Mira Loma Highschool Students prepare to become the next generation of Comic Book creators

Each year Scattered Comics creators have the honor of attending a special comic book creating event at Mira Loma High School. This year the honor will go to James Burton (Damage Inc.) who will be sharing advice, tips, and encouragement to the students this Friday, February 17th 2017 from10am-11am. Speaking to both the creative writing class as well as artists that will team up with them to produce their very own comic books.

Students will have a chance to really pick the mind of Burton, as well as their teacher, Keith Carmona, (Also comic creating star on “Blank“) on drafting, penciling, inking, and other finer aspects of comic book writing and creating.

Once the students finished their works, James Burton will return a few weeks later to look over and give feedback to several presenters as well as completed projects. The advice and feedback is welcomed by the students with some now considering perusing this medium for their stories.

This is the 6th year Ms. Char and Mr. Carmona have collaborated on this project at Mira Loma High School, and the 4th year Scattered Comics, has been involved in guest speaking and critiquing future artists and writers. Possibly the next big names in future Scattered Comics.

    I really appreciate such a kind write up. I’m so excited to be going to Mira Loma to share something I love, and how others can get there.
