Using these comics and my Privacy Policy

Can I use these comics for my class?

I am really happy to provide photo-copy ready comics (in black and white, in American letter size or European A4) for educators with the proper copyright notice on the page. Please email me at salve (at) pictamanent (dot) com to get a pdf collection of all of the currently published comics and activities. I can also provide you with versions featuring dyslexia/accessibility friendly fonts.

All of the images are copyright protected, and may not be used without my stated permission for any purpose beyond your private reading.

I found a mistake in your text.

Oh no! If you would be so kind, please email me at salve (at) pictamanent (dot) com to let me know about the error, I would really appreciate it. I’m running this whole operation by myself, without a second reader or copy editor, so mistakes will be made.

I want to collaborate!

Fantastic! I want to collaborate with someone as well, especially if you are interested in helping me create fun and useful activities to accompany the comics, or if you would like to do some of the visual or background research I usually do in preparation for making the comics. Please email me with an introduction to yourself and some info about your ideas at salve (at) pictamanent (dot) com.
