After just posting about our slate of new course sections on Saturday, Andy Schmidt‘s Introduction to Comic Book Writing already only has 2 slots left as of this writing. If you want in, you might want to sign up soon.
Our other courses are open for enrollment, but filling up as well: Introduction to Comic Book Coloring, Introduction to Comic Book Art, and Comic Book Lettering and Production
PLEASE NOTE: The Intro to Writing class is a required prerequisite for our Advanced Classes in writing. Plan ahead, if you’d like to take our advanced courses next year!
INTRODUCTION TO COMIC BOOK WRITING
Intro to Comic Book Writing will be taught by former Marvel and IDW Editor and writer, Andy Schmidt.
During his time at Marvel, Andy worked on nearly every major character in the Marvel canon, and edited hit titles such as X-Factor, the Annihilation saga, Alias, and more.
At IDW, he managed major franchises like GI Joe and Transformers. He is also the author of the Eagle Award-winning book, The Insider’s Guide to Creating Comics and Graphic Novels, published by Impact Books.
In this six-week course, not only will you learn comic book writing from a pro, but the course will be packed with practical, real-world advice on the industry and “breaking in” to help you pursue your career in comics!
That’s why Comics Experience alum, Nick Spencer, tweeted:
“For all aspiring comic pros asking for advice on craft/breaking in, I once again highly recommend Andy Schmidt’s @ComicExperience courses.”
A few years ago, Nick had to move to New York City to take Comics Experience classes (check out his guest blog here to read that tale). But you don’t have to move, now that the courses are online. This one will sell out fast!
