New Website, New Courses, New Mentorships & More!

A message from Andy Schmidt, founder of Comics Experience…

We have officially launched a brand new Comics Experience website — check it out by clicking on the image below!


And with the new website, we’ve expanded our course offerings (including some exciting new advanced courses), our mentorship program, and more! Check out the new website, or read through the highlights below:

Our popular Advanced Writing course that was previously one class has now been split into TWO five-week classes. Click on the individual course listings to read more about Advanced Comic Book Writing: Building Your Series and Advanced Comic Book Writing: Scripting Your First Issue.

Likewise, we’ve split the Advanced Comic Art course into two courses as well: Advanced Comic Book Art: Professional Penciling Techniques and Advanced Comic Book Art: Storytelling Master Class.


For both sets of courses, we have bundle deals if you want to take the two courses and still save some cash.

And, due to the popularity of our Introduction to Figure Drawing & Construction course, we’ve now added a new Advanced Figure Drawing & Construction class!

Plus, Advanced Comic Book Coloring and Comic Book Editing and Project Management have returned, along with a full slate of Intro courses.

ALL are open for enrollment RIGHT NOW. Check out the individual course listings of all TWELVE classes at the links above for more info!

mentoringWhat’s mentoring? It’s individualized learning with me (Andy Schmidt, former Marvel and IDW Editor), Nicole Boose (former Marvel Editor), or Mike Siglain (former DC Comics Editor). It’s perfect for creative development, career planning, or getting the insider view into the industry that you need.

In these one-on-one, conference phone call sessions, you’ll meet with your professional mentor and plan out a path to success to achieve your individual and specific goals.

Are you a comic art fan? Then this is very awesome: check out all the great new banners on our website with incredible art from pro artists like Chris Bachalo, Paolo Rivera, Marco Chechetto, Andrea Di Vito, and Chris Eliopoulos, plus banners from CE Creators Workshop members, staff, and alumni like Robert Atkins, Gannon Beck, and Carl Peterson! We’re displaying some really fun art on the site now! Just browse through the pages, and the banners will shift/refresh as you go…

(And check out a preview of a couple of the banners by our Art Instructor, Robert Atkins, with colors by Simon Gough, below…)

And, if you want to know more about our courses and our Creators Workshop community, we now have a video where I explain what it’s all about — and many of our alumni and Workshop members talk about their own experiences! Thanks to CE alum and Workshop member, Joey Groah, for his hard work in putting this together for us!

Thanks, everyone, for all your continued support, and I hope you’re even half as excited about the new site and new offerings as I am!
