Just wanted to post a last minute alert that the new CREATING COMICS CLASS is starting tomorrow, Saturday, March 28, at 2pm.

Writers join and learn everything they need to know about becoming a comics writer, how to find and work with an artist, and finish the class having written a short comics script.

Artists learn about visual storytelling, sequential art, and finish the class with a 10-page minicomic that they’ve written and drawn.

For more information and to sign up, go here!


Don’t forget that zineMelt, the mini fest of zines, minicomics, and DIY stuff is happening this Saturday from 11am to 4pm in the back parking lot of the store.  Last time there were great artists, writers, and makers all there to sell, sign, and talk about their creations and this time will be no different.  There are a few last minute tables available so if you want to get one, contact Aristotle @zinemelt with a direct message on Twitter.
