Special Edition Podcast

Making Comics #1 – Start Writing

Show Notes

It’s the first podcast of a new show on Making Comics! We’ve teamed with Andy Schmidt of Comics Experience to bring you a weekly dose of advice on breaking into and making comics! Andy is the founder of the online comic book school, 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.

The first episode deals with, appropriately, where to start if you want to write comics. (Hint: it involves writing.)

Running Time: 00:14:13

If you’re interested in going further, you can check out Comics Experience, where they offer live, online courses in writing, drawing, coloring, and lettering comics, as well as a workshop community, where creators can interact with and get feedback from other creators.



Get Involved

Doing the podcast is fun and all, but let's be honest, listening to the 2 of us talk to each other can get repetitive, so we look to you, the iFanboy listeners to participate in the podcast! "How can I get in on the fun?" you may ask yourself, well here's how:

  • E-Mail us at contact@ifanboy.com with any questions, comments or anything that may be on your mind.

Please don't forget to leave your name and where you're writing from and each week, we'll pick the best e-mails to include on the podcast!


  1. Very cool. Comics Experience is awesome, and this is yet another reason to love iFanboy. Can’t wait to get home tonight and listen to this.

  2. awesome, this was really helpful. can’t wait for next week’s lesson. Hopefully I can get the writing down…………learn to read, then get the writing down.

  3. This is a great idea for a podcast, and one I’m glad to have as a resource. Glad to know I’m already doing the first step right!
