Comic Books: Inside & Out!

, Comic book writer & beer brewer

Comics:Inside & Out an ideal class for those who are interested in reading comic books, but also those interested in learning about the history of comic books, seeing the process of making comics with live demonstration pieces of how the words and art come together. This workshop also fits those who want to get a casual look at what's out there and overall, de-mystifying the geekness of buying comic books from a comic shop.

A hands-on session is planned to have audience members participate in the layout process of a climactic page and unrealeased page of Eben07! Help create and analyze a script and take it to layout and rough penciling. Hands on excitement! 

Professional comic creators D.Bethel & Eben Burgoon will be co-teaching this class and opening the door to the wonderful world of comic books,stories that go beyond just superheroes and zombies.  So come and take your first steps into this larger world!

*** A note on the $10 admission - each attendee will receive  an Eben07 comic book  plus a $5 giftcard to Big Brother Comics. Only registered SkillShare attendees will have access to these perks! We'll also be giving out 5 passes to Sac-Con on Sept. 30th!
