In March - Faith Erin Hicks joins Creators Workshop; Andy Schmidt discusses comic art storytelling & dynamics!

In March, we'll have two great live, online sessions at the Creators Workshop: a Book Club discussion of Friends with Boys with writer/artist Faith Erin Hicks...

AND a Workshop session with former Marvel and IDW Editor Andy Schmidt discussing "Comic Art: Storytelling & Dynamics."


On Tuesday March 12, 2013 at 8pm Eastern Time, we'll be discussing Friends with Boys with writer/artist Faith Erin Hicks .

Friends with Boys is a coming-of-age tale with a spooky twist, about Maggie McKay, who, after an idyllic childhood of homeschooling with her mother and rough-housing with her older brothers, must face the outside world all on her own.

But that means facing high school first. And it also means solving the mystery of the melancholy ghost who has silently followed Maggie throughout her entire life.

Friends With Boys is a 211-page graphic novel published by First Second Books.

A free 20-page preview is available right here.

Faith Erin Hicks is a writer and artist in Halifax, Canada. Her first two graphic novels, Zombies Calling and The War at Ellsmere, were published by SLG Publishing. Most recently, she illustrated First Second’s Brain Camp. Hicks has three brothers and was homeschooled until high school, but has never seen a ghost.

Hicks began drawing comics and putting them on the internet in 1999. Since that time, she's drawn more than 1600 pages of comics including her first online comic, Demonology 101, The Adventures of Superhero Girl, and Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong.


Then, on Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 9pm Eastern Time, we'll have a nuts and bolts comic craft discussion with Andy Schmidt!

Andy will be reviewing artwork -- both classic and more recent -- and discussing what works and what doesn't for comics storytelling.

This will be a session of great value to BOTH artists and writers!

Andy is a former Senior Editor at IDW Publishing, a former Editor at Marvel Comics, and writer of such comics as 5 Days to Die and Challenger Deep.

Andy worked with nearly every major character in the Marvel pantheon during his time there, and edited titles such as X-Men, X-Factor, Alias, Secret War, and the Annihilation saga. At IDW, Andy oversaw both the Transformers and GI Joe franchises.

Andy is also the founder of Comics Experience, which he launched to help educate people who want to make comics, work in the comics industry, or just want to know more about the fantastic medium of comics.


We're looking forward to two great discussions!

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!
