Manga Mondays at Little Island Comics!

Join us for Manga Mondays this winter at Little Island Comics!

We’re excited to invite 10- to 14-year-olds to enrol in local comics creator Eric Kim’s Manga Dojo art workshops, now in their second year. Starting January 21st, the Manga Dojo teaches students how to create and develop their own stories. In five sessions, students will create an anthology of their works and receive a physical copy of the book. They will learn about the fundamentals of storytelling, build upon their drawing skills, and develop an understanding of publishing.

Eric Kim is a professional comic artist and illustrator. His credits include Love as a Foreign Language, Degrassi: The Next Generation Vol. 3, Battle Academy, The Sidesteppers, Streta, and most recently, The Complete Plays of William Shakespeare. He has worked for numerous book and editorial clients across North America as well as Japan. His next book, Billy Smoke, will be coming from Oni Press next year.

The fee for the course is $100 for five classes (materials included), a copy of the anthology produced by the class, as well as participation in a public book launch and gallery showing of the class’s work. The course runs weekly on Mondays from 4:30pm until 6pm, from January 21st through February 25th (no class on the holiday on Feb. 18th!). Simple snacks will be provided. Please contact us at to enrol!
