After learning about a high school group that won an award for their work with creating a comic The Tempest I decided to check out Pixton, the comic creator. I’m quite pleased with all the Shakespeare I found.
True, it’s not like most of these will be winning awards anytime soon. But that’s not really the point. If there are classrooms out there where the project is to create a comic book out of a Shakespeare play, and that helps the kids actually follow along with character and plot, I’m all for it.
I guess I’d just hope that if all you’re aiming for is character and plot that elementary school kids could do this. If you’re talking about high school kids then I’d like a little bit more understanding than just “Brutus kills Caesar because that’s what it says he does.”
