Create a comic worthy of the Sunday newspaper or your favorite pulp-fiction cover.

Pop Dot Comic is a fun way to create comic-book style illustrations from your snapshot or ones taken of your friends and family. Pop Dot Comic applies thick outlines, bold colors, and plenty of benday dots to newsprint or pulp papers to give every creation the look of one that’s been printed or published.

In the past, halftones were tediously inked in by cartoon artists or created in darkrooms. With Pop Dot Comic you can easily and quickly convert your photo into a comic book drawing that’s worthy enough for the Sunday newspaper or your favorite pulp-fiction cover. With a library of included “Fun Stuff”, custom messages can be added to speech bubbles and sound effects will give your creation “POW”. When your finished creating a comic book photo save it to your library or post them to your friends and family for funny moments.

Benday Dots — like those used in the traditional printing process. Benday Dots are two (or more) different small, colored dots combined to create a third color. Back in the day, pulp comic books used Benday Dots in primary colors to inexpensively create the secondary colors such as flesh tone.

Fully adjustable control on all aspects of the process: Dot or Line size, Outline size, Color variation, Border: Width, Inset, Color & Corner Radius.

Jixipix knocks another one right out of the park! While I recognize that half-tone effects may not be everyone's cup of tea, those who get into them will truly appreciate the breadth and scope of this app. As with all their other apps (and I have them all), the developers have showered PopDot with detail and care, leaving no stone unturned. If I were to change anything about this app, it would be to add user controls for brightness, saturation and contrast, as many of the filters are too bright for my personal liking, and I find myself having to switch to another app to refine those elements after using PopDot. Meanwhile, thank you Jixipix for adding yet another element to my iPhoneography experience! I look forward to the next new app that comes from your brilliant drawing boards!

Takes Me WAY Back - 50 yrs !

Playing with this app is so much fun. It really can do what it says. Only it does it better than the funnies I recall reading 50-55 yrs ago. NOT better than DC Comics, but hey - those were & always will be, perfection itself. I will say, "if you get this app, you'll never need or find, another of it's kind" None even come close to this one.

Fun to Play Around With

This is a fun app to play around with your photos but it doesn't give all of your photos that true comic book color or feel. Some pics turned out really cute but others not so much. I would like to be able to adjust the colors in certain spots like on a face or add lip color. It needs some work but it's close. They need more options. A lot of the ones they have seem too similar. I love the comic book captions & speech bubbles you can add to pics too. Overall, it's a fun app.
