The Comics Mastermind™ “Comics Stripped Bare™” series is a creative initiative that works on the presumption that in order to truly understand something you need to pull it apart. Each masterclass will feature a special guest – a master practitioner in a comics art category such as comic books, graphic novels, comic strips or web comics – who will talk about a newly released or favoured book or body of work he or she has worked on. The presenter will deconstruct about half a dozen scenes or a hand picked selection of work—panel by panel. In other words, the focus will be on not only WHAT has been written and illustrated in each panel, but WHY. This series is a remarkable opportunity to learn from the best in the comics business!
