Make Beliefs Comix is a new website where children and adults can create their own comic strips. They can select from 10 fun characters with different moods -- happy, sad, angry, worried and write words for blank talk and thought balloons to make their characters talk and think. There also are story ideas and prompts to help users create graphic stories.
This site can be used to teach language, reading and writing skills and to facilitate self-expression and storytelling. Some educational therapists use it with deaf and autistic people to help them understand concepts and communicate. Parents and children can create stories together, print them to create comic books or email them to friends and family. Others will find the site a resource to be creative, calm down and have fun. The site is free with no advertising. WooHoo!
