Comic Life is a graphics design app for creating comic books. It has a simple interface that allows you to use layouts that resemble the look of comic books and add your own pictures to it. There are tens of page layouts and you can even design your own by dragging and dropping panels on a blank page and then arranging them. The default layouts look good enough that you don't have to worry about that, though.
On the bottom-right side of the interface is the photo library. By default, your Photos folder is scanned and you can simply drag and drop pictures from it into the panels or the page. After you add a photo, there is a drop-down menu at the top that allows you to apply certain effects to it. There are a bunch of effects: comic book, night vision goggles, camo, amp it up, etc. They all look very nice. You can easily undo any action and move and change the shapes and sizes of the pictures and panels. You can even capture images from your webcamera.
Comic Life makes it really easy to create single-page or multi-page comic books. Printing is very easy thanks to all the options that you have at hand. I like the fact that the user interface is very simple and it all fits in a single window without any floating panels of any kind. Working with images was a smooth experience and the application seems native and very stable.
