Or maybe you're really serious about comics. You want to be the next Charles Schultz, Berke Breathed, Lynn Johnston, Cathy Guisewite, or Bill Watterson. You want to create your own characters--with a graphical tool specially designed for that purpose--and use them to create a regular comic to publish on the web or in print. Comic Strip Factory allows you to create great comic strips. If your sense of humor exceeds your drawing skills, it includes a set of eight amazing characters from two professional artists, broken down into parts and assembled into poses. Each character has numerous facial expressions and body positions that you assemble in unique ways to tell your own stories. Use the preassembled poses, or modify them by replacing some parts, or build your own. Even modify the parts for your own purposes.
Comic Strip Factory also comes a bunch of terrific comic backgrounds, so you have great settings for your stories. From the desert island with one palm tree to fields, a forest, a living room, some offices, a restaurant, and more, there are a variety of settings and styles. And both the scenery and the characters come with plenty of related props. The program has flexible panel-shaping capabilities to lay out your story. Whether you're making a one-panel cartoon, a four-panel daily newspaper strip, a larger Sunday comic, or a comic book or graphic novel, Comic Strip Factory is up to it. And it supports multiple pages too. Dialogue balloons are easy to create, and offer several different shapes and styles, including multiple balloons joined together.
