Troy University’s Department of Theatre and Dance provides creative outlet for budding comic book creators.

Children are getting to unleash their inner Stan Lee this week at Troy University.

The Department of Theatre and Dance’s Comicamp is allowing children aged 10 to12 to spend a week developing and producing their own comic book.

“It’s built around the idea that these are very creative kids and they need an outlet to express that creativity,” says Comicamp Coordinator Greg Skaggs.

The campers work directly with TROY’s Graphic Design students and faculty to make their comic dreams a reality.

“We help the kids make their own comic,” says Comicamp Instructor Dior Brown. “We help them teach them basics of drawing. We help teach them concept designs, thumbnailing, coloring, anything you would need to be a real life comic book artist.”
