Here’s how it all began–with my Comic Book Bootcamp course designed to teach you skills you need to create your own comics, graphic novel or webcomic! This intensive seven weeks workshop is an essential Comics 101 course for any level of ability. I will teach you layout, storytelling, anatomy, scripting, panel transitions, dialogue, plotting, inking, background and cover design, and the basic language of sequential art itself. It is the perfect entry level intensive for anyone interested in working in comics.

Drawing skills are not essential and this is a course for both writers and artists.

A cover is not simply a drawing, it’s a conversation with your potential reader.  It’s one-part advertising, one-part introduction, and a whole mess of parts involving content, composition, style, and the needs of the readers and retailers.

Arguably, the cover is the single most important element of a comic book business, and is often the most overlooked.  This new course is a greatly expanded version of the 90 minute cover lecture Ty has given in his Bootcamp Level 1, class, including elements and lessons never taught at the Bootcamp before!!
