Abstract: The Outsiders is an immersive, sci-fi motion-comic tale about how social connection and love prevail over experiences of alienation, discrimination, and identity issues. The story follows the journey of an alien (Zia) who escape to Earth in search of her unique identity while forced to be courageous to survive in the harsh prejudice society. Along her journey, she met a humanoid robot child (Zora), and the two relied on one another to achieve their goals of "fitting in". This narrative is a metaphor for people who stand out; "outsiders" seeking to be accepted and respected for who they are, regardless of what makes them different. This comic is used as a medium to allow readers to read themselves into the story to immerse themselves in the narrative and the world the characters live in. The story aims to present the feeling and consequences of alienation caused by discrimination and prejudice to raise empathy for the characters and the real-world everyday victims. The project will explore ways to master the creative-technical structure of comics by using visual narratives, fragmented grid structure and animated motion. Furthermore, explore how visuals can allow readers to construct their versions of the story to create a personal experience while driven by the central theme and plot.
