Starting Your Comic Book

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 discuss the various parts of a Comic Book. What’s a comic, what are gutters, panels, cover pages, centerfolds, and credits.

Objectives:

  • Understand basic components of a comic
  • Break down comic and determine guestimated amount of panels

TODAY’S CHALLENGE

PREPARING FOR TOMORROW

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