Comic Life

This is an interesting and not entirely worthless Mac App. Basically you can load graphics (either hand drawn or as photos) and annotate them with all the usual comic style balloons and stylized "Wow"s. The interface is easy and export to pdf format makes the output easily accessible by others. The interesting aspect of preparing for Comic Life is that, if you are using photos (which I have to as I can't draw) then you have to think ahead and take specific photos - not only to strike the right pose but also space to accept the balloon. Empty space is important, just as in advertising!
