Friday, June 20 will feature a FREE program on Breaking Into Comics, where Andy will present an in-depth look at what it takes to begin a career in the comics industry. But it doesn’t stop there – the discussion will also emphasize the importance of staying in, with tips that will help you grow your body of work and keep your career thriving. This workshop will be full of valuable tips for anyone interested in building or maintaining a life in professional comic-making – and, once again, it’s absolutely FREE to all Amazing Con attendees! 6/20/2014 at 5:00 PM

Saturday, June 21, Andy will lead a ticketed event on Writing Comics. This 2-hour workshop will provide a condensed version of Andy’s Introduction to Comic Book Writing course. The session will cover how to block out a story and take your idea from seed concept to fully realized script! 6/21/14 from 11:00 AM-1:00 PM

Sunday, June 22 will feature a ticketed Comic Art & Graphic Storytelling session! Successful comic art isn’t just about drawing well – it’s about knowing how to use images to tell a story. In this workshop, Andy will lead attendees in the fundamentals of comic storytelling. Avoid common mistakes and get a jump start on drawing great comics! 6/22/14 from 11:00 AM-1:00 PM


Attend one, two, or all three events! The Friday session is free to convention-goers, and tickets for the Saturday and Sunday classes can be purchased individually or as a discounted bundle package.
