Comic how-to guide

How to make your comic

  1. Click on Create a comic.
  2. Give your comic strip a Title – for example: ‘Babalwa’s Big Headache’ or ‘Do Lineo and Dario stay together?’ If you’re not sure yet you can come back to this later.
  3. Tell your story in 4 panels. You can choose from the selection of ScenesCharactersProps and Text fields. Simply click on a Scene, Character or Prop and it will appear in the panel.
  4. You can add Text by typing into the open text field.
    • You can select text to appear in a thought bubble, or in a speech bubble. TIP: sometimes we can say different things to what we’re thinking!
    • You can select text to appear outside a bubble and in two sizes – small or large. TIP: these are useful to ‘set the scene’.
  5. Once you’ve created one panel, you have the option to Clone one panel to use in another.
  6. Once you’ve completed all 4 panels you can either Save as a draft, or Publish.  In order to do this, you’ll need to log in or create an account. It’s quick and easy – see ‘Create an account’ further down this page for more information.

How to share your comic

  1. When you’ve created your perfect comic you can share it over Whatsapp, Facebook and lots of other platforms.
  2. In order to share your comic, click Publish.  
  3. You’ll then see all 4 panels in a scrolling pane with social buttons for sharing on your networks on the top right.
