Mark Pellegrini Spells Out Worldbuiding in Comic Books

May 4, 2021

Mark Pellegini and Wes break down Worldbuilding in comics. Worldbuilding is key no matter what genre or world you’re creating in. It establishes the rules and setting your characters and story operate in. In many ways it can be the longest and most part of comic book writing. In fact, a vast majority of the rules, history and culture you create may never show up in your comic book. But it drives your story and allows readers to become immersed in the setting and story your telling.
