Comic Book Club in memory of Jace Ferre

Comic books and superheroes seem to be timeless for kids and adults alike. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming is incorporating this pop culture phenomenon into a regular activity for youth and honoring the memory of one child through a special unveiling set for Tuesday.

The club will host a dedication and open house event in honor of the “Jace Ferre Comic Book Club” at the Boys & Girls Clubs Main Branch, 1701 East K Street, Casper. The event is scheduled from 4 to 6 p.m. with an unveiling at 4:15 p.m. Children can learn to create their own comic books, make superhero masks, and enjoy a comic book themed dinner.

Seven-year-old Jace Ferre was a club member and loved drawing and creating superheroes and villains. Following his death last fall, club staff were inspired to launch a Comic Book Club in his honor.

The curriculum for Comic Book Club brings young artists along from the basics of drawing a comic strip to writing dialog and working up to customizing facial expressions to match the dialog and storyline. It will meet every Tuesday at 5 p.m. at the main club and is open to all interested Club kids.
