The podcast by indie comics creators for indie comics creators diversifies!
First up, a few announcements — Nick and the AudioShocker will be in the Podcast Arena at NYCC 2011! Dan’s gonna be there too, using his glorious Comic Book Pitt press pass to get the latest scoops from the con floor!!!
BUT WAIT! There’s more! This Friday, Sept 9th, will be the first monthly B-Movie Craft Night at Assemble in Pittsburgh. It’s the brainchild of Shawn and Nina Barbuto. Also, shoutout to the upcoming PodCamp Pittsburgh event.
TODAY’S TOPIC: Representing different kinds of characters in your comics. Our discussion is inspired by Pierce Johnson, who asked us to tackle this topic.
It’s an in depth discussion about displaying diversity on the page without resorting to stereotypes or character cliches. We discuss character development, dialogue, depiction, features, coloring, and taking inspiration from real life.
NEXT: Our friend Wayne Wise joins us to discuss his new novels and his body of comics work!
