More Wizard World Miami
More photos from Wizard World Miami. Sunday brought Michael Golden's class in Storytelling. Always a hit! Our plans are to take a longer version of the class on the road. So....

Michael's tips on storytelling apply to not only sequential art, but to any type of creative medium involving characters and story structure.
