1350 pages of comics was created in 3 days, that's about 60 standard comic books or about as many comics as Marvel publishes a month.
159 people have joined the Pulp Faction boards since registrations for challenge opened
500,000 web page hits were recieved by the forum during the 3 weeks of the challenge
While its hard to say how many individuals visited the forums it can be guessed at between 3000 and 5000 people.

I hope you join us next year for an even better event.

Question ,Mark;
When you say grand prize winner, then 1st runner up..is that like the Miss Universe thing, where, if the Winner of the 24 hour comic challenge, cannot fulfil his or her duties as the grand prize winner, the 1st runner up shall step up to fill the role, and do 24 hour comic challenge winner things, like visiting sick kiddies in hospitals..?
..and a sash..
