92Y and Archie Comics Collaborate on a New Comic Book Class for Kids

92Y and Archie Comics are collaborating on a new, online comic book class for kids, “Create Your Own Comic Book,” featuring legendary and award-winning Archie writer/artist, Dan Parent, as the instructor.   

In the four-week class, kids ages 9-13 will learn to draw, write, and create their own comic book— and explore Archie Comics’ iconic characters, Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica, Josie, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, and more. Participants will familiarize themselves with the characters and style via copies of the comic book.  

The class, offered at $200, is the latest addition to 92Y’s Virtual Afterschool program, which was launched in September; it brings together two organizations with New York roots.

The online class kicks off on January 14, 2021.
