27 Ways: Best Year Ever

Scripting Comics In The Classroom

We’ve been having deep thoughts about script writing and education in our offices lately, and I wanted to reach out to our community with them.

Comic Life 3 received a major overhaul on several fronts, including the work flow process, which is what I want to discuss today. Here at plasq we do not pretend to be educators, but we have spent years listening and adapting our apps based on the suggestions and needs of the educators with which we have spoken.

New York Times Comic Life Review!

I’m not sure if you’ve heard of this little publication that’s been around a while, The New York Times. They just put out an article about making your own comics, and guess who is at the top of the heap? That’s right, Comic Life! Yeah, baby!

Here are some excerpts from Kit Eaton’s article, Transforming Your Photos Into Comic Strips:

“Of the comic book apps I’ve used, Comic Life, $5 for an iOS version, has the most features and works best on an iPad because of the bigger screen.”

“Because the app relies on your photos to create stories, you don’t need any drawing skills to get a good result.”

“I love the way the app allows you to edit tiny details, from the shape and style of word bubbles to the size and placement of each story cell.”
