Mission B: Comic Exhibition
Young people design a space comic
Comics, graphic novels or mangas: The diversity of graphic works is huge and space, together with its (potential) inhabitants, is a popular subject. But how do the various styles differ and what drawing techniques bring emotions to life? And how are the cosmos, the exploration of space and the various aerospace technologies presented in comics?
In this mission, researchers from the Comic Research Network “icon” at HHU will discuss these topics with children and young people. And more besides: In a workshop comprising two afternoon sessions, participants will draw their own comics based on a Japanese science fiction story. They will learn the basics and techniques from a professional manga illustrator and then apply them in their own works.
