This post wraps up The Wild West Adventures of the Internet Kid, a daily webcomic that I started in January as part of the #Ds106 offshoot known as #Western106 and 40-plus comics later, I am bringing the adventures to an end (for now). I decided to make this FlipBook of all of the comics in the series, and you can find the collection at The Kid’s tumblr site, too.
Thanks for reading. I hope it made you smile here and there, and maybe got you to think about genres and stereotypes (of Westerns and of Technology), now and then. I had a blast writing them. See you on the open trails!
Peace (in the flip),
PS — Wondering how I made the Internet Kid flipbook? I created a Keynote slideshow (powerpoint or slides would work), imported all of the comic images, and then saved the whole thing as a PDF. That allowed me to use the Fliphtml5 site (which requires PDF uploads) to convert it into the flippable book. Easy. But I like how all of the comics look like they are in a book format.
I missed these so enjoying them now in full screen flip format. Wonderful! You are prolifically creative and reflective. I’m thinking about how I can use your comics in some of my classes. Not sure how you find the time – must be a parallel universe or something.
I create comics in bursts … and found a rich vein of stories I wanted to tell with The Kid and company. Feel free to use any of the comics. Here is the album of them on Flickr .. https://www.flickr.com/gp/dogtrax/502Df5
Thank you! I really appreciate your generosity.
I enjoyed reading these and think it could be a fun and creative learning activity for kids. Hope others find and see this, too.
Thanks and I agree … comics provide a road into literacy for a lot of young people …
