Members of our Creators Workshop enjoy access to regular book club sessions. These meetings, offered in the same format as our live workshops, provide participants with a “craft-based discussion” to help them learn more about how a specific comic comes together. A moderator leads a Q&A session with the creator – or creators! – for in-depth insight on the making of a masterpiece. Creators Workshop members may ask questions of their own, and are encouraged to conduct their own deepdives into a text. Selected reads include a variety of Big Two books, indies, and webcomics.
Recently, we read Tet along with writer and Comics Experience staffer Paul Allor! Tet was published in 2015 as a joint collaboration between Comics Experience and IDW. Our founder Andy Schmidt led the event, which focused on how Tet came together and working with artist Paul Tucker. A forum thread is available to follow along with the discussion here. Workshop members may access a video of the Tet book club workshop here.
We are currently working on expanding our book club experience and offerings. Please keep checking back on the blog for more information! And make sure to sign up with the Creators Workshop to keep up with not only our book club, but critiques, running discussions with active creators, the latest news and views on the comics industry, and how to build your career in the business. We look forward to having you!
If you want to make comics, write, draw, letter, and color comics, or improve as a comics creator, you’ll find like-minded friends and colleagues in our online workshops and courses. We hope to see you there!
