We adapted Chapter 1 of the children’s book Heidi into panels for a graphic novel. The story Heidi centers on a young orphan girl who is sent to the Swiss Alps to live with her grandfather. The original target audience for this book is children aged 6 to 9. We decided to transform the tale into a graphic novel for early teens, between the ages of 13 and 16. When it came to our design style, we chose to generate fantasy-inspired, lifelike illustrations using AI. Our images are vivid, mystical, and intricately detailed.


Meghan Baines, Nedira Böhler, Sophia Linke, Annika Losch

Experience 'Heidi', a groundbreaking thematic graphic novel. Crafted through an international collaboration between Toronto Metropolitan University and Stuttgart Media University, this project uniquely blends the classic tale with cutting-edge technology. AI not only wrote this description you are reading right now, but also generated stunning visuals with MidJourney. Immerse yourself in a captivating fusion of tradition and innovation as we redefine graphic storytelling. Join us on a magical journey where the synergy of AI and human creativity brings Heidi's world to life in ways never seen before.

Little Red Riding Hood

Elelta Fessehaie, George Hunter, Clara Stauber, Selina Tipold

Embarking on a visionary project, our team worked on creating a Graphic Novel of the classic tale of Red Riding Hood using the generative AI tool Midjourney. Pushing boundaries of storytelling in the Digital Era we explored the impressive abilities of AI creating impressive sceneries and characters in diverse visual styles.

Little Women

Jian Apolinar, Sarah Karkutsch, Jenny Kim, Lena Rixinger

Embark on a unique literary journey as students from Toronto Metropolitan University and Stuttgart Media University present their collaborative project—a captivating graphic novel adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women." Leveraging the cutting-edge AI Technology, MidJourney, the team brings this classic to life with reimagined scenes that intricately mirror the preferred art styles of today's younger generation. Immerse yourself in the harmonious synergy of classic literature and AI-driven creativity, exploring a fresh perspective on this beloved tale.

Little Woman

Robert Barnett, Sarah Gökeler, Stephanie Popow

Louisa May Alcott’s Little Woman is a classic coming-of-age tale following the ever-iconic March sisters – Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy - is our core source of inspiration in this Graphic Novel adaptation. Taking on this story was a surprise endeavour for our group, but a definite happy accident as we were enchanted by the themes of love and self-discovery that is so rich in the narrative. We worked with Midjourney to “/imagine” Chapter 3: The Lawrence boy of Alcott’s novel to showcase a variety of space and emotion that chapter provided us.

Little Women

Tosca Boudestein, Ekaterina Ilina, Jasmin Lieb, Lisa-Marie Marx

We chose Little Women as our book. We promoted our panels for the first chapter, arranging the panels on double pages in an InDesign document. We created a cover for our graphic novel.

Little Women

Roslinda Sodoli, Milena Starcenko, Ridwan Yusuf

Little Women is a story chronicling the lives of four sisters Meg, Jo, Amy, and Beth, after their father leaves to fight in the American civil war. The book follows the sisters along their journey into womanhood, and touches on topics regarding love, death, grief, and feminism. The book primarily follows Jo and her journey into becoming a published female author at a time where it was very difficult for women to be taken seriously. As a group we have decided to focus on chapter three, as we feel this is where the character interactions are the most dynamic and interesting. Our target audience for this project is young children between the ages of 9-13, who are just beginning to independently read more complex works. Our personas for this project are a school teacher named Nathan, a mother named Joanna, and two students named Phillip and Lily respectively.

The Secret Garden

Karan Boparai, Chanel Hart, Sean Honoré, Samantha Kaszas, Constancia Oertel

The Secret Garden is a classic in children's literature, written by Frances Hodgson Burnett, that we have adapted to reframe as a graphic novel. Using generative AI, we made this idea come to life. With a collaborative effort from three TMU students and two students from the University of Media in Stuttgart, Germany, the first three chapters of "The Secret Garden" were blended, with a focus on the darker perspective of the novel, utilizing current fads such as the gothic aesthetic of Wednesday Addams to enhance this overall tone and make it modern.

The Wizard of Oz

Leonie Eul, Janina Heinz, Bailey Mercer, Joshua Will

We chose the Wizard of Oz as our book because we wanted to bring back this classic novel to be revitalized for younger audience. We decided after our interviews that using a manga art style would help capture the attention of a younger audience that struggles to focus with text-heavy novels. The target audience is young female adults aged 12-20 years old. We chose to go with a Studio Ghibli style using MidJourney’s Niji model to generate our images for our graphic novel.

The Wizard of Oz

Nina Juppe, Alex Lalonde, Zhen Park-Vandal, Dayna Tscharnke

Will artificial intelligence shape the creation of our literary works? This was the central inquiry driving our collaborative course, a joint effort between TMU and Stuttgart HDM. To explore this question, we embarked on a creative journey to develop a graphic novel, partnering with ChatGPT and MidJourney. The outcome of our endeavor is an innovative reimagining of the classic narrative of "The Wizard of Oz," showcasing the fascinating possibilities that emerge when AI collaborates with human creativity. Join us on this exploration of the future of storytelling, and welcome to a journey to the future of literature!
