Kids Make Comics!!!!
Aw Yeah Comics in Skokie, IL. is proud to announce the very 1st Annual KIDS MAKE COMICS DAY! Saturday, July 28th, Art Baltazar and Franco Aureliani (the Eisner & Harvey Award winning team behind DC's Tiny Titans and Superman Family Adventures), will be in the store from 10am to 5pm, teaching kids how to make comic books. The store will provide paper, pencils, crayons, and markers, and the pair will sit down and show kids the process of making comic books. From story to art, kids will get a hands on approach with creators working in the industry, and hopefully spark a life long interest in our medium. 

What started as idea for our store event has progressed. We now invite any comic store, around the world, to join in the fun. Become a venue, provide the basic materials, and speak to creators of all kinds to see if they would be willing to share their time, knowledge, and passion for comics with enthusiastic youth. Our intent is for this to become a yearly, widespread event on the scale of Free Comic Book Day and 24 Hour Comic Day. Our Facebook page is already up, as is our Twitter feed. A more permanent website, that will list each participating store and creator, is in the works, and will be finished soon. 

In the meantime, if any store or creator has any questions, ideas, or comments, please feel free to send the

The process of growing our industry is carried out on numerous levels, but most importantly getting children involved in creating and reading comics. This helps ensure that our beloved industry stays healthy for generations to come.
