Make Your Own Comics (Usborne Big Pads)
Kids will learn the essentials of drawing comics as they complete the various pages of prompts in this fun book from Usborne. The book starts with explaining the parts of a comic and what they mean, works through basic drawing skills and developing characters, and then proceeds with page after page of creative opportunities to get your ideas on paper (in 6 panels). It looks like a book, but the pages are gummed at the top like a notepad. You can tear off a page to share your art or leave them all together. Some of the prompts include: a pirate adventure, a detective comic, space explorers, jungle animals and a time travel adventure. One-sided pages, 11"x 8.75", 32pgs, pb. ~Sara
