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.

Unktomi ,

Have always enjoyed this app but lately...

...this thing is crashing like no one's business. Constantly have to save...if it'll even let me do that. Hope this gets resolved soon because I really do love this app. There's nothing else like it.

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.

Serial Number

I bought this from the app store and today I open it up and see a watermark all the pages. Its asking for a serial number to register the app which I never got. App is useless now

Edit: I was running the wrong version. Thanks guys for the speedy response.

Developer Response ,

Hi FBI-team! That means you have downloaded the trial version from Because you purchased from the Mac App Store, you will not receive a serial number. So first delete Comic Life 3 by moving it to your Trash. Then open the Mac App Store on your Mac, "Click your name or the sign-in button in the sidebar." then find Comic Life 3 and click the Cloud with the arrow. It will download the App Store version and not ask for a serial number.
Please contact if you continue to have issues. Thanks very much!

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.
