Welcome to the Chess Comic



Welcome to The Chess Comic: Learning Chess Through Comics. My goal with the comic is to take the information I have taught in the beginner and intermediate chess camps I have taught in the past and pass that on to my readers using the comic medium.

In my experience, kids and adults new to chess often forget the little things that make up the fundamentals of the game, and I thought having a visual cue for these things might come in handy. The goal is to go through the beginner basics (piece moves, piece values, etc.) and move on to the intermediate skills (openings, endgames, tactics, puzzles etc).

Maybe you are a young person interested in learning so you can play chess with your classmates. Maybe you are older and always wanted to learn, but could never get past how the pieces move. Maybe you are a teacher and want to be able to start a chess club. Or…Maybe you are tired of your ten year old beating you all the time.

[Update] The plan was to publish a new strip every week.  I went through a long stretch where I hardly published at all - but I am back on track, I just went by strip100 and I am on a roll.

The more you know about chess, the more fun it gets. Have more fun.

Hello Scott,
My husband just started a Chess club at my children's elementary school.

I am helping out and am still learning the game myself.
I am really enjoying the way you illustrate in such an informational and fun way.
I look forward to sharing your work with our 4th and 5th graders. I know they will enjoy your work and learn from it just as I have.

Thank you so much.

I'm so glad we found you.
Are you published yet? I want a copy if you are! You could be the next Jeff Kinney
a.k.a. movie mogul : )

I came across this website by accident on Google and am glad to have found it. Your comics have incredibly useful information for beginners but also maintains a good sense of humor with its own personal charm. Great work and I wish the best for your comic endeavors!
