Book Group Recordings Re-Opened – Featuring Prominent Industry Guests!

comicsexperience-logoComics Experience is pleased to announce that we’ve re-opened many of our archived recordings of Creators Workshop Book Group sessions!

Book Group sessions are a feature formerly offered to Creators Workshop members. The sessions featured live online discussions with working professionals in the comics industry – including prominent names like Faith Erin Hicks (Friends With Boys), Scott Snyder (American Vampire), Jeff Lemire (Essex County), Kelly Sue DeConnick (Captain Marvel), and many more!

Archives are now re-opened exclusively to members of our Creators Workshop, who can access them directly from the “Book Club Sessions Now Live and Unarchived” thread on our online discussion forum!

CE founder Andy Schmidt is excited to re-introduce Workshop members to this popular feature, announcing that “There’s HOURS AND HOURS of fantastic content on here with geniuses like Scott Snyder, Matt Kindt, Jason Aaron, Colleen Coover & Paul Tobin, Faith Erin Hicks, Jim Zub, and just far too many to name them all. And it’s all about the books they worked on.”

To hear these creators discuss their craft, Workshop members can jump over to the forum thread and start listening at any time!

To learn more about becoming a Creators Workshop member, head over to our page here! Membership includes a variety of benefits, including peer and professional critiques for artists and writers, Live Workshop discussion and info sessions, discount opportunities, and more.

We’re pleased to offer this new benefit to our members. Enjoy the recordings!

If you want to make comics, write, draw, letter, and color comics, or improve as a comics creator, you’ll find like-minded friends and colleagues in our online workshops and courses. We hope to see you there!
