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.

I’ve only been using this for a day, but its really easy to use, you can get great results quickly and it offers brilliant value for money.
There’s loads of pre-defined templates and styles.
I only have two gripes, 1) I can’t add images by browsing to my projects folder, where my images are, but I can drag and drop these in from finder, and 2) I can’t find a way to export to PDF with a 3mm bleed and crop marks, that would earn it 5*

I used this app to create my company’s brochure. It’s AMAZING! Especially now the add graphics feature has been so comprehensively improved. I am about to do our 2015 brochure in Comic Life 3, and I think we will be doing our Trade Brochure in it too.

Keep on developing this app please. Give us more styles, more options and allow us more freedom to make changes within one publication - switch styles, more power to change the look of pages etc.

I’m recommending this to anyone who has a mac!!!

This is now a very good app since the latest update

I first gave this app 2 stars but since the update all the bugs seem to have been fixed, there’s a small learning curve but once you get the hang off it, it’s great.
