The Magnificent One Day Comic Book Factory

Panel: Andy Luke, Patrick Brown and Paul J Holden
Time: 11.00 am (Castle Black), 11.30 am (Dragonpit)

Three local comic book creators challenge TitanCon members to write, draw and produce an exclusive convention comic book, with proceeds going to Action Cancer.

The workshop starts off with Andy Luke's presentation on making quality comics quickly, self-publishing and creative property. Then everyone will come downstairs to a table in the back corner of the Exhibition Centre to get a page or two produced in an hour, with professionals Paddy Brown and PJ Holden on hand to offer advice and encouragement. When the clock stops, it's pens down. Volunteers can assist Andy as he prints and binds to make a finished work over the following hours, and help out with the distribution of the comic book towards the end of the day.

Proceeds raised from sale of the work go to Action Cancer. Keep an eye on the TitanCon Facebook group and Andy-Luke.com in September for more details.
