A YouTube channel dedicated to exploring the craft of comics.
In April 2021, Elsa Charretier and Pierrick Colinet launched a YouTube channel about comic book storytelling. Their ambitious goal was to offer the comic book community a place to understand comics better, in video form; their expertise as working professionals helping fans and aspiring creators to better appreciate some of their favorite comics (Batman: Year One! Hawkeye!)
Below is a breakdown of their different video series.
The idea is to take a comic book page from one of our medium’s masters and figure out what makes it work so perfectly, with the help of a notepad as big as Elsa and an array of very colorful Sharpies. She sketches, uses arrows, follows eye flows, deconstructs and rebuilds panels in clear but deep analyses.
In which you can enjoy Pierrick’s gorgeous, incredibly crisp and detailed videos of Elsa's inking. In voice-over she delves into more practical aspects of our industry and her personal experience coming up.
Elsa and Pierrick watch a lot of movies and read a lot of novels. Parts of which they can’t help but to adapt into sequential art in their heads. Rather than letting that thinking go to waste, they created a series where they do just that: adapt a scene from a piece of fiction into a comic page.
