Comic Life 3.5 by plasq: New templates!New Templates

You never knew a template could look this awesome.

We went back to the drawing board and created a fresh set of templates that highlight the incredible tools you have at your fingertips in Comic Life 3.5. These templates take advantage of Comic Life design features including full color halftone, page texture, 3D lettering, custom panels, and speedlines. We built these templates to make every page look like a professionally created composition. The best part is we have new templates for every comic category!

Full Color Halftone

Designing like a pro has never been easier.

Full color halftone is a trademark of comic design, but it is difficult to create without advanced graphics tools. At least it was until now! The full color halftone builder in Comic Life 3.5 lets you design complex halftones in just a few seconds. You can build gradients for the foreground and background, select the dot size and manipulate the halftone gradient. You have total control in one easy to use tool.

Comic Life 3.5 by plasq: Script Editor Upgrade

Script Editor Upgrade

Find the perfect harmony between script and templates.

You’re going to want to make so many comics with our new templates that we’ve made it easier than ever to move text from your script to a template. Now, for example, dropping caption text from your script on top of a caption element on the page replaces the text instead of adding a new caption. And, of course, you can still create new comic elements from your script. It’s the best of both worlds.

These aren’t the only changes in Comic Life 3.5, just the ones we think are the coolest! You’ll find lots of improvements across the app as you make your next comic.
