New! Comic Book Editing & Project Management Class Open for Enrollment!

Comics Experience is proud to announce we are launching a brand new course on November 10, 2011 -- Comic Book Editing and Project Management! Enrollment is now open!

The new course will be taught by former Marvel and IDW editor, Andy Schmidt.

Andy's techniques and editorial approach have helped craft some of Marvel's biggest events in the last 10 years (Civil War, Annihilation, X-Men: Messiah Complex) as well as brought licensed franchises to new creative heights while at IDW (G.I. Joe, Transformers, and Dungeons & Dragons).

If you want to create great comics, whether self-publishing or working for a comics publisher, this is the course for you!

In this four-week intensive class, you’ll learn how to:
  • find collaborators;
  • manage a budget and time table;
  • bring the best out of your writers and artists;
  • problem solve; and
  • make a professional-looking project that will connect with readers and retailers!

Andy will take a conversational approach to this class that will allow for individualization for every student, while relating a career's worth of experience in a way that will be useful, organized, concise, and fun!

As Andy himself put it on the Creators Workshop forums recently:
"I don't think I've felt this excited for a class in a while (I like new things, so that's not a surprise). But this is going to be very different from my other courses. The structure is different, and the focus is different. This is a real 'behind the scenes' thing that I've never done before."
The class will meet one night a week, starting Thursday, November 10th, 2011, between 9:00 and 11:00 pm EST, for four weeks (11/10, 11/17, 12/1, and 12/8--skipping the week of Thanksgiving).

This is the first time this long requested course has been offered, and we're uncertain when it will be offered again. Spots will go fast, so don't delay if you'd like to enroll!
