About This Class

NOT a course in drawing, but a comprehensive look at creating comic books specifically for the writer. These two hours and forty minutes of video lectures by comic veteran Stefan Petrucha combine nuts-and-bolts tips, rules and insider info with easy-to-understand theory. They cover everything from the basics, to panel descriptions that inspire visuals, character-driven dialogue, the writer’s relationship with the artist and the industry, and much more. Not just about superheroes, the course treats the graphic novel as an open medium capable of expressing any content from genre to poetry.
