Web-comics pioneer Dean Haspiel (the Brooklyn artist invented the Act-I-Vate and Trip City online-comics collectives and won an Emmy for Bored to Death‘s title sequence) is teaching an intensive workshop on comics creation at MOCCA. Expect an interactive lecture and in-class assignments, guiding writers and artists from idea to image to a sequential narrative—as well as a personal critique of the result. Haspiel’s work spans existentialist superheroes and semi-autobiography, and he has collaborated with such distinctive talents as Harvey Pekar and Jonathan Lethem. Sharpen your pencils, bring a fresh sketchbook, and prepare to expose what your mind’s eye has been peeping.
