What do you like best?

Fairly easy to use. Wide selection of template options and good variety of design tools. Drag and drop ease of use and flexible template windows. May not appeal to serious career comic creators after awhile, but saves a lot of time getting rolling if you are just starting out! Fun to use and easy to understand user interface. A great way to get your feet wet when learning to produce a comic. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It gets a little jumpy with bigger image files. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The design is so intuitive that if you have any experience with any design programs, the learning curve is practically zero! The very first time I fired Comic Life up, it was instant fun! Now that I've created a few cool projects with it, I'm thinking more and more in terms of, this would make a cool Comic Life image, whether it be an advertisement, a help file or training manual or even maybe a political post or two. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What's not to like? Even the trial is 100% the way a trial version should be done, it's not a feature-limited version, you get the full-fledged version for 30 days and then it's a very reasonable $29.99 when you're ready to buy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Realize that it's fun enough to use that you could spend more hours futzing around with the software than you planned on! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Advertisements, help files and training manuals all lend themselves quite nicely to Comic Life. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

With this program I found the way to give a creative image to my presentations, invitations or messages on social networks. It is easy to use, it has many templates or design options, I can download the images or photos from my PC or choose to take a screenshot. It also allows me to intervene an image or create a cartoon. Good program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What do you like best?

It’s such a creative outlet to turn real life photos into a comic book. It’s engaging and also puts an awesome twist on projects. It brings the old fashioned comic book that used to be a main source of entertainment back to life again. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Dropping and dragging in Comic Life 3 is easy and adaptable for the first time user. Shaping titles and word bubbles are my favorite part. Keeping aspect in ration without holding the shift-key is a plus when you're creating on the fly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish there were more skew and perspective options for resizing panel boxes. I would love to see an algorithm that aligns other panels on the page simultaneously. Example: If I pick a row of panels and change one panel to a right trapezoid the following panel will become a left trapezoid. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The speedy presentation is the key factor for us. When I take on a new client, I can post thumbnails and mock-ups for customer approval. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Even though there are a lot of templates to choose from, it would be nice to have a library online where you can choose from other templates that people have designed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Ease of use and the attention to detail are the most remarkable aspects of this software Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It doesn’t let you export in professional application formats Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are a professional comic creator you need to consider other options but if you are a beginner this is the best deal for getting into the digital comic creation development. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Comic Life is design to tell a story with pictures but I realized that using your artwork as jpeg it let you build your comic professionally and also export it in pdf format. It help me to show comic ideas before working on the real deal and it can be done fast. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The templates are incredibly easy to manipulate, and to understand. Everything is vibrant and the interface itself is clean cut. Very simple to navigate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

My initial first impression was ..."this is cheesy looking". The initial templates lack stylistic guides beyond Kirby and Stan Lee, or the golden age of comics, which isn't entirely my thing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're a fan of the old-school comics style, definitely give Comic Life a try! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I personally enjoy making fliers that look like comic book covers with it! I can easily promote my business with the eye catching visuals they provide. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
