Mike Baron is the creator of Nexus (with artist Steve Rude) and Badger two of the longest lasting independent superhero comics. Nexus is about a cosmic avenger 500 years in the future. Badger, about a multiple personality one of whom is a costumed crime fighter. First/Devils Due is publishing all new Badger stories. Baron has won two Eisners and an Inkpot award and written The Punisher, Flash, Deadman and Star Wars among many other titles. Comics are movies on paper, and like most fiction, they are a dynamic narrative with a beginning, a middle, and an end. I will discuss the importance of story, pacing, and art, and how it all works together. You start with a script, proceed to layouts, finished pencils, inks, lettering, and coloring.
