See the stages in which our comic book developed at Marvel

Have you ever wondered how Marvel develops a comic book?

The great Dutch post-Impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh once said that: “Great things are not done [in one stroke] but by a series of small things brought together.”

So it is with a comic book. A lot of art and work go into the composition of a comic book.

Comics are a great medium for conveying stories and ideas. They combine words and pictures and colour. They can be read as quickly or slowly as the reader desires. They can be read again when the reader finds them particularly helpful or funny or comforting.

Take a look below at how the pictures develop and then take on colour. Maybe YOUR story will undergo a similar process.
