Ever wondered how to get started making your own comic? Then this is the workshop for you! Longtime zine-maker/comic creator Sumiko Saulson is here to explain how to create your very own comic zine(s), from the first spark of an idea to the finished product. The workshop includes both instruction and lots of time to work on your comic zine. All supplies are provided. Attendees also get a handout to take home that will guide you (or friends!) through comic zine creation in the future.
