Comic Book Creator is a lot of fun. In fact, it’s responsible for the total lack of posting here on Monday. It’s a handy tool for making making comic pages, arranging images, adding text bubbles, and so on.

I think it would be a one or two hour job using CBC.
I enjoy making these little comics, although my desire to make them exceeds my ability to fill them with interesting content.
Oh yeah, the comic is huge so I’m not going to put it on the front page. Read on to see the whole thing:
