·Very often, the characters’ words appear in a speech bubble.

slide11

How long have comic strips beenaround?

By the 1890’s, competition from daily newspapers in the United States was affecting the sales of weekly magazines. So, the magazines came up with the idea of the comic strip.

slide13

Then, the daily newspapers copied the idea. They began publishing comic strips, too. “Mutt and Jeff” first appeared in 1907.

slide14

Comic books began in 1933 and by 1938 “Superman” made his first appearance. “Superman” was a great success. “Batman” followed a year later with his sidekick, Robin.

slide15

Many other super-heroes followed. Have you heard of “The Human Torch”, “Captain Marvel” and “Wonder Woman” ? In the 1960’s, Spider-Man appeared.

slide16

Comics carry you away from your everyday lives. They put you in a world of fun, fantasy and adventure. You can travel back in time, or forwards into the future. With comics, anything is possible.

slide17

Let’s take a look at the difference between a regular man and a super - hero.

slide18

The super-hero is larger, with broader shoulders. His muscles are a lot bigger. He’s more impressive than any average guy. There’s nothing weak about him.

slide19

What about the bad guy?

  • He’s heavy and strong.
  • His feet are firmly on the ground.
        • His hands are powerful.
          • His face is evil.
          • He can put fear into anyone.
slide21

First, divide your page into five horizontal segments.

Then, draw in the shape of the head in the middle of the first segment.

Next, sketch the round body in the next two segments.

slide22

After that, draw his shoulders and arms.

His head is fixed firmly into his shoulders. You can’t see his neck.

Finally, draw his wide, short legs in the last two segments..

slide23

You now have the shape of The Kingpin. Draw in his angry face. Then, draw in his clothes. He’s wearing a shirt, jacket and pants. He’s a real tough guy.

slide24

Comic strips first appeared over 100 years ago. They became a great success and are still popular today.

  • But some comics have been animated. You can see them on TV.
slide25

The Simpson family first appeared on TV in 1989. “The Simpsons” is a humorous look at life in middle class America. Homer Simpson with his bald head and fat stomach. Marge Simpson and her tall hairdo.

They are there to make you smile.

slide26

There’s Homer and Marge Simpson. But do you know the names of their three children?

What is the name of the town they live in?

Do you know who created the Simpson family?

Let’s go into a website about the Simpsons and find out.

slide27

  • Their children are Bart, Lisa and Baby Maggie.
  • They live in Springfield.
  • Matt Groening created them.
