Cross Panels Comics #9 (with GIF!)

For a longer explanation of Cross Panel Comicsclick here.

I'm sometimes asked for more explanation of the process in creating these. Okay. We start with a grid and take turns drawing a strip which must intersect with an existing strip. It's like Words With Friends only with comic panels. Here's a GIF that demonstrates the order in which we created this latest comic. The strips I wrote & drew are in blue. Martin's work is in green. We spent less than 2 hours making this. (Not counting my later digital inking, since we draw in pencil.)

Try it! It's hard and fun! To see all our Cross Panel Comics, click here!

Cross Panel Comics #8

Wow, it's been a while since my son and I created one of these. It's a game we play that's a mix of improv, scrabble, and comic creation. We do it in pencil and then I ink it for better readability. For a longer explanation of Cross Panel Comics, click here.

Martin begin this one with the strip starting with, "I'm still not sure about this." Click to enlarge...

We do it to amuse ourselves, but they're always fun to share! To see all our Cross Panel Comics, click here!
