Overall, Comics Head offers many tools and utilities that make creating a personalized comic book or presentation as easy as drag-and-drop. However, there are several things that I, personally, find extremely irritating. The first, and foremost is the fact that Comics Head doesn’t support retina graphics. On any modern, and even 2-year-old device the interface looks blurry and dated. While it does make use of custom-styled popup for controls like layers, the lack of retina graphics significantly reduces the appearance of quality. Speaking of quality, when rendering web pages, maps and cropping various objects, the quality of the image drops drastically and it’s very evident in the its resolution. Despite these things, Comics Head still remains a great little tool for designing custom, personalized comic books. Go ahead and check out the free version if you’re unsure of how useful it may be to you.
