About the event

The Lost and Found Comic Making Show

Robin and Lorenzo will take you on a humorous, mind-expanding creative journey as they share the SIX steps to making incredible comic adventures.

Exploring how to conjure the beginning of a story with just the words ‘Imagine If”, how to create original motivations for heroes and villains, and the strange and entertaining ways that TIME, DETAILS and CULTURE can bring fictional worlds to life. This is the secret sauce to comic making excellence!
