Welcome Welcome

So who are we and what do we do? We are Gangsta Comics. We started as a few people from a Meetup group that decided we wanted to start getting serious about making our own comics and heading to conventions. Some of us got together and decided to go at it together. to be part of a gang of artists. To learn from each other. Critique one another. Through trial and error we have some successes and some failures. We want to share all of that with you. See what we have to offer. A few comics that we have put together, images, tutorials, and even just more information on conventions in Texas. So whether your here for a commission, a lesson, or one of our already made products feel free to hang with the gang.

Convention schedule to be updated soon

We like to keep tabs on about 154 artistic and nerdy events that happen here in Texas. This is the old information. we will start working on updating the list to the most current information.  we slacked a bit during the covid scare. please forgive us.
