SLG recently revived it's Creator's Studio series, a workshop dedicated to helping aspiring comic book creator's develop their skills and gain a greater appreciation of the craft of comics, with a single day event in March which was highlighted by a live drawing demonstration. "Even though the first event was focused on drawing comics, most of the discussion was on creating a script for an artist" said SLG president Dan Vado " Following up on that event with something focused on writing seemed like a logical progression for the workshops."
