How To Make Your Own Comic Book
Do you love to draw? Do you create stories to go along with your illustrations and art work? Have you ever admired the cartoon like superhero characters in the famous Marvel and DC comic strips? If the answer to these questions is yes, then you more than likely have what it takes to make your own comic book.
Before you begin, there are some things you are going to have to gather together and get organized, but once you take the time to accomplish these small but important tasks, your comic book -- including your characters and story lines as well as the physical book itself -- will be ready to be put together in no time at all.
For example, and this is probably one of the more important decisions you will have to make as it will determine the flow and design of your characters and story lines, you want to decide what kind of audience you are trying to reach. By doing this, you can then decide if you want your comic book to be about superheros, villains or just everyday kind of people and what kind of genre you intend to write about -- such as horror or classic, to name a few.
Once you have determined your audience and the direction your story should take based on your characters, you are ready to begin to make your own comic book. For your first comic book, it is recommended that you create a short, but simple storyline layout in order to get the hang of what it takes to write dialogue for your comic book characters.
Keep in mind that as you get the hang of writing your comic book stories, you can always go into more detail and add greater storylines in subsequent issues so setting the baseline for your characters and where they may go throughout the story is quite commendable and, as most people think, highly necessary. This is because a comic book is actually a series of successive episodes that tell your story.
The idea is to make the reader want to read more and more of your story as the weeks go on. Once you have your story line in place, or at least the outline, then you should create your characters around what your comic book will be written about. This way you can make sure your characters and your story line will match up believably when you sit down to make your own comic book.
Once you have these components in place, you are ready to combine them and work towards your finished product -- your very first comic book.
