Junior Dispatch visited with Girl Scout Cadette troop No. 20596 to teach the girls about how comic books and comic strips are made.

The class included an opportunity for the girls to make their own comic, ask questions about how comics are published and see some original comic pages produced by professionals from Marvel Comics, DC Comics and syndicated newspaper comic strips.

The troop is lead by Chris Logsdon.

One of the Girl Scouts worked on a comic about cupcakes going shopping.

You can arrange to have Junior Dispatch come out and visit your class, youth group, scouting troop, daycare or other organization too. Junior Dispatch has a number of activities available: The comic book class, story time and coloring activities. All the sessions include a short talk on what its like to work in journalism.

The comic creation class focuses on creating comics of all kinds, not just superhero stories. We like those, of course, but we know some kids don't.

The girls of Troop 20596 work on their comics using some typical art supplies, including pencils, erasers, colored pencils, plain typing paper and rulers.
