Kitty is bored. She is so bored, in fact, that she even considers playing with that slobbering mutt Puppy, who lives in her house. Nah. Instead, she thinks she’ll take a nap. That is, until there is a knock on the door … Strange Kitty is here to guide both Kitty and Kitty’s fans through the world of making comics. Like to draw? Great! Here’s your chance to show off your skills. Don’t know how to draw? That’s okay. Through guided exercises you will learn all about how comics work, including sections on panelling, sound and visual effects, word balloons and so much more. With such fun activities and a hilarious story to boot, this is bound to be a Bad Kitty favorite.

I can’t imagine there won’t be a LOT of kids making comics after this expert instruction! This was excellent, Nick! :D
It’s great because these comics are really simple. Kids don’t have to be the best illustrators, they just have to be imaginative!
