My name is Dr. Barron Bell, AKA "The Comic Doc" and I am a professor of Art and Graphic Design and a published comic book artist and writer.  The Comic Doc is a blog dedicated to discussing the creative and technical aspects of the art behind comics. 

Our goal is to build a network of artists (illustrators and writers)  from indie to professional who can connect through chat, helpful tips, articles, and interviews to help us all "Level Up" in our craft. 

If you're an aspiring comic book artist, subscribe to our mailing list below and send us some artwork to review for a chance to be highlighted in our blog.  If you're an industry pro and you'd like to be a contributor to The Comic Doc and have a great idea for a tutorial or tips article just send us a message on the ABOUT page.
