Go inside comics with “The Making of Heroes”

bookjacket for How to Draw Comic Heroes by Aaron Sautter

“Sometimes superheroes are born, sometimes they are made. Sometimes they make themselves. Sometimes all it takes is will.” ― Anne Ursu

Do you have an idea for a superhero, or a whole team of superheroes, just waiting to be put on paper?

Learn the basics of comic book creation and begin making your creative ideas come to life as part of “The Making of Heroes” at 2 p.m. Tuesday, June 9, at the Tecumseh Public Library.

Jeff Provine, Oklahoma adjunct professor, says “We will look at things like political cartoons and comic strips and then build it all up to comic books. We will kind of run through things, talk about characters and plots, protagonists, setting, how it’s all laid out and then get down to the barebones mechanics.”

Members of the Oklahoma Comic Creators will also be present to assist with the drawing side of comic book creation.
