Thanks for reading our latest blog recap, for Meltdown University’s Comics for Kids: This week’s lesson (and this blog post) focuses on DIALOGUE, and WORD BALLOONS.
Dialogue can be a lot more complicated than just what a character says. The same line of dialogue will be different depending on the facial expression of the character who says it– or how the dialogue box itself was actually drawn. Some dialogue boxes are barely there, and others are very important to the entire LAYOUT of the comic.
Scroll down to read the lesson plan and what we learned on this front. As usual, scroll down below that to see what the kids came up with.
Thanks for reading!
