The course will be taught by former Marvel and IDW Editor and writer, Andy Schmidt. During his time at Marvel, Andy worked on nearly every major character in the Marvel canon, and edited hit titles such as X-Factor, the Annihilation saga, Alias, and more. At IDW, he managed major franchises like GI Joe and Transformers. He is also the author of the Eagle Award-winning book, The Insider's Guide to Creating Comics and Graphic Novels, published by Impact Books.
Not only will you learn comic book writing from a pro, but the course is packed with practical, real-world advice on the industry and "breaking in" to help you pursue your career in comics!
That's why Comics Experience alum, Nick Spencer, recently tweeted:
"For all aspiring comic pros asking for advice on craft/breaking in, I once again highly recommend Andy Schmidt's @ComicExperience courses."A few years ago, Nick had to move to New York City to take Comics Experience classes (check out his guest blog here to read that tale). But you don't have to move!
Our courses are now offered LIVE, online, and you can attend from wherever you live. You'll be able to see your instructor and his desktop, interact with your classmates, and discuss your classwork in real time. And you'll be able to communicate with your classmates all week long in a special, dedicated online forum for just you and your class.
But only 2 more people will be able to join this session, and it will be months before we can offer another section. If you've been thinking about taking this class, sign up now before we sell out!
