Make Comics #28 – Find Your Voice

Show Notes

Rob is a young writer who is worried about finding his “voice” as a comic book scripter; that je ne sais quois that instantly identifies a write to his or her fans. How can you get there? Is it important? Do we all need to just be a little more patient? All this and more as Josh Flanagan and Andy Schmidt, finally back from a little break, help find the voice.

Running Time: 00:14:30

  1. Thanks for answering my email guys it waa really useful advice. Ive found the answer to many of the queries when it comes to writing and art is to just keep going and not stop. Coupled with studying good examples by good artiats/writers it seems you quickly fund that progression and voice. Thanks for the encouragment to not worry but to keep on going
