Creators Workshop Testimonials


Shaun Manning

“Comics Experience has been a great community for testing out scripts and ideas, as well as pushing myself to try new things through the monthly challenges. Giving and receiving critiques is a great way to learn about the storytelling process, and find out the sorts of things that readers really respond to and the devices that just don’t work. CE members are also incredibly supportive, and a fairly lively group. It’s been tremendous fun.”


Joe Sergi

“On the one hand, the forum acts as learning tool. On the other hand, this forum is a place for creators to provide support for each other. There are a lot of different paths and goals, but ultimately we want to succeed in comics. So whether it is looking to write a licensed property at one of the Big Two or creating the next Indie blockbuster (or anything in between), the forum provides a sense of camaraderie. And that is because of the great people on this forum.”


Elizabeth-Amber Love

“I didn’t know what a comic script looked like until joining the Comics Experience Workshop. Now I try to create ten short stories a year and having the support of this community is essential. I’m still intimidated by the amount of talent here, but it’s a welcoming place for people of all experience levels.”


Marta Tanrikulu

“The Creators Workshop is a way of getting valuable, constructive feedback on ideas and scripts, watching a lot of creative ideas get developed, exchanging information about various aspects of producing comics, and interacting with artists and writers from many different backgrounds. How wonderful that these opportunities are offered to people who live outside of New York and Los Angeles.”


Chris Lewis

“Living overseas, I always felt that I was one step removed from the comics community I wanted to be a part of. Until I found Comics Experience, that is. The Creators Workshop has given me the opportunity to get feedback on all my comic-related questions and interact with some wonderful people, regardless of where we live.”


Luke Barnett

“Being an Australian hasn’t put me in the middle of the world of comics, but Comics Experience has made that possible. The Comics Experience Workshop is a creative community unlike any other. Build your skill as an author or artist, critique each other in a friendly, encouraging but open and honest manner, and learn all about the business of making comics. Wherever you are, joining Comics Experience will enable you to harness your talent and connect with people doing the same thing!”


George O’Connor

“The idea of making comics can be an intimidating experience. What the forums, and Comics Experience, does really well is bring you behind the curtain and give you the support to pursue the comics dream.”


Luke Durdin

“If you are an aspiring comic creator, Comics Experience is the place for you. You have entire courses taught by professionals on comic writing, comic art, comic production and so much more. You have access to a whole community that shares your interest in comics and wants to help your comic-making-dreams become a reality. The resources provided by Comics Experience are just too good to pass up.”


Kevin Byrne

“Through the feedback I get on the Challenge scripts, through the discussions I’ve had with CE members (here and in [gasp!] real life), and through the live workshop sessions, I’ve realized what my strengths and weaknesses are as a writer, how to build on those strengths (while hopefully minimizing those weaknesses at the same time), and that people will want to read my work. And that’s made me actively go out there and find people who can help me get these stories completed and published.”


Dr. Moti Friedman

“During my months in Comics Experience‚Äôs Creators Workshop I received invaluable feedback from both professional comic book creators and talented new artists that has been essential in driving my growth as a comic book writer and artist. This online community is a great place to hone your craft in a supportive environment while meeting new friends who share your love for comic books and it is my pleasure to recommend it as such.”
