Comic Book Creator with Content Pack
Creating comics is simple. This version includes a content "fun pack" chock-full of images to use. I chose a page layout from a selection of templates and started plugging artwork into it. I found it very easy to tweak the images--moving them right and left, zooming in and out--to get the right look. The balloons and text are movable and resizable, too--and there's a small but decent array of fonts--so it didn't take long to make a readable comic that anyone could follow.
Your comics don't have to be static, either. With the help of some bundled applications, you can use video and sound to add effects and punch (and punching effects) to your panels. These apps--Audacity, Fraps, and PD Particles --can be installed from Comic Book Creator's main screen.
There are two main downloads of the software, a larger one that includes the basic content pack and a smaller one that does not. This version contains the content pack, so expect your download to take a while. Other versions include content packs for licensed properties: Charlotte's Web, Marvel Heroes, Speed Racer, Tokyopop manga, and more.
Note: This demo version works for 10 days. Some menu items, such as the ability to print comics, are grayed out. The link takes you to the vendor's site, where you can choose to download this large file as a regular download or a BitTorrent.
