Ever read your life in a comic book? No? Well, it's time to hop to it! ComicStrip allows iPad users to create comic strips of whatever they can the photographs of. Take pictures of your daily life and make it into an exciting comic by adding captions and speech bubbles. The interface also has built-in page layouts. This is something that I would have a problem with, since I know that comic strips are all about the action, and making things pop out sometimes. So, unfortunately, just for that, I have to give this sweet application a 3 out of 5. It's a great starting point for students taking narrative classes in their Sophomore and Junior years of art education at CIA, but it still can't live up to hand-drawn action. So, for $.99, I recommend this app for those students taking narrative classes to use this as a preliminary story-boarding technique. For those people who want to get serious with this app, download a second program from Maple Studio, called Photo to Cartoon, which alters your photos to seem more comic-strip like. It's $.99 and is pretty cool. ComicStrip in iTunes - $0.99 Photo to Cartoon in iTunes - $0.99
