Girl Scouts Making Comics @ Isotope

Since 2011 the Isotope has been teaching our own brand of comic making courses for adult students in our Isotope University classroom. To kick off the new year we decided to team up with the San Francisco Girl Scouts to get the knowledge of the sequential arts to next generation of comic creators. What better way to get the kind of comics we want to see in our industry by the kind of creators we want more of?

We sent two of our favorite local cartoonists Jamaica Dyer and Kaytea Petro to a recent meeting to get the girls started thinking about the possibilities and followed up last Sunday with an intensive comic making course expertly taught by DOCTOR LOLLIPOP creator Kelly Martin here at the Isotope. This was such a fun event to volunteer our Isotope University classroom for!

I was *blown away* to hear about all the hilarious, creative, and downright amazing books the girls are working on. Quite literally, they were some of the best comic pitches I have heard (from kids or adults) in my 15 years in this industry.

More classes for these girls are planned, we can’t wait to see these books when they’re finished! Our sincerest thanks to our teachers Kelly Martin, Jamaica Dyer and Katie Petro for ensuring the future of comics is filled with awesomeness!

Doctor Lollipop @ APE AFTERMATH!

This, dear friends, is an event I’ve been wanting to host for two very long years and finally that day has come!

In honor of the Alternative Press Expo this weekend we’re kicking our traditional annual batch up a notch… DOCTOR LOLLIPOP style!

Ms. Kelly Martin is one of our all-time favorite San Francisco comic creators and her DOCTOR LOLLIPOP comic fills our hearts with sparkles and smiles. And we couldn’t stop bouncing for joy we heard that the amazing people behind one of the best cartoons ever ADVENTURE TIME were going to be adapting her comic with full participation from Ms. Martin as an animated feature for CARTOON HANGOVER!

Kelly got to help be part of the casting process and we couldn’t be more happy she helped pick the amazing Rose McGowan as the voice of Coco!
