As we're finding out, great comic ideas come from almost anywhere. We used the daily paper as inspiration for these exercises. The sports pages turned out to be a hilarous rescouce for dynamic battle comics. We had some great titles to choose from...The most popular headline was "Crusaders humble Tigers with impressive defense" as illustrated above by Miles.
Colin decided to put his warriors inside a turtle shell, ask him about it!
Henry and Lucy both illustrated "Wins not revenge on Duck's agenda"
We also made comic illustrations from the world news. The headlines were guideposts and of course the addition of extra characters/setting enhancement was encouraged. The kids tackled a great moment in recent history, Sebastian Pinera's innuguration ceremony as the new president of Chile was interrupted as a 6.9 magnitude earthquake rocked the the city.
Xander's interpretation of the event involved an alien invasion which was the cause of the earthquake, no word yet on the fate of the president after he boarded the mother ship.
Lucy is going for the literal and visual word play with this one, the country is shaped like a chili pepper and the president is an oaf rather than taking his "oath", rock on Lucy!
