Stan Prokopenko, the founder of Proko, expressed his enthusiasm for the collaboration, saying, “It’s been great to work with Marvel Comics on this course. This is the first time our students can utilize such compelling characters and stories and it really makes this course unique and special. Teaming up with their artists has let us make something unlike we’ve ever done before. Getting so many professionals in the industry to the Proko Studio has meant we could cover more than what a single instructor could bring to the table. I think it’ll really help our students make better art and better comics that will give artists the chance to bring their own stories and comics to life.”
