Thanks to the wonder of twitter and @MissZadorozny and her blog I found ToonDoo today. It's online and very easy to use. I have made comics online before, using make beliefs comix, but ToonDoo takes the online comic making experience to a whole new level. There are many more characters and clips available and ToonDoo also gives me the ability to draw and create unique characters (TraitRs: not the best name for them in my opinion).
It's got me excited to make some comics and it's ease makes me think it will work great in the classroom. It makes comic creation easy for everyone. It's a great way to engage visual learners and to use the viewing and representing arts in ELA.
