Easy to use - characters include robots, dinosaurs, and much more. Lots of ways to manipulate characters, add details, etc. Animation is quick so several cels will be needed to make a usable cartoon.

Even though this app is not free ($1.99) at this post time, it is inexpensive. Cartoonize your videos in different styles from old printer to neon. Multiple settings to customize your photos before sharing. I have not used the app yet but the reviews are very postive.

Although Bitstrips is already included in this collection of sites, the Bitstrips for Schools has some added features you might have missed. Check out the suggested activites. Unfortunately, this version is not paid which may put it out of some teachers' reach.

Free version or a whopping $0.99 for the pro version. Add captions, tiltes, speech and action balloons, etc to images taken on your Android. This could be great way to introduce comic strip creation to your students.

Donate comic books from the Platinum Age, Golden Age, Silver Age, Bronze Age, or Modern Age to charity and take back some closet space! The tax deduction benefits far outweigh having to sell the Comic book collection yourself, and the proceeds benefit families in need across the United States. Donate comics from all your favorite superheroes such as Spiderman, Batman, Captain America, Fantastic Four or Conan today!
