Or maybe you think about “funny pages”, the once popular color inserts in Sunday newspapers with comic “strips” like Peanuts and Garfield.
Well, comics have evolved in many ways. From graphic novels with adult themes to what this TLDCast is about: Instructional Comics. And our guest for this episode is one of the globe’s leading instructional designers producing instructional comics, Kevin Thorn.
