As one of her assignments for the Afterschool Comics Workshop she runs, graphic novelist Raina Telgemeier (Baby-sitters Club, Smile) asked her 6th graders to create a short comic based on their favorite video game.
Most of the 11 year olds seem enamored with Kirby, but a couple used chose "high definition games" for their inspiration, like Alessandro with his Blazing Angels strip (above) and Nuriden's Metal Gear Solid 4 scene (below). Wait, aren't these titles rated Teen and Mature? Should they really be playing these games?
Anyway, you can see all five of the comics at Life Meter. And if you liked the two I've shared with you in this post, make sure to head over there and leave the students feedback!
