Intro to Comics and “YARD SALE”…

This summer marks the third time I have taught my Intro to Comics class. It is a ton of fun to teach, and an intense amount of work.

We read 6 graphic novels and snippets of comics from over 30 different artists. Each student also makes 6 mini comics and 21 daily comics. This summer 7 students made over 140 comics!

This class is also special because it marks the first time we published a compilation comic called “YARD SALE”. It features a two-page comic from each student and your truly. It is free, and at this point, will be offered at Copacetic Comics in Pittsburgh! Hopefully, “YARD SALE” will become an annual publication.


Intro students works hard on the last day of class, copying, folding, collating and stapling “YARD SALE”


Piles of “YARD SALE” ready for your enjoyment!
