CE Alum and Instructor Joe Sergi Publishes “The Law For Comic Book Creators”!

Joe SergiJoe Sergi is a Comics Experience alum and faculty member whose nonfiction book, The Law for Comic Book Creators, is now available from McFarland Publishing!

Joe comes uniquely qualified to offer a book on this subject: he’s a practicing attorney AND a comic writer whose credits include Indie Comics Horror, Great Zombies In History, and Sky Girl and the Superheroic Legacy!

Joe has also shared his expertise with Comics Experience students as the instructor of our Comic Book Law for Creators course. He discusses the course and his motivation for offering it here.

Like his CE course, Joe’s book offers a comprehensive overview of legal topics that apply directly to comic book writers, artists and other creators – including copyright, contracts, censorship, and more.

Law for Comic Book CreatorsThe book uses real-life case studies from the comic book industry to break down and clarify the complexities of these legal topics – and to illustrate how they apply specifically to making comics.

Joe’s goal in writing the book is to help comic creators at any career stage make informed decisions about a topic that many find intimidating – but that no one can afford to ignore.

He comments, “This book was a lot of work and I hope it shows. It’s a mix of practical advice and the stories behind every major comic book lawsuit in an effort to educate and entertain.”

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting out as a comics creator, The Law For Comic Book Creators is designed with your interests in mind. To learn more or to purchase the book, follow these links to the book’s McFarland or Amazon pages!
