While many of us are familiar with book-length graphic novels or single issue comic books, short comics are another way to explore storytelling through sequential art. Create an original short comic that is 2-4 pages in length of any genre - fiction, nonfiction, or somewhere in between! Work on character design and plot development, explore examples of other short comics, draft and give/receive feedback, and finish with creating your own art piece.
