Author is Residence is Comic Genius!

17 May 2017

We are delighted to have author Shane McCarthy in the Senior School this week as our Author In Residence. Shane is a freelance writer whose work has been published internationally by DC Comics, Marvel Comics and IDW Publishing to name a few.

Over the years he has written many comics including Batman Legends of the Dark Knight, Detective Comics, (starring Batman), Dark X-Men, Daredevil, Star Wars and Transformers: All Hail Megatron.

When not delving into the topsy turvy world of comics, Shane (also a professional dancer) can be found teaching and dancing the ‘Lindy Hop’ all around the world as well as at his Swing It Swing Dance School in five locations around Perth.

Shane will be working with English classes in Years 7-10 throughout the week where he will discuss storytelling through the lens of writing comic books, the art of creative writing, the importance of believable characters, energetic scenes and the art of the cliff-hanger.
