Our ever expanding network

So today in the Pronto Universe, we’d like to talk about our expanding network.

An Evening with Nick Lowe

As some may know Pronto was born out of Andy Schmidt’s Comics Experience class. That class includes learning from both DC and Marvel editors. Back in February the DC editor, Mike Siglain, visited us. This July 1st, X-men editor Nick Lowe will come to Pronto to talk about breaking in and giving us his advice on comics in general. Check it out here:
