Comic Life is a fun application that lets you create a real life comic with your photos and images!

This application is super-easy to work with. In fact, using it feels more like playing around - you can drag and drop your images onto the interface, arrange them onto a page, drag over speech bubbles and enter your text.

Comic Life offers bunches of shapes, forms and lettering with styles reminiscent of the best cartoons and comics. All can be customized from the style attributes tab on the right. We also liked the filters, which lets you give a real atmosphere to your photos, like turning them into a scene from Sin City. Comic Life also features loads of templates and themes that you can start off with.

Importing pictures into Comic Life is easy, as you'll only need to drag and drop them from your desktop or pick straight from the preview pane in the application. Even more, you can use your webcam or DV camera to take snaps and post them immediately into your comic strip. This is a paid app, but you’ll be able to try Comic Life free for a while – and it’s well worth it!

Very intuitive and loaded with features, Comic Life is a great way to have fun with your pictures - highly recommended.
