We were privileged to work with a group of six year 6 boys at St. Mary’s Primary on an extended project teaching both the art of comics and principles of writing and storytelling. They produced lots of great work culminating in a vibrant comic entitled ORIGIN STORY.
Origin Story Cover
The boys looked at popular origin stories in super hero comics and we discussed how these stories gave context and motivation to otherwise peculiar characters.
Then, as a collaborative exercise, they came up with their own hero character. A GIANT ROBOT SAMURAI!
They were then tasked to each come up with an origin story for the character and we collected their interpretations in an 8 page A5 comic that also featured an A3 poster.
