September 25th 2013 Backwards Jam

Backward Jam instructions surrounding Daniel Martelock's
amazing painting from Chinatown Remixed 2013
Last September, the Ottawa Comic Jam revisited the extremely popular 'Backwards Comic Jam' idea, initially proposed by Gérard Bélec a few years ago. Tradition has encouraged us to continue to tell stories backwards in September and it is an exhausting and silly process that requires the artist 'finishing' the page to come up with an ending... that ending being Panel 1.

Thanks to those who took the time to join us for our September Jam: Sue Marsden, Clay Jacobs, Scott MacLellan, Andrew Stutt, Gérard Bélec, Amy VanTorre, Liz Walsh, James Rule, Ifer Lawrence, Susan Shore, Mark Proulx, Andrés Proulx, "Sanchez Delfuego", Sasha Lapointe Lawless, Tim Moerman and Joey Clarette. Your creative contributions make the jams possible!

Thanks to the Shanghai Restaurant for providing a safe, fun and supportive atmosphere for us to indulge in our cooperative art jamming. Thanks also to our co-sponsors: DragonHead Studio and Brain Power Studio Inc. who supply us w/ 110 lbs card stock, pencils and the like!

PS -- If you are interested in joining us at one of our regularly scheduled comic jams, please feel free to contact me via phone or email for more information, or simply drop in to the Shanghai on the last Wednesday of the month!

PPS -- **How to read the following comics: they can be read normally and should make some sort of sense, but remember that they were drawn starting with the last panel. So, they are funny read from back to front as well.

PPPS -- Previous years' Backward Comic Jams are available here:
September 2012
September 2011
September 2010
