ComicBook! iPad app introduces an easy and innovative way of designing your very own comic books. Here is our complete review:

Have fun making your friends or even yourself into comic book characters with this new app. It has everything you need in creating a fun and personalized comic book. There’s a user guide that will teach you more about this app. However, you’ve got to do away with reading since the instructional videos aren’t available for preview yet.

The Create Menu at the bottom of the screen gives you a variety of sets to choose from. The Panel Layout consists of 16 portrait and 14 landscape templates. Choose a layout for you to get started. You have the option to either select a photo from the photo library or take a new one (only for iPad 2 users though). Rotate, adjust, or crop the photo using your fingers. This is a comic book that does not require you to draw.

Of course, comic books won’t be complete without the captions and dialogues. Pick a bubble from the Caption Menu and drag it anywhere you want. You can choose the font, size and color of the test and move the bubble’s tail to point to the character.

The Stickers Menu has a colorful display of stickers for you to add on your photo. You can rotate the angle of the sticker and even change its size. Simply click the x button to remove the captions or stickers. An FX Menu for filter, brightness and color adjustments are also available to add more effects on your photos.

Once you’re done with a comic book page (you can only do one page at a time), you can either save the page to your photo library or send it to your email, Facebook or Twitter for your family and friends to see.

ComicBook! is available on iTunes for $1.99.
