CA – Graphic Novel Creating Workshop


Join Eisner nominated, New York Times bestselling comic creator Nick Dragotta (East of West) for a two-part comic book making workshop for adults in support of San José Public Library’s Graphic Novel Making Contest. No matter what your skill level making good comics starts with smart design.

Nick will discuss the craft of comics and all you need to get started telling your own stories. Attendees will leave with a basic knowledge of the comics and look at the different applications of the medium and how they can be applied to the stories you want to tell? Attendees will leave with an assignment to an original eight-page comic. Rules and information about the Graphic Novel Making Contest will be provided during this program.

During the second session, attendees will share their latest creations with the group and get feedback from Nick on their comics with the hopes of polishing an entry for the Graphic Novel Making Contest.

Nick Dragotta is the artist and co-creator, along with writer Jonathan Hickman, of the breakout hit of 2013, EAST OF WEST.  Dragotta and Hickman made a name for their creative team previously on FF at Marvel Comics, where Dragotta also worked on the landmark run of X-Statix with Peter Milligan and many other of the top Marvel characters such as Captain America, Spider-Man, the X-Men and others.

Space is limited. To register, call 408-808-3068 or visit the library’s information desk.
