Comeeko – Create Comic Strips
I discovered Comeeko via Tech-Buzz.net and it’s a lot of fun and it allows you to create comic strips out of your photos by adding bubbles, captions and text. They have a huge gallery of objects (or snippets) which could be dragged and dropped into the comic strip to make it a bit more interesting. Once you’re comic strip is done, it can be shared via email or of course posted to a website.
