Stripgenerator is another comic strip creation tool. I’ve blogged about a couple of these already (see Chogger, Witty Comics and Make Beliefs Comix) and Stripgenerator works much the same as these. Basically, the main difference between them all is really the style of comic strip character and artwork that you want to produce. Stripgenerator has a fairly cool, alternative-type thing going which I quite like, and I would probably use this one more than Make Beliefs Comix perhaps, as it also gives you a variety of items to pick from as well as characters. I reckon boys particular would like the style of characters that Stripgenerator offers.
Signing up is as usual free, and little information is asked for apart from a username, email address and password. Signing up means you can hoard your comic creations in your gallery and use them whenever you want, rather than having to print them out immediately (or screencapturing them) as you need to do with Make Beliefs Comix. You can also find created comics by tags or description by using the search function. Completed comics can be embedded onto websites or emailed to pupils, the email option being good for pupils to send you their completed work without having to worry about printing problems (a common excuse at my school! – either paper is missing or printers are seemingly always broken!)
Creating the comic is easy. Just choose which character and items you want to use and drag them into the panels. You have a choice of how many panels you want to use, and the tools to adapt the images are very easy to use. Here is a rapid creation of mine that I made in about 5 minutes.
Quick and easy and cool looking as well. As I say, it is worth having a go with this comic creator as well as Chogger, Witty Comics and Make Beliefs (and probably others too!) to find out which you and your pupils most like and which is easiest to use for what you need.
