A group for anyone who wants to make comics or is already making comics and wants to make them with other people around sometimes. We'll get together, bring stuff to draw, collaborate if you want to, share advice, or just sit quietly and absorb the energy. Open to all ages, all skill levels.
Join us again at Radstorm on October 26th from 1 to 3 PM! People who want to hang out and work on comics can do so; you can come ask questions about making comics; or you can just sit quietly in a corner if that is what you want to do. There’s no charge for the meetup, but please bring your own materials if you plan on working on something.
This will also be a special “collation party” meetup where we assemble and distribute the second issue of our group comics zine, Proxima! So if you are a contributor and want to pick up your copy or if you want to snag one of the extras, come help us put it together and celebrate the launch!
If you plan on contributing something to the issue whether you can make it to the meetup or not, that is fine too - we'll make sure you get a copy. But you must get your stuff to Scott by the 24th! A limited number of colour pages are available, give Scott a heads up if you want to do stuff in colour. Finally, we always need covers for the zine too, so if you want to contribute one (or an illustration that can be used for one), let Scott know.
Guests are welcome, including kids, but you are responsible for them. If you bring someone who is too young to look after themselves and make their own way home in case of emergency, please plan on staying at the meetup with them.
Even if you can’t make it to this or any other meetup, keep an eye on the message boards for the group – we try to keep it updated with relevant events, links, news about our publishing efforts and more. The boards are not easy to find on the site but you can go straight to them here:
Let me know if you have any questions or concerns beforehand, otherwise hope to see you there!
