Join us in getting ready for MoComCon 2024, an all day, all ages event celebrating all things comics, graphic novels, and fandoms!

MoComCon 2024 will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2024, at Germantown Library!
19840 Century Blvd., Germantown, MD 20874, 240-777-0110

The mini comic book is a fun format for telling a story in words and pictures.   Using one folded sheet of paper, you will write and illustrate a brief (6-8 page) narrative that can be factual, fictional, or a combination of both.  You will apply various graphic novel storytelling techniques to your comic book.  Come to the workshop with an idea, which can take the form of a story, poem, recipe, daydream…it’s up to you.  Art supplies will be furnished by the library. Registration required. Space is limited. This workshop is in partnership with artist Leila Cabib and funded in part by an Arts in Education Grant from the Maryland State Arts Council.

Un libro cómico miniatura es un formato divertido para contar una historia con palabras e imágenes. Usando una hoja de papel doblada, escribirá e ilustrará una breve narrativa (de 6-8 páginas) que puede ser de hechos reales, ficcional, o una combinación de ambos. Aplicará varias técnicas de narración de novelas gráficas en su libro cómico. Venga a nuestro taller con una idea, que puede ser una historia, un poema, una receta, un sueño...lo que usted quiera. Los materiales de arte serán proporcionados por la biblioteca. Se necesita registrarse. El espacio es limitado. Este taller se ofrece en colaboración con la artista Leila Cabib y está en parte patrocinado por un subsidio del Arts in Education del Marlyand State Arts Council.
