COMICS MAKING is a unique take on comics and touches on subjects that are near and dear to the heart of comics makers and educators, alike. Get this for the NERD in your life — even if that nerd is you! Big things can come in small packages — maybe this is one of them!
An idiosyncratic, pocket-sized book, COMICS MAKING features a collection of essays on subjects such as teaching during the pandemic, vintage comics, printing, a history of lettering in comics, and a look at comics swipes. There’s also a practical guide to making vintage-looking comics using digital tools.
COMICS MAKING also documents seven years of programs, workshops and exhibitions developed as part of the Comic Art Teaching and Study Workshop (CATS) at Houston’s Rice University. Associate Professor of Art and founder of CATS, Christopher Sperandio has worked as an artist for more than 30 years, first as a pioneer in the field of Social Practice, and later as a contemporary artist working in the medium of comics. His 2002 collaborative work “Modern Masters” was the first comic book to be co-published by DC Comics and the Museum of Modern Art/PS1 and presented as an artwork in the exhibition space.
Peppered throughout the book are glimpses of Sperandio’s own practice, including a five-page comic originally produced in 2020 for Latvia’s top comics publisher, the Eisner-nominated kuš! komikss.
