Comics Experience has been around for nearly four years, and it's grown steadily every year. But it's grown with one thing in mind from me--every course, the workshop, in fact, everything Comics Experience does must live up to my own standards. And those standards are these:
1. Comics Experience is honest and encouraging. There is no soft answer--but there are encouraging ones.
2. Any course or class or workshop must be one that I want to take and wish had been around when I was trying to break into comics ten years ago.
I (and now we) are committed to making these the best, most comprehensive courses available--anywhere.
Thanks for reading!
