The Comic Kobold - Draw + Glue + Write

“Go for your comic story and put it in a book!”

Maria Best

Dive into the world of panels, soundwords and speechbubbles together with the Comic Kobold.

Reading comics is fun - making comics even more!

Drawing comics offers kids the possibility to illustrate exciting action scenarios. This fosters imagination and concentration. Also, creating a book on your own is a powerful incentive for reading. 

The comic templates each have an individual look – thus inspiring different stories: adventurous, scary, with knighthood decoration, movie strip, science fiction style, …

More than 120 pages give plenty of room for creativity. Your kids can scribble, cut up, copy, or color. With comics, what matters is an exciting story!

And the Comic Kobold and his cat reveal some special tricks.

The Comic Kobold How I made this book

The first step was to make a storyboard. This allowed me to put the different chapters (panels and information parts) in a meaningful and interesting order.

I had planned 10 different story panels and wanted the tiny Kobold to have a kind of interaction with the numbers.

The panels should have an individual “look”, so I scribbled up some general ideas.

Drawing the illustrations is always the fun part – you get so many additional ideas for other books and characters. That’s how the cat came to life later on in the project.

While still working on the different sketches, I already started scanning and reworking, arranging everything together in my book layout. Before translating the whole project into english, I made a test print of the german version for the final editing.
