page proceed to the link!

It's that time of the year again, when kids go back to school, the OIAF takes over the city and Nuit Blanche #2 is merely a week away. Also, it is the time when the Ottawa Comic Jam presents its signature jam of the year: The September BACKWARDS jam. Come to the Shanghai Restaurant and join other comic artists, animators, writers and enthusiasts as we tell stories backwards.

You begin with a six panel page and start your story at Panel 6, describing the ending of the story. You pass the page to another artist and they draw Panel 5 (and so on). Finally, the last artist draws Panel 1 describing the ‘beginning’ of the comic. It’s loopy and fun: give it a try!
