SMASH writer Chris A. Bolton had a wonderful time visiting with a couple of fifth grade classes from Sweetbriar Elementary School, where he read from SMASH: TRIAL BY FIRE (with the help of his good friend, Levi Buchanan) and answered students' wonderful questions -- including a few he had never heard before!
Chris collaborated with the students to create an original comic strip based on their suggestions. These brilliant kids volunteered awesome ideas for panels and dialogue, then the class voted for their favorites. Being a writer, naturally, Chris struggled a little with the artwork. Check out the zany results below! (Click on the pic for a larger view.)
Special thanks to Lynn Reaney for inviting me, and to the whole staff at Sweetbriar for making me feel so welcome.
