According To Your Zodiac Sign, Here’s The Comic You Should Make

by

Astrology is the road map of ourselves. The planetary and celestial alignment at the time of each of our births lends information to our inherent character, understanding who we are, and further informs what is going on here on earth.

Now let’s have it help you in deciding what comics to make!

There are many stories to be told. And many types, styles, and genres of comics to tell them with. It can be overwhelming just to decide where to begin.

You might be certain: this is what I’m going to create! But then you get started and second guess: What if…? And then fall deeper into the not-making-anything rabbit hole.

So let yourself be guided. Find your sign below (if you don’t know it, look for the date range that includes your birthday; they’re organized by season rather than by the year) and discover the most aligned comic to make.
