Comic Book Creation: Overview and Purpose

Create your own comic book alongside other artists with the help of an online instructor. Write, draw, and build your own universe. Learn about the parts of the comic. 


Students will collaborate on story and character creation while sharing their own creations. Students will draw their own comic book using tools at home. 


  1. 8.5×11 white printer paper.
  2. Standard size stapler.
  3. Drawing tools: pencil, sharpener, eraser, straight edge. Other personal tools are welcome depending on students’ access to resources.
  4. Digital tools: computer, mouse, keyboard, webcam, mic, printer.


Go at your own pace

Students will be guided through the steps of creating a simple comic book based on individual style and creation. Each week an online guide will provide a one-hour online group setting to help promote teamwork, virtual community, and continue creative growth.
