iFanboy Making Comics Podcast #1 – Start Writing

Show Notes

Running Time: 00:14:13

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.)

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.
