You will design the cover of issue #1 of a comic book starring your superhero.  Consider the following:

  • overall use of space, colour and neatness
  • creative title
  • hook (a sentence or phrase to get you to read it)
  • publisher’s logo (e.g. DC)
  • Superhero action shot (scene related to the incident you described in your biography, foreground and background)
  • other elements of a comic book cover (e.g. date, cost, bar code, etc.)

Here is the website of comic book covers we looked at during class today.  Use it to help you get some ideas for your superhero cover.
