"Comic books are more accepted today by educators as tools for helping children master literacy," Cheyenne Comic Con wrote. "The funny, silly, clever, and touching story lines in each short strip draw eager readers in." ​*​h/t: **Downtown Development Authority/Pitchengine Communities* "Just a few words per frame is all it takes for a comic book's characters to reveal a complete story. They don’t require long sentences or paragraphs to relate a captivating tale or a powerful message." ​*​h/t: **Downtown Development Authority/Pitchengine Communities* More information on this event can be found on their website . *Feature photo: Downtown Development Authority/Pitchengine Communities* #shortgo #news #whatshappening
