Take advantage of this rare opportunity to learn the secrets of making great comics from one of the acknowledged masters of the medium. [MAKE THIS LINE BOLD and in a COLOR:] The workshop is invaluable not just for artists, but for writers, editors, graphic designers and anyone else involved in, or simply passionate about, visual storytelling.The workshop will take place in two 4-hour segments, the first on the evening before Wizard World New Orleans, the second in the morning and early afternoon before the convention kickoff on Thursday afternoon.**Class is limited to 15 students.
