Comic storytelling combines both writing and drawing to tell tales that span every conceivable genre. Create your very own graphic novel that tells a unique, interesting and personal story. Employ the techniques of professional cartoonists to tell your story, from narrative development to layout, penciling, coloring, and lettering a final product. You will improve your ability to tell a story clearly by designing pages that engage readers and communicate effectively using both words and art.
