DeConnick, Amanat, Brisson -- All February Guests on the Creators Workshop!

In February, we'll have two great live, online sessions at the Creators Workshop: a Book Club discussion of Captain Marvel with writer Kelly Sue Deconnick, and Marvel editor Sana Amanat...

AND a Workshop session with Ed Brisson discussing the crafts of writing and lettering, as well as his experiences working with Image and on his new mini-series, Comeback!

On Tuesday February 12, 2013 at 9pm Eastern Time, we'll be discussing Captain Marvel with writer Kelly Sue Deconnick and Marvel editor Sana Amanat.

In Captain Marvel, the "mightiest" of Earth's Mightiest Heroes is back! Ace pilot. Legendary Avenger. One hundred percent pure bad-^&*. Carol Danvers has a new name, a new mission - and all the power she needs to make her own life a living hell. Witness Captain Marvel in blazing battlefield action that just may change the course of history!

Kelly Sue has worked in the comic book industry for the last decade, writing comics for Marvel such as Osborn: Evil Incarcerated, Rescue, and Sif, as well as Richard Castle's Deadly Storm, with co-writer Brian M. Bendis, for Marvel & ABC.

She also has adapted many manga titles into English, including the English scripts for Kare First Love, Black Cat, Sexy Voice and Robo, and Blue Spring. She lives in Portland with her husband, writer Matt Fraction, and their kids.

Sana was an editor at Virgin Comics, before joining Marvel Comics to edit their "Ultimates" line in 2009.

Recently, she has edited Marvel titles such as Hawkeye, Castle, Dark Tower, Ultimate Comics Spider-Man, Ultimate Comics Iron Man, and Ultimate Comics Ultimates as well as Captain Marvel. She was educated at Columbia University and resides in New York City.


Then, on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 9pm Eastern Time, we'll be joined by writer/letterer Ed Brisson!

By day, Ed is a professional comic book letterer. He has lettered numerous comic books, including recent titles from Image such as Debris, Hell Yeah, Peter Panzerfaust, Prophet and The Secret History of D.B. Cooper.

By night, he hones his craft as a writer, on projects like his online crime comic series, Murder Book, which was nominated for a 2011 Joe Shuster Award, and his new miniseries from Image/Shadowline, Comeback.

Comeback is a 5 issue mini-series which debuted in November 2012. It tells a tale about a company called Reconnect that can bring back a lost loved by going back into the past. But since time travel is illegal, it comes with a high cost. And when one team member finds himself on the run, he could end up trapped in the past or potentially, dead.

Ed has been creating comics in one form or another since the early 90's and currently lives just outside of Vancouver, BC with his wife and daughter.

We'll be discussing the crafts of writing and lettering with Ed, as well as his experiences working with Image and on his new mini-series!


We're looking forward to two great discussions with our guests!

There's still time to join us at the Creators Workshop before these live sessions. We hope to see you there.

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!

  2. Dental Financing is a specialized financial solution designed to assist individuals in managing the cost of their dental treatments. This service allows patients to receive the dental care they require while providing them with the flexibility to pay for it over an extended period.

    By offering affordable monthly payment plans, dental financing ensures that individuals can access the necessary dental procedures without having to compromise their oral health due to financial constraints. This option not only alleviates the immediate financial burden but also allows patients to prioritize their dental well-being without any unnecessary delays.
