See You in the Funny Papers

If a picture is worth 1,000 words, a comic strip must equal a text bookful. And software that’s as much fun to use as its output is to look at has to be priceless. My comic strip got nothing but positive feedback from the people I showed it to. If I could change anything about the software’s interface, it would be the addition of a page size drop-down list and maybe a few text-editing buttons such as bold, italic, and underline to the main toolbar.

Although it’s possible to customize the toolbar, these particular attributes aren’t included as options. I also found myself moving panels when I just wanted to click them to make them active, which meant I was hitting Undo a lot. Those small issues aside, Comic Life is the most fun I’ve ever had on my Mac, and that’s saying something. Comic Life is available as a 30-day trial from Plasq and costs $24.95 for the full version. A package this powerful and inexpensive is practically an impulse buy if you take a lot of pictures and want to present them in a new and unique way.
