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.
Back when I was writing The Lemon I found that making comics was my favorite part of the site. At the bottom of this post is a comic I did back in 2003.
