Creators Workshop Pro Critiques & Guests!

The Creators Workshop is an on-going community of writers, artists, colorists, and letterers all dedicated to getting published and improving their craft. It's a community focused on making comics!

Our members post their work, critique each other, and discuss all aspects of creating comics in our members-only forums. But in addition to all that, members are eligible each month for critique by our instructors and special guests!

This month's special guest critiquer is Chuck Dixon. Chuck has more than twenty-five years of experience in the graphic novel field as an editor, writer and publisher. He's contributed well over a thousand scripts to publishers like DC Comics, Marvel, Dark Horse, and currently writes in the GI Joe universe for IDW. One script posted on our forums by September 24, 2011 will be eligible for a written critique by Chuck!

In addition, one artwork post by that date will be eligible for a written review by professional penciller and Comics Experience instructor, Robert Atkins (Snake Eyes, GI Joe, Heroes for Hire).

Plus, every month, Andy Schmidt, Comics Experience founder, writer, and former Marvel and IDW Editor, provides a written critique of an additional script and artwork post.

Our past guest critiquers have included:
  • Peter David
  • Jason Aaron
  • John Romita, Jr.
  • Wil Moss, DC Editor
  • Jim McCann
  • Andy Lanning
  • Pablo Raimondi
  • Tom Feister
  • Nathan Edmondson
  • Jody LeHeup, Marvel Editor
  • Allan Heinberg
  • Jim Cheung
  • Mike Raicht
  • Charles P. Wilson III & Nick Pitarra
The Creators Workshop is the ideal place to receive honest and helpful feedback on your work from both like-minded colleagues and professionals!

Beyond our forums, we also have regular, live, online meetings -- often with special guests -- where we discuss comic-related topics like marketing, budgeting, cover design, breaking in, pitching, self-publishing, and more.

Our past live guests have included:
  • Robert Kirkman
  • Christos Gage & Chris Samnee
  • Kurt Busiek
  • John Layman & Rob Guillory
  • Jason Aaron
  • Tom Feister
  • Nathan Edmondson
  • Jim McCann
  • Mike Raicht, Brian Smith & Charles P. Wilson III
  • Adam Withers & Comfort Love
Our live guest this month is Jeff Lemire, the multiple award-winning writer and artist of the Essex County trilogy as well as the new Animal Man and Frankenstein titles from DC Comics. We'll be discussing Sweet Tooth, Volumes 1 and 2 in a special Book Club session on September 27, 2011. (See more on that right here.)

If you want to make comics, write or draw 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!
