Clearly a false start :)

I commented earlier, it seemed a bit harsher than I intended, I'm gonna try to be constructive since I read in your profile that this is a comic to learn. I like the joke first of all, it's very peanuts ish a bit dry but clever. I'm not a huge fan of using software that does all the work for you, I usually think the not perfect art you could produce for it is better, but hey my opinion. I think the problem with using this program is it will never stand out, which is a bummer cause like I said the writing on this gag is pretty good, nice timing and all of that. However that feel of personality is kind of lost, and with comics like this that's kind of it's strongest feature.

I understand your point on using comics-making software, Eddie.

I couldn't draw a stick figure to save my life and "lojbo ckule" is a project for which I'd like to create a comics. The only option for me is to use some sort of software. After all, I've seen many authors using Poser, Second Life or even photos of Lego sets to create their comics.

Since "lojbo ckule" is a teaching tool similar to "Manga Guide to Physics", I decided to try manga style and ComiPo is to only option at the moment. It's still very limited and I'm using Second Life backgrounds to try to add some more variety.

I know that the drawing will be somewhat "flat" but it's the price I have to pay for not being able to draw it myself. I'm focusing more on the story-telling and on making the pages as engaging and clear as possible.

Contrary opinion, methinks this doesn't actually look too bad at all. Sure, maybe there's a feeling of overfamiliarity with the genre but if you hadn't explained how you made this, I wouldn't have known.
