Building Comics: Constructing Visual Narratives Lecture at Moraine Valley Community College

At the Moraine Valley Community College, I gave a lecture titled Building Comics: Constructing Visual Narratives as an introduction to making comics.  You can see the lecture in its entirety along with the improv comics making.  I handed out copies of the Comics Generator™ that you can download from the Activity Pages tab.

Throughout the presentation I create with the audience a story then live-storyboard the comic.  After the talk at the table outside the library I went ahead and drew out the comic which you can now check out.
