Ever thought about making your own comics, but don’t know where to start? Join comic creator Ben Bishop (Lost Trail, The Aggregate, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles…) LIVE through the Island Readers & Writers Facebook page for a four part crash course on making comics. Together with Ben, you’ll learn how to take a single exciting, real life (or made up) moment, transform it from an idea, to a script to a series of panels, and finally into a finished comic page. Each class will leave you with some homework to take away and complete on your own, to be dissected and discussed in the following class. When it’s all said and done, you’ll have a whole new set of skills to not only turn your ideas into words, words into panels, panels into pages, but also pages into full on comic books.
