Comic Jam – a super fun way to create short comics as a group
Esther held a comic jam, an event where people gather to create a series of comics together, usually leading to some strange, hilarious, and incredibly original stories. It is similar to the “cadavre exquis” exercise, except that everyone can see what others have drawn.
At the end of the comic jam, there were as many new comic pages created as participants in the group. Everyone went home with one completed comic page (usually the one they started).
