My Comic Book Review (Lulu Jr.)

My Comic Book
What It Is

Kids can become authors and artists with the My Comic Book and My Awesome Book book-making kits. These kits, sold separately, allow kids to create and share their imaginative stories and artwork. Each kit comes with everything kids need to create and illustrate their story, including blank book pages, markers, a quick-start guide, and a pre-paid envelope. When kids are done writing and illustrating their stories, send the finished pages back to Lulu Jr. in the pre-paid envelope, and within two weeks, your child will receive his or her story as a professionally bound book complete with the child's bio and author photo. You can even order extra copies for grandparents.

Is It Fun?

These book-making kits are a fun and creative activity for aspiring authors and artists. Kids will love writing their own stories and comics, and seeing them printed and bound just like a real book.

Who It’s For

My Comic Book is for ages 6 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The markers included in the My Comic Book kit tended to ball up while we colored in our comic, and the fine tip marker didn't last long before it dried out. It seems like you could use markers from home. Just don't use crayons, paint, colored pencils, glue, scissors, tape, photos, or stickers.

Books are printed in less than two weeks from the date received. We got ours within two and a half weeks of mailing it off. Lulu Jr. advises you to allow extra time during holidays and end of school terms.

Make sure your child pays attention to the design guidelines so that parts of the story don't get cut off in the final printing.
