It’s a crazy time in the world right now, and the entertainment history has been thrown up in the air just as much as anything else. While we all try and adjust to the extremely troubling reality we’re having to face up to, DC Comics is at least trying to deliver some positivity for younger readers.
Via The Hollywood Reporter, DC is launching an online program called DC Kids Camp. This program has been put together by the minds behind DC’s kids and YA graphic novels of recent years – with the aim being to deliver something fun for children to do while in quarantine.
The first of these videos actually aired yesterday, with Green Lantern: Legacy’s Minh Le presenting Make a Green Lantern Ring with Minh Le. Later today will see Superman Origami with Gene Luen Yang, and Friday is scheduled for Make You Own Superhero with Dustin Hansen.
More videos will be posted with each passing week, as DC Comics looks to give children – or adults – something fun to do in these strange times. Colouring pages and activity sheets are some of the content available for those partaking in DC Kids Camp, and a newsletter will be sent out twice a week for those who sign up for this.
This follows in the footsteps as the UK’s The Phoenix running a similar service alongside 2000 AD.
