I spent such a fun week working with Mrs. Michaelson’s amazing students to create Super Marvel-ous Comics!
We used the Marvel create a comic generator and though it had some quirky side-effects – our saved .PDF’s didn’t look the same as what we had on our screen! Some of our backgrounds disappeared and some had extra speech bubbles that I swear weren’t there when we saved them! Maybe we should have just taken screen shots??
We had time after the comic creating & we watched & danced to the latest craze UMD Gangnam Style!
If you want to learn more about how to create your own animations, visit my Animation Studios & Sites Wikipage for all kinds of links, articles, blog postings, directions, comic tutorials, & more! On that wikipage you’ll find information about Go!Animate (as shown in this posting) also, Blabberize, ToonDoo, Xtranormal, and more!
