Layering Information on the Comic Book Page
Andy Schmidt takes you through how to layer information in panels and across a page both in script and in art so that you can be sure to keep your readers completely clear, informed, and entertained and you can spend more time and space with on your story, and NOT on your exposition. Increase your efficiency as a creator and the density of your content!
There will be events on October 17 and December 12 as well, but we are still working on the details! Please keep checking the blog for further information.
