SuperFX is available on devices with A12 and M1 and later processors as an in-app purchase with a free 2-week trial.
Compared to our previous ComicBook! effects, SuperFX is a game-changer. It offers significant visual enhancements and improved resolution, and the SuperFX styles are fully automatic. They optionally have three different detail options, each with three different halftone types, including CMYK and an all-new line screen.
Our SuperFX effects are high-definition and generated directly on the user's device, ensuring complete privacy and the ability to use them without an internet connection.
At our core, we believe in preserving the original traits of a photo while adding cutting-edge effects. Unlike other generative AI, our models do not alter personalities or hallucinate objects. Additionally, we trained our models on ethically sourced and homemade datasets.
*The one and only Joanna Mulder lovingly drew the vast majority of our 374 included stickers
**PDF files are only editable in external applications such as Adobe Illustrator and Inkscape.
We commit to continuously improving ComicBook! 2, and we encourage everyone to suggest ideas for future updates free of charge!

Ratings and Reviews
Very good app. Some suggestions
Super handy app! 5 star for sure. But at the same time I have a few suggestions for some features that maybe developers can make them better in the next version.
1. Photos cannot be cropped in this app. We have to crop and adjust them before we add them into comic blocks.
2. I guess the developer designed this app for mostly English users, because the Captions are weird in sizes if I type in Chinese or Japanese characters. Also the Chinese characters font type are not adjustable. Title caption can only use in English. If developers can fix it that will be wonderful.
3. Captions have only one direction (left to right). If you can provide a top to bottom directions, that’ll be great.
4. Captions cannot be tilted or rotate.
5. Only one font type can be selected in one caption, which means I can’t highlight one or several words within a sentence.
6. Stickers can be vertically flipped but not horizontally.
Overall, this is a great app. I really hope developers can fix the Chinese and Japanese characters problem soon, because I know that not only myself but many people like to type characters in the comics and make it cooler.
Absolutely everything you need
Such a wonderful tool to create the comic you’ve always wanted to. True not all the extras are free but it was actually after I had made over 50 professional pages that I decided to spring a whole dollar on one of the extras, even though I really didn’t necessarily need it. If you are creative and can learn this app it is great. Couldn’t recommend more.
Basic with notable issues
A bug has been introduced which makes this unusable. The circles used to manipulate the caption tails now export with both pdf and images making the output flawed.
You can do basic layouts with this app and it’s fairly useful for that. However it can’t do the one thing you think it might: make a book. The only way to create a book is in app. You can’t view it outside. To do that you have to export pdfs or images and build it yourself with other software. Which is now broken due to the caption tail issue.
Caption types are limited. Only one form allows you to size the box. No typical “radio” message type caption bubble.
In your saved pages, there is no obvious order. It seems like last update sorted them by regency of edit but there is no way to sort by name for instance which is hugely inconvenient.
Pictures also can’t be locked in place unless you apply the comic book filter appearance to them.
Overall it’s ok for a quick layout but it quickly runs into usability problems.
Developer Response ,
In our testing, caption hints are not saved with images or PDFs. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org so we may troubleshoot the issue you seem to be experiencing. Actually, all captions can be manually resized; please contact us for usage hints. Pages are sorted by modification date. You can apply an effect that doesn't make any changes to lock the images if you like (for example, Classic->Adjust Image), but we will consider adding a lock option. Thanks for your suggestion.
