New Comic Life for iPad Reviews

In a head-to-head comparison with other photo comic apps MacWorld says,"Comic Life stands out with a mixture of power and cuteness." "Only Comic Life from Plasq offers unique, colorful, and truly thematic themes - flowers, summertime, travel, and the like."

And a Tap UK Review gives us a tip of the hat, "Already a huge success on the desktop, Comic Life brings all of its verve and style to the iPad with intuitive, simple controls and a range of preset templates, providing everything you need to create striking, entertaining comics from your digital photographs." Basically, " this is an app that will appeal both to hobbyists and to more serious comic designers: its slick interface, coupled with its tremendous ability to customise images and text, make Comic Life a real joy to use."

Graphic Kits for Comic Life

If you'd rather use artwork than photos to create your comics in Comic Life, Sion Morris and ComicKits.com is a great resource for artwork! The Comic Kits include characters, backgrounds, objects and much more, all arranged into themes and spaces to make it easy for you to find what you need. Check out their site and see how you can create a whole world in Comic Life with Comic Kit.
