We mentioned that the planned Local Comic Shop Day event from ComicPRO for November had been engineered with a "No Hastings" clause.
Well, Hastings seems to have noticed, and have engineered their own series of days instead with Valiant Entertainment.
Hastings will be live steaming a Q&A with Valiant to all of their 140 stores every Satirday from September the 19th to October 10th, entitled "The Craft of Comics".
Each installment of "The Craft of Comics" will feature a live tutorial with an all-star Valiant creator as they detail the practice and principles underlying one of the four key disciplines involved in the creation of comics: writing, penciling, inking, and coloring.
Each Hastings guest will receive a free exclusive "The Craft of Comics" workbook produced by Valiant Entertainment to create and refine their skills over the course of the four-week workshop. Inspired guests can then enter "The Craft of Comics" contest, where one lucky contestant will emerge victoriously and earn immortal bragging rights by having his or her work published in an upcoming Valiant comic.
Creators schedule to stream live during the workshop include:
