Have you ever wanted to create a comic book or graphic novel? Why not join us to create a brand new superheroes comic - with lots of other children?

How is it going to work?

Take a look at the story so far, then write the next chapter. Make sure your story has colourful characters, comic capers, excitement, action and good vs. evil. Remember to leave your story open-ended so the next person can pick up from where you left off. If you’d rather draw than write then use the story to inspire a comic drawing and send that in.


  • Competition is open to children aged 5-18.
  • Please keep your comic story action packed and based on superheroes.
  • Write no more than 500 words (less than 500 words is also ok!)

Please send your stories or drawing by email to learning@foundlingmuseum.org.uk with your name, date and age.

Please send stories in the body of an email or as a word doc and drawings as jpgs.
