The Fly

Thomas (age 12) has written and drawn a complete graphic novel called “FLY” – he’s done it all on the ipad, using the apple pencil and an app called “Comic Draw” (a kind of comic studio for kids – you can script in it, pencil, ink and colour and then letter the entire thing in this one program)

Here’s the complete work in two parts:

Part 1

Finn is a teenager who works at a trash job in a trashy home but little did he know his life would take a turn for the worst when a speeding car runs him over and he ends up in hell. Since he didn’t live a good life he was turned into his least favourite animal, a fly and since he didn’t go into the brain crusher he still has all his memories of being a human! Can Finn convince his friend that it’s really him and can they find a way out of this mess?!

Part 2

When Finn died and was turned into a fly his life changed for the worst. Desperate to turn back he get transported to the afterlife. Can Finn fly past Satan’s anger or will Finn get caught in his web!?

  1. Great stuff! I love the manager.

  2. Great work, Thomas, well done! You’ve obviously got your dad’s talent!

  3. Been thinking about this since reading it. Lots of great skills here, particularly finishing it which is something I still struggle with. But also, good characters and storytelling.

  5. This is absolutely brilliant!!
    Well done – I really wanted to know what happened, and I liked the humour too.
    Your storytelling skills are amazing!!

  6. Great stuff Thomas! A did a proper laugh when the frog took his whole foot off instead of just one toe. Dying to know where it leads next for poor Finn.
