I'm curious if anyone here wants to learn how to make comics or manga? I know that certain schools in the Philippines teach comic/komiks ( call it whatever) like UP, Ateneo, St Benilde, and First Academy, but really? is there a demand for students who want to learn comics? I know comics like Trese are popular here but it's hardly an industry. Anyway, local komiks thread I guess. Disclaimer: I teach a how to make comics, manga, and graphic novel workshop in Manila (https://www.facebook.com/TintinPComicsWorkshop) and I'm trying to gauge if anyone actually wants to learn the stuff. It's my dream to create a comic and art/ cartooning school here. Should I be approaching parents with teenage kids who are anime and manga and comics fans? Or should I be trying to talk to older komiks art students?
And what are your favorite books on how to make comics/ how to draw?
Here's another really great book about making comics, but it's less about storytelling theory and more about the practical applications, like pens, how to draw, etc. It's a classroom in a book ( and i use its lessons extensively). However, McCloud's Making Comics is more interesting from a storytelling point of view.
