FINAL Comix Creation Classes for Kids in 2020!!!

The Million Year Picnic comic shop is still closed to browsing, but that doesn’t mean we’re not working! We’re doing curbside pick-ups, free local deliveries for orders over $15, and shipping all over the country! AND, our friend Jason Wiser is offering THE FINAL COMIX CREATION CLASS FOR KIDS IN 2020! After this class, there will be NO MORE CLASSES in 2020!

The final Level 2 class will run Monday-Friday, August 17-21, 2020, time TBD. Classes will be recorded if you miss a day! We suggest taking Level 1 as a prerequisite, but it’s not required.

These classes run 5 days a week, 1 hour a day through a Zoom link provided by the teacher for kids age 8 and older. Students can participate through an Internet-connected laptop or tablet, and materials are typically paper, pencil, and pen. All work is optional, but kindness is mandatory!

We are offering this class as a Pay-What-You-Can deal (which includes free). To register, either send the suggested $50 fee (that’s per household, so 1 kid or 5 kids, it’s the same price) to the Million Year Picnic comic book store via PayPal to (but do not email this address as it’s not monitored; you can also use the PayPal button below) OR, simply email to let us know you’d like to register but can’t afford to pay at this time.

(1). Your child’s name
(2). Your child’s age
(3). An email address (to send you the daily Zoom link).

If PayPal doesn’t show you a NOTE field, please email this information to!

(Pay what you can, suggested fee is $50.)

If you have problems with PayPal or need to use a different payment method, please contact us at or call 617-492-6763. Either Tony or Kelly is in the shop every day between 2pm and 6pm (sometimes earlier, sometimes later).

Note that this is a fundraiser for the shop as Jason let’s us keep the bulk of the fees! You’re helping a Black-owned business stay afloat!

If you do not see an email from us by 30 minutes before the start of the first day of class, it might be in your spam folder. Please check, and please email with questions! Jason’s website is
