Here’s a great question I got from Amber:

What’s the best way for students to create a comic book like thing on the computer?

Zimmer Twins

A very popular online program for creating (free) comics that can be shared.

Lego Comic Builder

Create a comic using Legos. Lots of characters, backgrounds, objects and dialogue options. I use it for 2nd graders.


Create comic strips that are fun and easy with a diverse cast of characters, scenes, backgrounds, objects, and dialogue prompts.

Comic Creator from ReadWriteThink

Compose comic strips using a variety of backgrounds, characters, and props, and dialogue
