My pal Joie Simmons is working on a How To Make A Graphic Novel for Kids and I thought the premise was cool.
He tells me it'll be available online before World War III.


CHARACTERS


Your character can be a:

i. Stick figure
ii. Little cartoon
iii. A dog, a cat
iv. Even a silly shape

Make the characters talk:

i. Talk and react
ii. Normal talking
iii. BIG YELLING!

PANELS

Think of panels as little TV screens
ORDER OF PANELS


LETTERING


Try to keep it all the same size

i. Bigger for yelling
ii. Smaller for whispering

THE STORY


You will need a beginning, a middle and an ending

i. It’s best to have an ending in mind when you start.
ii. Yes, your story can be about absolutely anything, A princess, a pirate, a superhero dog.

Stories can be one page or many pages. It doesn’t matter, just start and have some fucking fun!
