Comics Head – Storytelling Tool for Kids, Parents and Teachers

Comics Head by NextWave Multimedia is a creativity app designed to empower children, parents, and teachers to easily create stories and comics. If you have tried Toonia Storymaker, StorySmith, Medieval Kingdom, or Toontastic in the past, then Comics Head will feel very familiar, as its purpose is similar.

Using templates, props, characters, backgrounds, and speech bubbles, allows you to let your imagination run wild and create the stories you have always dreamed of, even if you lack any natural talent at drawing.

Comics Head is like nothing you’ve ever seen before! While the others are aimed at children starting from the age of 4, and therefore are quite simple and limited, Comics Head will simply blow your mind away with its endless possibilities.

Comics Head Creativity Apps

So many options and menu buttons, but as soon as you’re done creating your first comic, you’ll feel right at home.

So, as far as ease of use and support goes, Comics Head is suitable for anyone above the age of 9.

You Can Create Comic Books For iPad

For you to conceptualize how limitless Comics Head is, I’ll guide you through a few of the steps and options. You start by picking a panel depending on how many scenes you want in your comic. Now you have your blank comic, you can tap each individual frame to highlight its main menu. And once you select a category, the available options will be displayed at the top of the screen. When you tap on Assets, you’ll be able to choose your background, characters, props, and special effects.

In “Backgrounds” for example, you will find dozens of outdoor and indoor illustrations, colors, and textures. You can use as background: backyards, parks, open roads, bus stations, mountains, deserts, beaches, libraries, restaurants, living rooms, bedrooms and more! And every single item can be further edited: horizontal/vertical flip, copy, crop, polycrop (similar to shape selection tool in Photoshop), and filter, and if you like anime series then 9anime is best for you.

Move on to characters, and it will make your head spin! There are so many available characters that they had to organize into 18 different style categories: goofball, cute, classic, scribbled, doodle, etc. And even more, each character is available in various stances, and with different facial expressions. So that you can create every possible situation you could think of.

And the story goes on when we move to speech bubbles. You can edit everything you could imagine: the size, shape, pointer, text font, text size, border thickness, border color, background color. When you’re done with your comic, you can save it, save it as a template, print it, Facebook or Twitter. And there is no point for me to go on, as I am pretty sure you have already pictured how limitless Comics Head is.

Comics Head Create Your Own Comic Books

Overall, Comics Head is an amazing app to stimulate your imagination. An excellent choice for children to learn how to plan a story (characters, settings, chain of events), and the perfect tool for comic book fans to create their own. A 5-star app that you can get on iPhone and iPad for $3.99 only, or for $0.99 on your Android device.
