Please take a minute and let us know via this survey if you’d be on board!

2015.07.26 – Comic Book Master Class with Greg Pak in NYC

By Greg Pak

This Sunday afternoon, I’ll be leading a comic book master class at the Museum of Chinese in America as part of the Asian American International Film Festival! It’ll be a blast — I’ll go over all aspects of comic book making and give out free books, Kingsway West posters, and ABC Disgusting stickers. Grab your tickets here: https://mocanyc.obsres.com/Info.aspx?EventID=7 

Here’s the description:

For over a decade, Greg Pak has been writing acclaimed comic books featuring icons like the Hulk, Batman, Superman, and Storm — as well as creator-owned books and Kickstarter breakout hits like Code Monkey Save World and the Princess Who Saved Herself.
In this in-depth, practical master class, Pak will dive into the nuts and bolts of comic book making, using the 22 year development process of his newest creator-owned comic book as a case study. Topics will include:
  • The creative storytelling challenges and practical business considerations of moving from filmmaking to writing comics.
  • The huge joys of bringing Asian American and other diverse characters to life in comics.
  • The step-by-step work of making a comic book, from concept to story to script to art to publishing, promotion, and audience building.
  • The specific challenges of funding and publishing independent comics in the digital age — both via Kickstarter and traditional publishers.
Also featuring nifty comics-related giveaways and never-before-revealed sneak peeks from Pak’s secret, new creator-owned work!
Admission:
$12 – Regular
$7 – Student/SR
Free – ACV & MOCA Members
Tickets Available here: https://mocanyc.obsres.com/Info.aspx?EventID=7
