    At my school in England we have things like that but they’re more like large comic strips

  • MadmanofMagic

    I just ran a successful Kickstarter campaign, but I have extended the goals. Has/does anyone else have any advice on running a successful campaign?

  • MouldPlay

    Wannabe version of Horrible History, just saying.

    I’ve never really understood why comic book fans want to be taken so seriously and make graphic novels a part of education. I am an avid comic reader but I don’t see how (At their current state) they will ever be taken seriously either as an art form or a educational tool. Now I’m not saying that all comics are this way there are a few exceptions, but will we look back and see a Shakespeare of comics? Or how about a Tarantino? comic have to start taking themselves seriously so others can too…

    Grace I was told that you would not be able to establish your own successful comic book without having a well known name. Like if you worked for Dc or Marvel and your recognized that’s when you can branch off on your own. Is this true?

    I Love This Channel!

    Hey Grace,
    I was wondering if you were still going to do a comics to movies episode of Bane and the Lizard.
    I also really like how you have these live chats now on your show. It’s a fresh new change and I like it.

  • KagamiYoshimiza

    Hey! you should talk about Marceline from Adventure Time’s new comic coming out Marceline And The Scream Queens.

  • NerdyMarvelComicGirl

    Grace is this funny because im a college student and for my disortation I was wanting to creat a compic book much like what Read With Pictures is doing! Being a history major I thought it would be cool to do comic books about history because most people think history is snooze fest but I am on board with what Read With Pictures is doing but I was wondering how can one help creat such comic books?

    I’ve seen a colored manga covering the life of Ghandi. I think comic textbooks are a good idea for kids to become more interested in certain subjects.

  • harial

    Grace, you forgot a link to their kickstarter in the description. :)

  • MrBrysonification

    ….That’s what Watchmen is for….but still a very cool cause! If I can I will defiantly donate!

  • screambloodymurder9

  • HonkyTonkBuffalo

    Awesome! Getting kids to read, learn, and introducing them to comics, all at the same time? That’s amazing. Good luck with your endeavor!! 😀

  • Edward Hippisley-Cox

    Kick Starter seems to be changing a lot of things.
    Power to the creators and consumers. Makes me look forward to the future, especially for me as I hope to be an independent animator.
    Hope this catches on too. Sounds awesome.
