About This Class

In this class, I will be teaching you — from start to finish — the process of creating a comic book. Each major step in the creation process will be separated into its own segment. This way, you can easily go to the part you want to focus on. Or, in case you are already familiar with some of the concepts, or only wish to learn about a specific portion, you can jump straight there.

More specifics: I will be creating a 4-page mini comic, which I will explain in the lessons. This is great for learning: you get to see me create a full comic, while still keeping the class short and giving you the chance to make your own full story. It's perfect to help newcomers get past any fear of having to do a full 32-36 page story — you can start off with something small, easy, and super fun!

So, I hope you enjoy the class! If you have any questions afterwards, just drop them in the discussion section so that I can read and answer them. If a lot of people have similar questions, I can also make extra videos and post them to the class.

Enjoy, and have fun!
