We have two fantastic guests joining us LIVE at the Comics Experience Creators Workshop soon, and there's still time for you to join us at these online sessions!
For our next live Workshop session on Tuesday, December 20, 2011, we'll be joined by special guest Michael Alan Nelson!
Michael is the writer of the hot new BOOM! comic book, Valen the Outcast, which has been described as an "undead Conan" story filled with sword and sorcery action.
The first issue just debuted on December 7, 2011, even garnering some controversy in the comics media related to burnings of a Joe Jusko variant cover.
Valen the Outcast is a new, ongoing series from BOOM!, but Michael has been writing comic for seven years, having produced over 120 single issues for dozens of series, including 28 Days Later, Hexed, and Fall of Cthulhu.
Michael will be joining us to discuss his path into the industry, his new work on Valen the Outcast, as well as his experiences working on a popular, licensed property like 28 Days Later.
Michael will also be critiquing a winning script, posted in December by a lucky member of the Creators Workshop.
And, we're pleased to announce that on Tuesday, January 10, 2012, writer Scott Snyder, will be joining us for a Creators Workshop Book Club discussion of American Vampire, Volume 1 from Vertigo/DC Comics!
Volume 1 of American Vampire follows two stories: one written by Scott Snyder and the other by Stephen King, with art by Rafael Albuquereque.
In Scott's story, set in 1920's Los Angeles, we follow Pearl, a young woman who is turned into a vampire and sets out on a path of revenge against European Vampires who tortured and abused her.
Scott is the red-hot writer of Batman and Swamp Thing from DC Comics, as well as the horror title Severed from Image.
Join us at the Creators Workshop to take part in these sure-to-be great discussions with Michael and Scott!
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!
