My capstone is a comic book, well more like a book of comics. I tried to keep on one single plot the whole time however my mind kept going to different ideas so I created a book of short comics with a how to draw section at the end. I plan on further developing the comics and characters after I graduate. I would like to thank Mr. Miles, Ms. Garvey-Gorgio, Ms. Hull, and Alex Woodburn for their help and support.
NOTE: THIS COMIC IS A GIFT TO THE SCHOOL AND IT WILL REMAIN IN THE SCHOOL LIBRARY AS I WOULD LIKE TO COME VISIT AND STILL BE ABLE TO READ MY CREATION. Thank You
Mr. Miles: Mentor
Alex Woodburn: Kind of Mentor
Erin Garvey-Gorgio: Support
Ms. Hull: Support
People: Character Ideas
Marvel and DC Comics media: Inspiration
This project started in the summer between my junior and senior year of high school, around August of 2013. Most of the work in the summer was figuring out the main plot of the comic and what characters of mine will be used. When school started, I gathered more information about the capstone and that it has to relate to the 5 core values of SLA. So all of them were pretty much covered except for collaboration. I decided that for the collaboration aspect I would give the students a chance to create a character (hero/villain/other) who could appear in the comic. I’ve also been working with Alex Woodburn who's been like an unofficial mentor giving me tips on how to make my characters seem anatomically correct. From September to February I’ve been planning and adjusting my comic to fit with the characters submitted. In February, I started working on the final comic. I decided it will be black and white since I don’t have the means to color it effectively. Now I am working on the end of the comic theres actually a post on Facebook about of the Student Created Characters for all of the original characters there is a section at the back of the comic to give them credit and admiration.
