Lesson 5
Make a Splash!
A splash page is a full-page illustration that typically appears at the beginning of a comicbook issue or chapter. It is designed to grab the reader's attention and set the tone for the story that follows. Splash pages often feature dynamic and action-packed scenes, showcasing the main characters in a visually striking way.
Lesson 6
What's the Problem?
Using a simple formula, we will bring our characters to life and create a customized, interesting story your readers will not be able to get enough of.
Lesson 7
The Big Action
Onomatopoeia has been a key feature of comicbook storytelling since the early days of the medium, with artists and writers using these words to bring the action on the page to life. The use of onomatopoeia in comicbooks can also help to convey the tone and mood of a scene, adding depth and dimension to the storytelling. Overall, onomatopoeia plays a crucial role in creating the dynamic and immersive world of comicbooks.
Lesson 8
Problem Solved?
A cliffhanger is a storytelling technique commonly used in serialized comicbooks to create suspense and anticipation for the next installment. These cliffhangers typically occur at the end of an issue, leaving readers on the edge of their seats and eager to find out what happens next. They often involve a dramatic twist, unresolved conflict, or shocking revelation that leaves the protagonist in a precarious situation. Comicbook cliffhangers are a powerful tool for keeping readers engaged.
