Here are the posts from our first Comic Book School challenge. (Scroll all the way down for the original rules.)

Comic Book School Make Comics Challenge #1:

Share an independent comic book, webcomic, or other comic-related project that you think we should check out. The idea here is to help people to discover indie comics that you enjoy. Your tweets and posts will help bring attention to interesting indie comics.

Rules:

  • Add both of these hashtags: #MakeMineIndie and #ComicBookSchool
  • Tag us on Twitter and Instagram at @Comicbookschool
  • Tell us why you think we should check this out.
  • Share something that is actually available.
  • Email a link to your post at buddy@comicbookschool.com. (If you have posted multiple, send me a link to your favorite one.)

The Comic Book School “Coalition of the Willing” launched with a video chat last night to discuss how we can extend the spirit and enthusiasm of our panels at comic book conventions, even after the cons are over. A group of us met on Google Meet to discuss ways of nurturing a community of people passionate about the craft and business of making comics.

We decided to start with a 1-week social media challenge, which you are invited to participate in. Yes, you.
