NYCC 2018: Photos from Educational Panels on Making Comics

New York Comicon (NYCC) 2018 is officially on the books. We gathered in New York City to share creative ideas with the next generation of comic book creators. This year the educational panels were featured on Thursday, but we still managed to pack the room to talk about making comics.

Thank you to Katie Ruark of ReedPop for giving us the stage at NYCC to bring you these educational panel. Without ReedPop’s support, none of this would be possible.

Thank you to all of my panelists. They contribute their time and knowledge to give the best educational experience for creators just like you.

And, of course, thank you to my hard-working team at here at Comic Book School. All of your pre-show and at-show work makes our panels run smoothly. Thank you to the friends who took vacation days to join me on this annual adventure including Janet Scalera, Nicole Scalera, Danielle Scalera, Liam Devine, James McGill, Glenn Herdling, Marcelo Ferreira, Michael Dolce and the rest of ya’ll.
