ToonDoo appears to offer the most features and generates a wider variety of toon styles. Their online editor is also very easy to use and offers a vast array of objects such as characters, backgrounds, balloon bubbles and more.

Comiqs is a little different than the other services in this lineup because they do more of the captioning photographs type of comic strips. However, the reason they are included here is because they do offer the ability to use your own drawings so it can allow you to create and share your own comic strip online like the others. Here’s a video of how it works:
All of these services and any worthy newcomers will be tracked in this public document called Comics 2.0. Come back to it often to see what’s new or what’s changed. These services give everyone a great way to unleash the artist trapped within and easily share our comics with the world.
