“The Bottlenose Dolphin” (An Eco-comic)



Comics is a medium for transporting messages and information in a very direct and efficient way, since it is primarily based on visual information, which may be extremely reduced and focused. This makes it not only suitable especially for children, but also for adult people. Although comic magazines once have been considered as “junk”, comics today has gained enormous reputation, which is evidenced by the large number of high-level graphic novels on the market. “The bottlenose dolphin” is a short comic attempting to send an ecological message to the (young) reader.
