Horror Comics!

Come venture into the depths of darkness where things creep, crawl, ooze, and uncover your worst fears. Learn how to write and draw horror at our new Horror Comic workshop with Emily Lewis! We will go over examples of different types of horror, common tropes, character design, and how to write and draw a compelling horror story.
