Hosted annually by the Cultural Office of the City of Erlangen - Department Festivals and Cultural Programmes, the weeklong workshop aims to offer a unique training to already experienced comic artists – illustrators and scenarists alike.

Comics of the participants
In each seminar a great variety of exciting comic works are created, which usually deal with a common topic. In exchange, the artists and authors develop and work together on their comics. You can get an impression with beautiful examples here.
Participation at the workshop is limited to 20 comic artists who have already established a certain routine in their work and show advanced illustration and storytelling skills. The workshop is no introduction to graphic literature and comics but aims to develop and refine already existing skills and accomplishments.
