Comics date back to the 19th Century, however over the past 40-50 years comics have been increasingly used to capture and communicate human experience and challenges. Comic stories can be as real or imaginative as you wish. They can be used to express personal difficulties/events, or they can be used to escape to another world of your own creation. This resource is a brief and simple start-up guide to get you set up to creating your own comic, which you can do from the comfort of your own home!
