Special Edition Podcast
Running Time: 00:17:00
If you’re making comics and you’re not familiar with the page turn, then you don’t know the whole story. While it seems simple at first, you realize that the comic book, as an art form, requires a whole different type of planning than a lot of other storytelling methods. You have to know where the page turn moment is going to be, and how to use it effectively. Then again, every single moment can be a page turn if you’re good at it.
Andy Schmidt is the founder of the online comic book school Comics Experience, as well as a former editor at Marvel Comics and IDW Publishing. Josh Flanagan has been working on iFanboy.com, talking, reviewing, and thinking about comics for over a decade, as well as writing and creating some of his own.
If you’re interested in going further, you can check out Comics Experience, where there are plenty of classes available in all the disciplines of comic book creation from writing to drawing to coloring to lettering.
