BAM!THWIP!Snikt!Comics.Visual storytelling. Comic book movies are booming at the box office and graphic novel sales are on the rise. The stories are interesting the masses—and probably you, too. Have you ever thought about what makes comics work? Ever thought about creating your own comics? Well now’s your chance. In this course, we’ll learn about the art behind comics and the comic creation process—from writing to laying out to drawing to inking to lettering. Then, we’ll create our own comics and print copies at the end of the week.

Please Note: It takes many people to make a comic. You DO NOT have to be able to do all aspects of this creation process. We need writers, drawers, letterers, people skilled with computers and possibly photographers (who says we can’t make a comic using photographs?).
