Valiant Comics is teaming up with multimedia store Hastings to offer Comics College, a series of exclusive video workshops featuring Valiant creators and shown at Hastings stores across the country. The workshops begin on January 30, and run for four consecutive Saturdays. The instructors are Fred Van Lente, Robert Venditti, Jody Houser, and David Baron. Hastings ran a similar series last year called The Craft of Comics, but promises that this one will delve deeper into the mechanics of the industry.
If you live near a Hastings store and want to learn a little bit about making comics from the creators behind some of the best books going, then I have some pretty excellent news. Starting on Saturday, September 19, Hastings is teaming up with Valiant Entertainment to offer a four-week series of in-store workshops called the Craft of Comics, where customers can drop in for a series of live lectures featuring an audience Q&A.
