Every comics reader has a favorite ensemble cast (or two), whether it be a superhero squad like The Avengers or The Justice League or the slice-of-life stories found in books like Strangers in Paradise. And everything in between, of course.

For writers, learning to balance so many characters with their own unique arcs and motivations can seem like a Sisyphean task. James Tynion IV (Justice League, Detective Comics) wants to help you with crafting compelling stories where everyone you write has a chance to shine.

On Saturday, April 20, he’ll be teaching a master class on writing team and ensemble comics! Topics covered include creating your cast, deciding on a leader, enemies, pacing, and more. There will be a Q&A so you finish the day out with everything you’ll need to know to get started on your ensemble book. You don’t want to miss out on such a great opportunity to learn from an industry leader!

You can sign up for the master seminar here. Remember, our slots tend to fill up quickly and space is limited!
