Fun, powerful, and easy as pie, this is creative software at its best. Pop this into the computer and in no time flat, your kid can turn his life into a comic strip using his favorite digital photos. Choose from more than 300 templates, drag and drop images from iPhoto, pick a font, and get speech bubbling! Special effect lettering and captions make those cartoon balloons look absolutely expert. Teens can also use their own drawings, simply by scanning them in, saving them in a folder, and dropping them into place. A cool tool for script storyboarding, homemade comics or cards, and some offbeat writing practice. (Freeverse, $29.95)
