Turn your photos into amazing comic pages or create an entire comic book with Comic Life. Start with fully customizable templates or build your own pages with speech balloons, comic lettering, and photo filters so slick they can make your grandmother look like a superhero.

Comic Life isn't just for creating comics. You can retell a family vacation or capture a special day using your photos. It's simple to do: just drag photos onto the page and add your text in speech balloons and captions. Filter your images and add in some halftones or speedlines for more action.

With Comic Life you'll never look at your pictures the same way again.


The app that started a revolution. Comic Life burst onto the Mac scene in 2005 and caused a sensation winning both an Apple Design Award (for Best Product New to Mac OS X) and a Macworld Eddy. Now there's a bunch of new features:

* Brand new filters for even better comic photo styling
* Instant Alpha for creative photo layouts
* Script editor for writing your story and simple drag and drop for adding script text to your comic page
* New templates to get you going quickly
* 3D lettering effects
* Advanced graphics options: brush strokes, cool fill effects and opacity controls
* New editing interface with groups, rulers, 2 up display

It's the perfect addition to your Mac.

Generally great app, but...

I have loved using this app for years, but ever since upgrading to the new iOS, this has been running slow as molasses. Hanging up all the time, no matter how simple the task it is working to accomplish. I'm getting really tired of seeing a spinning wheel every time I try to do something in the program. Hope this gets resolved soon, as I really do enjoy using this product.

Developer Response ,

Hi Unktomi! Thanks for the review. Sorry you are having issues with Comic Life recently. Please get in touch with our support team - - as we'd like to get a video of the issue and also some logs. A quick thing to try is to make sure you have plenty of hard drive space (more than 10GB is recommended) and restarting your Mac. If that doesn't help, please let us know! Thanks for your patience.

It's Not Just For Comics

I use this app for all kinds of designs and comics too. I've used 1, 2, and now 3 and they have all been great. This also competes with the best of Logo Makers. I've used it for greeting cards, Facebook Banners, and many blog banners. This has been my favorite goto app since 2007 when it came with my first MacBook Pro.

Figured it out

At first i couldnt find all of the styles and filters I had in previous versions. Turns out they are all present when using the blank (with styles) format. Thanks to tech support for the help finding them.

Developer Response ,

Hi! Some templates don't have all the styles (or any styles, if choosing the "Blank" template); as the templates have been designed to have appropriate styles to suit the template.
If you want access to all the styles, you will need to choose the "Blank (with Styles)" template in the Template Chooser when Comic Life 3 launches - you will then have all the styles appear on the left. Please contact us directly if you have any issues or questions: - thanks!
