“If you want to make comics or any kind of art…don’t let anyone stop you!”
Okay, it sounds pretty obvious, but some of the most popular series out there are based off fairy tales, and how else do you discover your favorite fairy tale, but by reading it? According to Raina Telgemeire, “The best way to learn how to write is to read. The best way to learn how to write and draw comics, is to read comics. (Or manga, or graphic novels, or whatever you want to call them.)” So encourage your child to read, study their favorite books and explore novels outside their favorite genre.
