I’ve blogged a number of times about pupils creating comic strips through using Stripgenerator, Chogger, Make Beliefs Comixs and so on. I’m also a fan of getting pupils just to read them. I luckily had a fair few Garfield, Mafalda and Calvin and Hobbes books from living in Colombia and Chile, and used to photocopy these for my door, or also use them in lessons from time to time (one fun activity was getting pupils to fill in single word blanks or entire strips with their own words in the target language.)

The GoComics site is a great site that has a wide range of comics updated daily. Not only can you read them online but they will also send them to you on a daily basis to your email account. Subscription is free.

Here is a link to the Spanish language cartoons available

You can add cartoons that you like the look of by clicking Add to my Comics as you view the comic.

Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be a French or German option, but it could be good for EAL / EFL learners.

Here’s a Wizard of Id comic to get an idea
