Patreon Launch – Comic Book Study Guides

Okay, I’m now officially in the business of making Comic Book Study Guides

YOU CAN SUPPORT MY PATREON HERE FOR THE FIRST SEASON OF THIS DEEP THINKING RESOURCE

RKL Patreon 1

I’m excited.

I want to see comics taught in more classes, I want people thinking more deeply about what they read. I want to guide people to bigger questions and themes, but ultimately I want them seeking these things out and finding them without me.

These Comic Book Study Guides are documents that offer up guides for discussion and rich analysis, as well as some specific tasks students/readers can complete.

Support at the basic tier and you get two guides a month for $1.50 each.

I’ll also create one podcast episode a month unpacking one of those Study Guides and what’s in it, so that could also be a decent teaching/thinking resource.

I’ll open up my Comic Script PDF Library to backers, and I’m also offering a One Page Script Commission where I’ll type/print a one page script and mail it to you, so this is for those who really want to support and give me something to chew on.

But if you just want the guides, well, they’re affordable for a reason – hook in. I’m just making these for one year, a full season, and come what may after that.

If you support, or share the link, or do anything that sends good waves to me, and good education about comics into the world, then I greatly appreciate it.

Comic Book Study Hall Patreon – Coming Soon!

I’m writing Study Guides for comics worthy of being studied, because everyone should study comics.

I’m launching a Patreon where you can get 2 Comic Book Study Guides each month for the next year, and I’m hoping to be able to add a podcast to the campaign you can use in the classroom.

I love comics, and I love teaching them, and I’d love nothing more than to see some more classrooms around the world use this opportunity to push a few more quality pages in front of students and those with wide open minds.

This is 100% aimed at teachers, but I also know as a reader and someone who just likes to study, these guides would be my jam anyway. I want these to be used for brains in flight, and that isn’t always in the classroom, it can be solo as you hone your craft.

I’ve written well ahead and have got guides for works from the likes of Fraction, Telgemeier, Rosenberg, and more – not to mention my own work, because I’m unbiased like that – you can buy the Guide for ETERNAL here – and buy the Guide for STAIN THE SEAS SCARLET here – but they’ll be much cheaper in the Patreon :]

I’ve been online for a decade now thinking about comics and writing and talking about them, and now I want to give something concrete out into the world.

The Patreon should launch next week. I think you’re gonna dig it, so be sure to get in and don’t miss a guide [it might even expose you to some ace new stuff to find] and if you know others who would use this in the classroom/life, then send ’em my way. I’ll help them out.

Here’s to a quality season of giving back to comics for the next generation.

ETERNAL Study Hall Guide

I have finally done something in that cross section of comics/teaching/learning/process/nerdy/insane in which I desire to live.

I have written a Study Hall Guide for ETERNAL, and you can buy the digital copy right here!

This guide helps you unpack the comic I created with Eric Zawadzki, Dee Cunniffe, Courtney Menard, and Dan Hill through Black Mask earlier this year.

I want it to be used by teachers, but also by interested readers, and by people who want to write and are considering how much thematic stuff to layer into their work.

I’ve really enjoyed making this study guide, and there will plenty more to come. Hold onto your butts, because we aren’t finished delving into the curriculum of comics just yet. But I hope you’ll start with me here, and maybe have a little educational fun.
