Beyond the Neon and on to the Page!
Come join us at Clark County Library on November 5 to see Jean Marie moderate this candid discussion with comic creators Donovan Petersen, Joel Stokes, and Gina Parham about the agony and the ecstasy of creating comics in a city that is both a pop-culture powerhouse, but also notorious for ignoring its local creative scene. How do you meet your fellow creators? What works and what doesn't for creating and getting your stuff out there (and published!) in a city that's 24/7? How can you join your fellow creators in making comics? Look for "Beyond the Neon and on to the Page" on the programming schedule from 11 a.m. - 11:50 a.m. in the classroom.
