Hm, I thought that the tutorials are gonna aim to code *motion comics* in LiveCode; animations, sprites and stuff.
Clearly, I misunderstood :)
Still, a promising project, especially to teach programming to youngsters.

Actually, motion comics is just the media to  
learn programming with LiveCode. :)

The essential skills are:  

1) Learn how to separate an image from its background

Did you have a title in which you would like to convert  
in a motion comic?  

In this free website: http://comicbookplus.com/  
you could find thousands of titles, but some are  
suitable only for adults. To download, you have  
to request a membership, but everybody  
could read them in the web browser.  

Have a nice weekend! :)
