Reviews From DofE Participants

who chose Comic Appreciation for their Skills Section

"I enjoyed learning about how to grade comics and the history of how they came to be. I really enjoyed learning about comics from other countries, especially Japan. I found this course very useful and have been inspired for my own comic book ideas or to start a collection"

J.R. Silver DofE Award Participant

"My favourite parts of the course was the beginning where each week you would be thought a part of comic book collecting. The key things I have learnt from this course was the management of time as now I find it much more easier to sort my things out also following from the comic book part I have found out how to sell my comic books by checking their conditions and I have made a 5 percent profit on most of my sales"

S.F. Silver DofE Award Participant

"I learnt the skill of comic collecting. I enjoyed learning about the different types of comics, the different comic book writers and illustrators. I learnt where to purchase comics from and how to catalogue the comics, look after them and store them safely"

J.P. Bronze DofE Award Participant

"I really enjoyed learning about the vast variety of comics, I specifically found the specific collecting section really important as it gave me a starting point to be able to collect for myself"
