  • Comics are stronger learning tools than text books:the brain processes images 60,000 times faster than it processes text.
  • Creating comics improves literacy, story telling (narrative), engagement and motivation. It also requires a solid understanding of the subject. Comics improve drawing, computer and research skills.
