Chicago Comics is proud to present award-winning comic author Matt Madden to the store for a three hour seminar entitled "Checklist For a A New Comic: A Guide to Getting Started."
On Thursday, August 2nd, Matt Madden will walk you through the many considerations you should keep in mind when you embark on a new comic, whether a one-pager, a webcomic, or a graphic novel. Madden will help you strategize and come up with a working plan for your next project. He will cover a variety of bases, including:: creative block and coming up with ideas, choosing a format and platform that makes sense, setting goals and scheduling your time so that you can reach them, finding an audience and looking for collaborators and/or publishers. So bring some paper and be ready to take notes on your next big (or small) project!
The event begins at 5 and goes until 8. Updates and more information on the event can be seen on our Facebook Event Page:
