Creators Workshop Testimonials


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’s 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.”


Rich Douek

“I’ve made a lot of friends here that are all working towards the same goal, and I’m amazed at the amount of great feedback I get every time I post one of my projects. One thing about comics is that it’s not an easy business, at any level. I’m not 100% sure I’d be able to stick it out without the support and help of my fellow worshippers.”


Don McMillan

“Working with such incredible, comic-loving people in the forums, all of whom are willing to point out and help me through rough areas of my scripts, is priceless, and on those occassions when I make someone laugh or hear that they enjoyed what I had written makes my day, month and year all at the same time.”


Paul Allor

“The Creators Workshop members are a tremendous resource, for support, for guidance and for advice. This isn’t to say that ‘breaking in’ will be easy. It still takes talent, and determination, and more than a little luck. But with Comic Experience’s help, it’s gone from feeling like a pipe dream to feeling like a realistic, attainable goal. I am so happy to be on this journey, and so proud to be a part of the Comics Experience community.”


Bret Bernal

“After years of struggling to get feedback for my stories, Comics Experience was a dream come true. The instant critiques on the forums are absolutely worth the price of admission. The CE community is one large family, sharing a common goal: making comics. There’s nothing better than that. And Andy Schmidt is a kind and handsome man.”


Shaun Noel

“Looking at the opportunities, job offers, contest notifications, support, helpful and constructive critiques and publishing opportunities that the people on this forum have shared with each other has definitely shown me how strong the comic community can be if we stay that – a COMMUNITY.”


Joshua Dahl

“For the past few years I have been posting scripts for review on several of the major sites that do that sort of thing. On those sites I would rarely get any worthwhile result. The people here are serious about actually getting comics made. When someone here offers a criticism, I know that it is something I should consider. When they offer praise, I know they mean it. And as a result, I’ve learned a lot. Without a doubt, my writing has gotten better.”


Janine Frederick

“I’ve officially been a member of the Comics Experience Workshop for a year now — the best investment I’ve made in a long time. We all have a common goal; to make it in comics. Now, some would think that we’d all be really competitive and a little aggressive toward one another, but in fact we are the complete opposite. The Workshop is a community, like a family spread out across the globe, related by one unique bond. We go above and beyond the normal ‘membership requirements’, often creating lasting friendships and successful creative teams. We might not all make our comic dreams come true to their fullest, but as a group we make every effort to help each other reach those goals.”
