Hot Hot Wicked Flame

My son is starting to appreciate the slapstick humor of Looney Tunes.  His comics lately have been ending with an explosion and some poor soot covered character.  Classic cartoon gold.

Panel one: An unhappy man in a boat with cannon.
Panel two: "Boom" action sequence with cannon ball fling through the air.
Pannel three:  Sooty person "Aaaa."

Introducing: Tornado Man

My six year old son also draws his own comics. He likes onomatopoeia so there isn’t a lot of dialogue except “aahhh”’s and “rrrrr”’s .

Panel 1: Tornado Man (in his secret identity clothes) says "Hi".  He is in a time out chair (not sure why) and Superman is sad that he didn’t make better choices.

Panel 2: Tornado growls and starts turning around and around and changes into his superhero costume.

Panel 3: Tornado man chases Superman to fight him.

Panel 4: Superman punches Tornado Man and he screams “aa”

Introducing Evil Hairdo Lady

My nine year old daughter started her very own comic strip. We will have to wait to find out why she is evil or if she ever learns how to use a brush. Stay tuned;-)
