Developing Your Story

Hello Creators! Welcome back to our Comic Book Creation Camp!

Under the Materials tab on the main Course Page, there is a list of recommended supplies for our camp, as well as templates for you to use in your comic book!

What to expect on Zoom: Every day we will have time to share our comic book and give each other feedback. Today we will continue your character sheets by clearly defining your hero and villain’s powers.

Objectives:

  • Continue developing our characters
  • Heroes and Villains

TODAY’S CHALLENGE

For today we will be discussing what makes our characters exciting. Here are some things to think about…

  • What are your comic book character’s names?
  • What are their strengths and weaknesses?
  • Do they have superpowers?
  • How did they get these powers?
  • What would cancel out their powers?
  • What do they look like? Do they wear a costume?

If your hero can start fire, then you’re villain should have the power to easily extinguish the fire with wind, water, or perhaps covering it up.

On the backside of the character sheet, write down the Beginning, Middle and End of your story. Sometimes it helps to start at the end and work your way to the beginning. A good story will have obstacles your hero must work hard to overcome.

PREPARING FOR TOMORROW

We hope you had a great day! Here’s a sneak peak of what we will be learning tomorrow:
