Contributing is your only way of getting your hands on a copy of this sure-to-be awesome brick of a book. Thanks for helping us make it real!

Thanks Providence Phoenix!


The Providence Phoenix wrote an awesome little article in it's "Best Of..." issue.  

"You may have stumbled into a PCC gathering if you've walked into a Providence Community Library branch on a weekday afternoon and seen an energetic man gesticulating excitedly before a group of eight- to-12-year-olds armed with pencils and workbooks. This is the formula PCC has followed since its founding (with the help of a Rhode Island State Council on the Arts grant) in October 2010. Kids enroll in the PCC — free of charge — for a month of twice-weekly after-school workshops. During the sessions they learn about comics-making by filling out character sheets ("Name," "Height," "Weight," "Homebase," "Powers/Abilities," "Weaknesses," etc.), playing sketching games with names like "Face Factory," and brainstorming with visiting artists."
