    I have seen a few game reports done in a comic style and wondered if anyone could recommend a cheap bit of kit.
    I have been looking at comic software but I don’t need any of the drawing tools as I will be importing photos…

    Try this.  http://plasq.com/apps/comiclife/macwin/

    here is a report done with it.  https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1293907/first-play-comic-style-report

    I have nothing to do with either link but I knew something was out there that people used.  Good luck and I hope you post the fruit of your labors here.

    Do the photo comic reports with black and white pics – Savage Sword of Conan style 😁

    I have been exploring Comic Life and am still clueless and do not have any suitable images, but have cobbled this together.
    I think once I have learnt how to work it properly, that this could be the future!

    A member of my gaming group did this some years ago for a pirate adventure AAR, and he wrote it in English:

    I think you can also use it for other purposes; perhaps rules explanations, and to add texts on pictures, etc?

    ComicLife is great!  I have used it for about 5 WW2 skirmish game reports and it is easy to use and produces great comics.  Here is a link to one of them:

    An example from that report:

    Looks good to me!  If you didn’t use Comic Life, how did you create it?

    Sorry, I did use Comic Life.
    I just don’t know what I am doing and do not have any suitable images for the frames, so I just knocked that up to get a feel for it.

    Nice!  That’s a good start.  I think that comic format will really work for this style of gaming, especially if you take dedicated pictures of the action with actually making the comic style report in mind from the get-go.
