Just like its name suggests, Marvel Comic Creator is a free website gives you the tools to create your own comics using the Marvel superhero characters. You get to choose if you want to make a comic strip or a comic book, as well as how many panels you’d like to work with. Then, you can select from a list of characters, backgrounds and objects and place them into the scene. After that you just need to type in your own dialogue and you will be a comics creator!
Note that the image options are somewhat limited, and you can only work with what the site offers. So, as you can see in the strip below, we went with a teddy bear to represent a mishloach manot package since there were no food images!
But it can be fun to tinker with, and the final comics you create can be printed, downloaded or embedded onto other websites or emails.
In Your Classroom
- Comics can be a really good way to have students summarize information or display knowledge.
- If you’re creating a handout for your students, consider having a short comic panel as an introductory image or cover to add a little interest.
