Join comic designer Etienne Kubwabo for two workshops and learn how to create your own superhero! 

Day 1 (Saturday 7 November 11am-1pm): Etienne will start off the workshop with an illustrated talk about the inspiration for his own comic book, the film Black Panther. He will also tell participants about his other inspirations - legends such as the American comic book writer Stan Lee. Etienne will then guide the participants to imagine and create their own superheroes - how to develop a character, their backstories, a character’s look, powers and storyline. 

Day 2 (Sunday 15 November 11am-1pm): Participants will share their superhero ideas, their inspirations, their choice of powers, the storyline and setting. Etienne will then discuss his new comic book set in Glasgow - Beats of War.

Etienne Kubwabo is a filmmaker and DJ from Glasgow who moved to Scotland 10 years ago from the Democratic Republic of Congo. In 2012, Etienne joined Clydebank College to study Film and Communication and holds a degree from Glasgow Caledonian University. He has directed multiple music videos for artists in Scotland, Sweden and Belgium. Etienne has directed the children’s show Sho-time, as well as documentary Scotland’s Memoir, and is currently working on a new documentary entitled We are Scotland, featuring young creatives in Scotland. In 2020, he created and released Scotland’s first-ever black superhero comic book, Beats of War.
