As is the case with Book Cover Creator we reviewed in a previous post, Comic Creator is another useful tool from ReadWriteThink that students can use to easily design their own comic strips. The tool provides students with a variety of features to employ in the creation process. They can choose from different backgrounds, add characters and pros, and type in their textual input.
Comic Creator is very easy to use. To get started will have to provide a name to their cartoon, add a subtitle and type in the name of the author. Next, they select one of the four templates provided there and hit next. Now they can add characters, balloons and props. There is also a text book where they can write in a caption for their comic. once done they click on finish to print their work.
Comic Creator can be used ‘by students from kindergarten through high school, for purposes ranging from learning to write dialogue to an in-depth study of a formerly neglected genre. The tool is easy to use, made even easier with the Comic Strip Planning Sheet, a printable PDF that comic creators can use to draft and revise their work before creating and printing their final comics’.
