Operation: Favorite Comic Night
Greetings Allies! To follow up the wonderful turnout last Friday, we'd like to get to know you better by having you bring in your favorite comic book
to share with us! If you don't have your stash of comics close at
hand, try bringing in something from the library that you enjoy.
Friday 9/14 • 6:30 PM • Room 703G
Continue below the cut for more details on what's goin' down this Friday!
Sharing comics means discovering the kinds of stories your peers enjoy and why they enjoy it. It's also a great time to make friends with those that have similar tastes, and potentially expose you to good comics that you haven't read before. We also want to provide a cozy space where you can read comics together.
This Friday our very own lovely professor Keith Mayerson will be giving us a message at the meeting so don't miss it! We'll also do a thorough round of introductions, as well as answer any questions regarding the 8-page minicomic and how it can be printed.
We look forward to seeing what you have to bring!
Be sure to RSVP and spread the word on Facebook!
A Stronger Community
Cartoon Allies' foundation has always lain in the ties that bind the SVA comics community. As the publishing world becomes a crazier place, it's never been more important for our student body to stand united, share their skills and goals, and help build the support network that will keep us strong well beyond graduation.
