                             Figurative Language Comics
Figurative language (metaphors, similes, personification, onomatopoeia, alliteration,
hyperbole) can be used to make writing more vivid and in some cases humorous.
Just like the examples from the funny pages of Blondie, Garfield and Pearls Before
Swine, you will be creating a comic, which uses figurative language to enhance the
humor.
Your comic will:
   1. contain at least two different figures of speech.
   2. be four to six panels long.
   3. be neat, colorful, and funny.
