Sixth Grade Comic Creators Adapt Their Favorite Video Games
As a kid who got into comics thanks, in part, to Archie Comics’ “Sonic the Hedgehog,” I have to say that Kotaku’s glimpse into the innocence of sequential art creation is a wonderful sight.
The sixth grade students who attend comic creator Raina Telgemeier’s Afterschool Comics Workshop (which, ironically, Kotaku misspelled as “Worship”) were given a mission: Create a short comic based on your favorite video game.
The young artists passed with flying colors depicting everyone from Kirby to Solid Snake with an enthusiasm that’s hard to remember after enduring “Ultimatum,” but by golly, if anything can make me remember the joy of comics again it’s these kids.
Each strip was created with a submission to the video game Webcomic anthology Lifemeter in mind and it looks like they caught on!
Stick with it kids – comics need you.
