Imagine Your Story: Comics! July 3

This week in the HLS summer reading program, we are exploring comics and superheroes!

Story Time!

Read Jack and the Box by Art Spiegelman.

Writing Time!

We have already made it to Friday! The weeks are flying by. Here is the last of Dave McDonald’s videos, “Fridge Door Comics.”

I enjoyed watching his videos this week. They gave me some new ideas. I was also happy to hear that Dave McDonald does something that I do. Can you guess what that might be? If you have been in my classroom, I am sure you will know what it is. Here is a clue: He uses something I do as well. Remember how lightly I draw my first sketch?

Go ahead and post your Fridge Door Comic so we can all see what you have been working on this week. Here are our pictures.

Here is the first page of Ella’s comic!

Here are a couple extra videos by Dave McDonald.  

Watch “Inking Your Comics” to learn how to color in your comics and bring life to your story.

Learn how to make your comics look like professional comics in the video “Making Comic Panels.”

Remember, Dave McDonald has a lot of other videos about writing and drawing your own comics if you are interested.

Share your comics with us! Post a photo in the comments below or share them on social media with the hashtag #HLSSummerReading.
